Apple Watch GPS + Cellular

Stay connected when you’re away from your phone.

Apple Watch Series 6 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 complete a call to emergency services when you’re travelling abroad just by pressing and holding the side button.1

Cellular service support.

To cover the LTE and UMTS bands used around the world, there are two separate cellular models for Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. They have been optimised for use in the country of purchase, and not all models work in all countries or regions. There is no single model that supports cellular service worldwide. To see which network providers in your country or region offer cellular service for Apple Watch, refer to the chart below.2

Check with your provider to see if your iPhone plan is eligible for Apple Watch cellular service. If you have a business or corporate mobile service plan, check with your employer or service provider to see if they support this feature. Pay-as-you-go accounts and some older accounts may not be supported.
