Thank you for visiting and posting on the Cricket Community Forum! At the moment we have no updates on the Apple watch. Please continue to check on our website for any updates.
i am also looking for support of cellular watch by cricket. I purchased the apple watch 4 with cellular option in anticipation of that. If they don’t add it soon, I might consider swirtching to tmobile.
Thanks for the reply! Do you know if this is something that Cricket has on their radar? It's something I've been waiting for since 2017 when the Series 3 was released. I love Cricket and don't want to leave, but I've been checking out other carrier plans lately because of this.
Same here! I got the apple watch series 4 with cellular version and hope cricket will have this option soon before I switch all my 5 lines to tmobile... c'mon cricket!! Please!!!
Hi, I have been holding off on the purchase of Apple watch 4 cellular version only since cricket doesn't support it. It would be so convenient to have cellular connection on the watch, so I don't have to lug around my phone everywhere. We, the cricket customers atleast deserve an answer about cricket's plans on Apple watch, like this year or next year or not in the near future. Few of my friends don't want to switch to cricket only due to this, even though they are paying higher at other major carrier.
It's good to see others wants this too. My understanding is that supporting esim cards (like those on the Apple watch) requires carriers to perform some network upgrades. It would be very helpful to know if Cricket is working on this, or if there's nothing in the pipeline at this time. I'm trying to decide whether to buy the LTE version of the watch, and knowing this would be helpful.
I was sitting here getting ready to switch our families 4 lines (plus an Apple Watch) to Cricket. I then had the realization that we had service for the watch, and googled to check that there would be coverage on Cricket....seeing that this is not supported immediately stopped our transfer to Cricket. I would put this as a high priority for Cricket to work on!

Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
