Imagine a world where you could walk into your local Koodo store and add $15 a month to your bill for your favorite wearable device!!

Telus is rolling out the apple watch very soon, and i totally understand that something like this is much more a Telus thing than a Koodo thing.

But I wish we could actually receive a subsidy on these devices by tacking them onto our plans.
It will be easy to come up with reasons why Koodo will not implement this.
But I would be doing myself a disservice by not at least putting the idea out there.

Especially around xmas time!!

People are already not happy about having to subsidise their own phones. Neat idea, but Koodo should get into tablets and data-only plans before anything else.

Considering that many wearables cost as much as a smartphone (or more, in the case of the Apple Watch), I don't think that this would pay off for Koodo.
