LTE version can be used as a standalone device as long as you activate the esim function with telco.
Noted on that and also the uncertainty of local LTE support in future.
Quick question: can the LTE watch work via Wifi (even w/o the phone nearby).

Yeah can use wifi, but watch only supports 2.4Ghz. There is no wifi interface on watch, will need phone to pair the info with WATch first..

Tks for the info, so can the Apple watch tap on SG Wireless w/o nearby iPhone?

Cos on the iPhone basically a pre-set configuration is already done, thus when iPhone is near SG wireless hot spots, it automatically logs into the network.

cannot. Apple watch does not support wifi interfaces with captive portal. Wireless@SG uses captive portal, and that your iPhone can bypass it due to EAP-SIM authentication.

So moral of story, it won't work on wireless@sg..

I previously posted in wrong thread, the AW3 LTE thread
Lazada having 12.12 sale, but currently OOS.
Maybe u can monitor to see when restocking.

AW3

42mm $498

Voucher or Citi Bank Card got additonal discount.
If you are Liveup members 5% off rebate
Shopback also got rebate but I'm not sure of the percentage

Hey all, looking to get a 42mm series 3.
Any advice should i get it locally, in changi airport or in japan?
Japan seems to be quite cheap but then no idea is there any additional tax or something like GST.

Warranty wise should be international if I purchase apple care right?

Hello! Anybody know any ways for me to setup my Apple Watch without updating my iphone to iOS11? Currently on iOS 10 and I love it a lot. Hate the user experience in iOS 11 as I have to do a few steps to off my wifi etc whereas iOS 10, I just have to do it in the control center.

Try slide from bottom up to lift shortcut menu. There is a WIFI on/off on TOP right side

The stainless steel edition only comes with GPS+cellullar. Considering that none of the Singapore Telcos has no ETA offering cellular support for local versions of the Apple Watch 3, there is really no way to know for sure when the stainless steel will be available in Singapore.

Thanks. So I guess is either import or purchase it from overseas.
