    Before I purchase the GPS only model, at least that's what I am considering, with my phone nearby...will I still be able to send and receive texts from Android users like I do on my iPhone with no problems?

    As long as your watch is in range or your iPhone, it can do (almost) anything the cellular models can do. That includes sending and receiving SMS messages. If you leave your phone behind, then anything that requires internet or phone service will stop working.

    There a some exceptions if the watch is still in range of previously joined wi-fi network, but it’s not something I’d be comfortable relying on outside of your own home network.

    Note: It is possible to turn off SMS messaging in settings, but it’s on by default.
