I got a Fossil Gen 5 LTE Smartwatch and I am not able to connect it to the verizon network. I have been chatting with Verizon, Fossil, and Google for the last 3 months and still no answers.
I simply do not have the Connect to Verizon Network option on the WearOS app. I dont know how hard that is for anyone to understand.
According to both Verizon and Google my phone is compatible. I have an LG V20.
I just need my smartwatch on the verizon network. Why do I have to go through the Dumb WearOS app? Why cant Verizon have some other way to provision it? This has been very frustrating to say the least.

The watch was purchased through the verizon website. I can get through the entire setup and it doesnt ask to connect to the verizon network. I go into the WearOS app on my phone and the connect to verzion Network is not there either.
I bought this watch for the LTE option.

It gives me that error everytime I try to connect, I have the same watch and purchased from the Verizon app store
