Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular version has officially been opened for pre-orders by iStore.
The GPS + Cellular version includes built-in eSIM (embedded SIM) support, which allows the smartwatch to connect to mobile networks and and use mobile data without the need to connect to a smartphone allowing users to make phone calls, send messages and stream music directly from their watch.
At the moment, the eSIM functionality will be available exclusively on Vodacom’s network.
Vodacom’s eSIM service (OneNumber) allows customers to use the same number as on their smartphones which use a physical SIM. This eSIM service will cost you an additional R25 per month.
