Apple Watch GPS + Cellular

Stay connected when you’re away from your phone.

Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE cellular models with an active service plan allow you to make calls, send texts and so much more — all without your iPhone. You can even complete a call to emergency services when you’re travelling abroad just by pressing and holding the side button.1 And now with Family Setup, members of your family who don’t own an iPhone can use Apple Watch.

Mobile service support.

To cover the LTE and UMTS bands used around the world, there are two separate cellular models for Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch SE. They have been optimised for use in the country or region of purchase, and not all models work in all countries or regions. There is no single model that supports mobile service worldwide. To see which carriers in your country or region offer mobile service for Apple Watch, refer to the chart below.2

Family Setup support.

Family Setup allows you to use your iPhone to set up an Apple Watch for kids or older adults in your household. The watch can then be used with its own phone number and account. The provider’s mobile service lets you connect your family member’s watch to the mobile network with its own service plan, so the family member can stay connected even without your iPhone nearby. To see which carriers support Family Setup for GPS + Cellular models of Apple Watch Series 4 or later, refer to the chart below.

Check with your carrier to see if your iPhone plan is eligible for Apple Watch mobile service. If you have an enterprise or corporate mobile service plan, check with your company or carrier to see if they support this feature. Prepaid accounts and some older accounts may not be supported.
