It is recommended that you try out each of the below-mentioned workarounds and then see which one spells out success for you. So with that in mind, let’s get started.

FIX 1: Check Availability

First and foremost, you should double-check whether the carrier supports Pixel Watch in your region or not. So refer to the below table to check this compatibility. If it is currently not available in your region, then there’s nothing that could be done from your end to make it up and running. It’s up to the carrier as and when they bring in their support for your watch.

FIX 2: Add a new line of service

If your carrier is part of the above list but you are still not able to use LTE/4G on your Pixel Watch, then you should get in touch with your carrier and ask them to carry out the following steps:

  1. To begin with, ask them to “add a new line of service” for your watch via “customer-provided equipment”
  2. They will now ask for the watch’s IMEI number. So open the dialer, type in *#06#, and tell them the IMEI number.
  3. They will now get a prompt on whether or not they should enable “number share”, tell them to select “Yes”.
  4. They will then add the carrier-based plan and complete your order. Once done, you should then try the activation through the Pixel Watch app.
  5. So tap on Mobile Network and you should now get a prompt that the eSIM is being downloaded [it might take a couple of minutes].
  6. As soon as the eSIM gets downloaded, your Pixel Watch will be activated!

That’s it. These were the two different methods to fix the issue of Pixel Watch LTE/Cellular Data not working. If you have any queries concerning the aforementioned steps, do let us know in the comments. We will get back to you with a solution at the earliest.
