    I was able to get handoff working under Sierra 10.12.2 with my iPhone and my iWatch is working with Auto-unlock.

    It activated after I updated my system definition to 17,1 and then updated my iMessage settings with P1grim's tutorial.

    I'm not sure the system definition did it as much as the changes to iMessage. Previously, it was working but only sporadically. I think when I added all the serials explained in the tutorial, that helped the other issues (but I'm new and only guessing).

    The watch is able to log into the computer after sleep...says 'unlocking with Apple Watch.' Before, it wouldn't even connect when trying to setup in preferences/security.

    Only thing I can't yet do is WiFi Calling. When I click the option to upgrade then click 'Enable,' nothing happens. On my MacBook, it authenticates and asks for a code from my iPhone. But calls through the phone are good.

    This links to a Fenvi card labeled DT92. Is this the same card you're using?

    That's a different card...appears to be WIFI only.
    I checked and it doesn't look like Amazon has the t919 at the moment...only the DT92 comes up when searching.
    This should be the correct card (or google Fenvi t919 in the shopping section).

    I blindly picked up the wifi card at the link above.

    Are there kexts needed for the t919? or should it work out of the box?

    I installed the one above (DT92) and it crashes on boot. I'd like to get that to work and see if that, along with my BT dongle helps get watch unlock working (not too concerned about handoff)

    Thanks for any info!

    The T919 works out of the box, no additional kexts needed. It does require a spare USB header port on the motherboard.
    During my install, I had some crashes but moved the card to a different PCI slot and that seemed to make it happy.

    One last question - as I don't want to buy the wrong thing again :) - but the T919 works on Sierra?

    Well sometimes just doing nothing seems to work. I didn't do any patching or scripting. I noticed my iPhone tethering option showed up and it worked. I then enabled handoff in system preference and it worked. I guess just getting the Fenvi PCI card is enough and no additional configuration is needed.

    The FV-T919A works yes. Should be around $60.
