At this point, I don’t think they ever will. I got used to my Apple Watch being used with bluetooth, but I get how it can be convenient.

Its really pathetic how apple watch cellular still isnt capable with cricket. This is so outdated and the service isn’t worth waiting for them to get on board with apple watch cellular. Me and my family of 9 is definitely switching services this weekend, its unacceptable at this point.


Visible is the only company I know about that allows Apple Watches. Metro By T-Mobile has an andriod watch also.

However, there are a few reasons why Cricket may not be supporting Apple Watch cellular connectivity yet. First, Cricket is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), which means that they don't own their own cellular network. Instead, they rely on AT&T's network to provide service to their customers. It's possible that AT&T has not yet made Apple Watch cellular connectivity available to MVNOs like Cricket.

Second, Cricket may be focusing on other priorities, such as expanding their 5G network or improving their customer service. Apple Watch cellular connectivity is a relatively niche feature, and it may not be a priority for Cricket right now.

Finally, it's possible that Cricket is simply waiting for Apple to release a new Apple Watch model that is specifically designed for Cricket's network. This would ensure that the Apple Watch works seamlessly with Cricket's network and that customers have a smooth experience.
