The Impact of Device Entitlement in the World of Smartwatches

Smartwatches are much more than just timepieces. They let us do many things on our wrists, from tracking our fitness to controlling our smart homes. But there is another factor that is shaping the smartwatch industry: device entitlement. In this article, we will explore how device entitlement affects the way people use smartwatches and how networks can enhance customer satisfaction and generate new income streams with these wearable gadgets. 


First things first: What Is Device Entitlement?

Device entitlement is the way of granting or restricting access to certain features, services, or functions on a device. It ensures that users have the necessary rights or permissions to use specific capabilities based on their entitlement status. For example, device entitlement enables smartwatches to activate custom features, such as connecting with smartphones, so that users can take calls on their watches without needing the phone nearby. But device entitlement goes beyond this connection between smartphone and smartwatch. It also covers the entitlement of all Internet Multimedia Services. Such as: 

  • Apple One-click Transfer 
  • Apple Watch One-Number
  • VoLTE Entitlement
  • VoWiFi Entitlement
  • Personal Hotspot Entitlement
  • One Number Tethering Dynamic 
  • Preferred Roaming Selection
