Stay connected when you’re away from your phone.

Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular lets you make a call, send a text, and stream music — all without your phone. To cover the LTE and UMTS bands used around the world, there are three separate cellular models, each tailored to the locale where it is sold.1 There is no single model that supports roaming worldwide. To see which networks in your country or region offer cellular service for Apple Watch, refer to the chart below.2

Check with your carrier to see if your iPhone plan is eligible for Apple Watch cellular service. If you have an enterprise or corporate cellular service plan, check with your company or carrier to see if they support this feature. Pre–paid accounts and some older accounts aren’t currently supported. To activate cellular service on new carrier networks, customers first need to update iPhone to iOS 11.3 and it is recommended customers also update Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) to watchOS 4.2.
