This would depend on the model of phone you're using @searley. If your phone's compatible, you can activate LTE by going to the Settings menu - then tap on the Connections selection. Scroll down to Mobile Networks - tap on it - tap on the Network Mode. You should then see LTE/4G selection.

In short.  No. The Watch Active2 is not supported currently on Vodafone.  In fact, not even EE will give yout a watch plan for it unless you buy the device itself directly from EE. Have found this out the hard way. By buying a watch direct from Samsung which I can't get connected!

That's partly true. You can get OneNumber eSIM separately from Vodafone. I have had it with watch I bought elsewhere  - it worked fine. But when I tried to activate the Active2 it says that watch is not supported in my region. I am wondering if this is even legal for Samsung to restrict service this way. In the end the technical requirement is eSIM support, which Vodafone does.
