Voice over Long-term Evolution (VoLTE) Smartwatch Market - Overview

VoLTE stands for voice over long-term evolution. It is a voice call over a 4G LTE network. It uses voice and data at the same time, and therefore, provides better network efficiency, which leads to better service. VoLTE offers several benefits that make it highly popular.  It allows very efficient use of the available mobile network spectrum. It makes better use of spectrum resources compared to 2G and 3G networks. Additionally, since service operators transfer voice services to LTE, and the 2G and 3G networks no longer carry the majority of voice traffic, the spectrum can be rearranged for 4G and 5G network. This process is known as spectrum refarming.

VoLTE also offers superior call quality and significantly saves the battery life of the device. It offers high definition (HD) voice quality, which is far better than 2G and 3G voice services. Existence of voice over LTE has also led to the development of new services. Mobile operators can offer improved solutions combining VoLTE with enterprise solutions. VoLTE-based smartwatches, which were launched in the recent past, use this new technology. Until now, the functioning of smartwatches depended on smartphones. However, with the help of LTE, these watches have become efficient standalone devices.

LTE in smartwatches allows users to connect to cellular networks and take calls, use various apps, and send and receive messages without needing the smartphone around. VoLTE- enabled smartwatches allow individuals to leave their smartphones at home and use the smartwatches for all types of basic functions. The watches are most appropriate when an individual does not want to take the bulky smartphone device everywhere, especially while playing sports and during exercise and running. These smartwatches comes with or without a dedicated sim card slot. The carrier operators charge a little extra per month for the bundle that includes voice-enabled cellular smartwatches.
