I think you are conflicting the 2?

Yes Singtel support esim. But there are reports suggesting that Apple Watch Series 3 LTE would only would in the country they are purchased in. So whether that’s true or not.

The bottom line: currently generation of Smart Watch with LTE (read Apple Watch 3 LTE and various Android LTE smart watches) squeezed to cover some LTE bands but not full-LTE bands due to size/power constraint

So different country, manufacturer makes an attempt to consider difference Network operators specific LTE bands, then tune the LTE band recipe by pick-mix the bands for that country.

Uhuh ok. That’s theoretical.

So the question now is can it work in SG?

I’m not sure whether pairing is it the same as Samsung S3 and will Singtel profile configuration suitable for Apple Watch LTE.

Signup tied with 12mths contract....otherwise can just get and try.

Singtel did mentioned currently only S3 compatible in SG.
Even if it works with Apple Watch LTE, dun think Singtel will announce officially cos Apple SG not supporting troubleshoot.

That’s not true. Apple doesn’t use the same eSIM technology as Gear s3 as far as I know. For aw3 LTE, both watch and phone have the same phone number whereas for gear s3 lte, the watch and phone have different numbers. Although in countries such as Korea, both watch and phone can have the same number but different Sim profile.

Ultimately it’s dependent on local telco to implement this set of different technology and how the pricing should be. You can get aw3 lte but you won’t be able to log on to local network at all because of th Sim profile mitigation issue.

Apple mentioned that aw3 can only work in the country you purchase because firstly, local telco dependent and that aw3 cannot support roaming. Same logic as to why there’s no interface for u to set up wifi on aw3 when it merely pulls info from your phone.

Those buying aw3 lte and hope it works on singtel or m1, the chances are very very very slim unless you’re in their beta programme, if any is ongoing..

High chance it doest work now..
If telco not supported yet..
But since all watches are unlocked if band is same with japan... when telco release it os should work...

I dont plan to use LTE for now also...
I just dont want to settle with local gps model with composite back and 8gb storage...

I prefer to have LTE model with ceramic back and 16gb storage and a sport loop band...


😂😂😂😂😂

good luck man. i'm pretty darn sure it wouldn't work with singtel.

Am using Japan LTE series 3 in Singapore without the LTE function.

Salesman told me that it will not work in Singapore unless the LTE band ends up being the same as listed on the website.

So it's a matter of luck

we have another member with japan LTE model also...
i think should function as normal GPS model now...

apple pay should not be a problem?

nope no insider info, my guess is that Apple would announce it alongside the iMac Pros. The stocks for these watches have stabilised anyway.

I'm playing chance by getting a Japanese AW SS because my SS 0 is about to give up on me anytime now
I highly doubt these watches are region-locked.

paid $700 for the nike 42mm LTE with sport loop.


i was thinking of the SS model... but it will cost around 1k

i considered GPS model... but it cost .. $550 + $75 sport loop band = $625

so i just took the LTE model at $700 ...
