What’s the Difference?

  • Basically, both LTE and Bluetooth models have the same features. The difference between these two is that the LTE model comes with eSIM that enables it to make and receive calls without your phone, unlike the Bluetooth model that requires your phone to make calls as well as access to internet connectivity.
  • Unlike the LTE model, you can still make and receive calls with the Bluetooth model, but it must be connected to your phone.
  • The RAM size of the LTE model is also higher, while the Bluetooth model comes with 1GB, the LTE model comes with 2GB RAM, but performance remains awesome and about the same.
  • Subsequently, it’s expected that the LTE will have a shorter battery life compared to Bluetooth model even though both have the same battery capacity.
  • The LTE models are also priced higher than the Bluetooth models. Price of 41mm starts at $399 and $430 for the LTE model, while the 45mm price starts at $430 for the Bluetooth model and $480 for the LTE model.
