Will the watch and phone be able to connect and receive calls if they are on different cellular networks?
I would think so. Both devices should be using the same Google account.
Not unless you're on Google Voice. Otherwise your phone number won't be tied to it. I'd wager that they most certainly do need to be on the same provider.
Pretty sure they won't need to be on the same cellular network. As some pointed out, if you use Google Voice, you could set up the Google Voice number to ring on both your cell phone and your smart watch. This is how I currently use the Samsung Gear S. AT&T will also be adding a service where you can have the same number work on your cell phone and your smart watch, but I believe that will have an additional cost.
Would you need to pay for a second service plan from your carrier for the watch?
No, Google will pay the second plan for you :-p Seriously though, few carriers offer a second SIM but that's rare.
I checked the Verizon site and it says you can add a watch to your plan for $5/mo (watch sold separately of course).
Not bad at all!

Taking calls on my wrist, now I actually want one.
Will it be able to be used as a loudspeaker for calls from the Phone itself?
Please support NFC on this device (and on Android Wear in general). Then you will have created the perfect base for an Ambient Assisted Living Device for the Elderly.
It does support NFC. As far as I know, Android Wear doesn't support NFC yet, though, so until Google gets it implemented, the NFC won't do you any good. It's nice to know hardware-wise it is there, though.
Did LG sleep with Google or something, the first Urbane have wrist gesture and emoji drawing first now this one have calling feature and LTE
This is the deal I have the watch urbane second edition and well it does have its own cell phone number which engages when the phone is untethered ... but tethered it keeps your cell phone number. This will change when the number sync feature comes into effect.Major problem to correct When the watch untethered to the phone the Google Voice Commands which control all aspects of messaging on the watch will become disabled. And applications that you can buy on the Play Store which allowed typing also become disengaged because it cannot recognize that an untethered watch still retains a signal on its ownBig thing to correct because all third party applications use the Google Voice Commands to launch dial and write messages. when it comes to the watch being used the phone application for the watch however does have a dial pad
Hello. I will be able to swap my Samsung galaxy edge plus with the watch if it's possible with you. Many thanks
Yeah, I just realized that was happening today when I could not receive a call on my watches phone number and noticed that the cell network on the watch was turning off by itself.
It seems the popular messaging apps like Wear Messenger or Coffee for Wear will have to update to look for a cellular connection first, and if found, send through the watch. Anybody like to comment on how to do this more specifically?
Me parece estupendo pero estan demasiado caros aún
Will i be able to swap my iphone simcard and data plan to the watch, and use it as the watch as a stand alone device. Without using the iphone. Is that possible, since the watch has a sim card. Thank you in advance.

It's easy to use in gym or anywhere in work. How to bring this new innovation in Bangladesh?
Your latesest Android wear update is a step BACKWARDS
"As long as your watch and phone are connected to a cellular network, you’ll be able to use your watch to send and receive messages" ... and make and receive calls.Makes it sound as if your cellphone must be powered on and connected to a cell tower to use your smartWatchPhone elsewhere? In other words, if phone is at home, but you are out bicycling, the watch will not work unless the phone is powered up.
Hey I have a question about these? Do they have a simcard slot so if I was to take the sim card outta my phone like ATT or Tmobile and then put it in the watch so it will work without needing bluetooth connectivity to my phone? http://goo.gl/srUfIa
Will the watch be available unlocked and usable with carriers other than AT&T or Verizon. I use T-mobile.
