Apple originally released the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular back in September, but because of the carrier requirements, cellular connectivity was only supported in a handful of countries. Apple today announced, however, that Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular is coming to two new locations next month…
Apple has updated its website in Singapore and Hong Kong to announce that the Apple Watch with cellular will be available for preorder on February 2nd. The first orders will arrive to customers one week later on February 9th.
In Singapore, the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE will start at S$598, while customers in Hong Kong will pay HK$3,188. As for carrier support, Hong Kong customers will have their choice between 1O1O and csl3.
Channel News Asia notes that Singtel will be the first carrier to offer customers in Singapore support for the LTE Apple Watch. Pricing is unclear at this point, but customers in Singapore will receive the same free three months of cellular that have been offered in other countries.
With the additions of Singapore and Hong Kong, the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE is now available in 12 regions around the world. In other countries, however, the device is limited to GPS connectivity. Those are:
Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Australia, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the UK.
If you’re located in Singapore or Hong Kong, let us know down in the comments if you’ll be picking up the LTE Apple Watch next month.
