Telecom services provider Vodafone Idea will begin offering cellular service for Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) starting from June 12, 2020, i.e. today. Customers will now have the freedom to leave their phone behind and stay connected with just their Apple Watch. Vodafone customers can now use One Mobile Number Service for their Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) and iPhone.
This service has currently been made available for Vodafone postpaid customers, including Enterprise Postpaid, in select circles (Mumbai, Delhi, Gujarat) from today. Services will continue to be expanded to additional circles in the coming weeks.
Whether users are out for a run, at the pool or just trying to be more active throughout their day, Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) with Vodafone Idea will allow them to stay connected, make calls and stream Apple Music, even without an iPhone nearby.
Speaking about the development, Avneesh Khosla, Director – Marketing, Vodafone Idea Ltd, said, “Consumers today are increasingly moving towards having connected products in their lives. With the launch of cellular support for Apple Watch we are enabling our customers to connect their Apple Watch to their iPhone using the same / existing mobile number and enjoy the freedom of using their Apple Watch independently to stay connected.”
