How much is it to add a data plan to my GT08 Smartwatch?

Hello, I have a GT08 Android smartwatch. I would like to know as to what all would it cost me in order to add a data plan to my smartwatch for it to work along side of my lg v40 thinq phone that I had bought a few month's ago at my local At&t store. 

Thank you. I would appreciate it if someone can answer my question as soon as they can? 

Thank you again.

@PhillipStone06   You cannot use a smart watch on cellular with prepaid.  It would be Bluetooth only.  Prepaid is not compatible with number sync, which is how smart watches communicate and spoof the phone on POSTPAID only. 

Near as I can tell the watch is 2g only.  https://www.smartwatchspecifications.com/Device/gt08-smartwatch/

At&t has no 2g network and other carriers are shutting down 2 and 3g network and will not allow 2g only devices anymore. 

    So in short you can’t add a data plan to the watch, and it’s totally free to use it as a Bluetooth device.

Then to top it off you cant use a smartwatch with numbersync that does not have numbersync support.
