Scandinavia offers free months' connectivity with Apple Watch Series 3

The Apple Watch Series 3 was launched with a big splash a year ago as it was the first one to support LTE connectivity and break free of the iPhone.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked telecom major Bharti Airtel to file response on a contempt plea moved by rival Reliance Jio, alleging that Bharti's campaign for IPL violates the previous order. For instance, Airtel divested 83 million shares of Bharti Infratel for Rs 3,325 crore through secondary share sale past year.

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio, which debuted in September 2016, has signed up a staggering 168 million subscribers by offering affordable data and free calls (and ploughing billions of dollars into the infrastructure and network that transmits them). In order to activate cellular service in the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE, users will have to get their iPhone updated to at least iOS 11.3 and their Apple Watch to watchOS 4.

The pricing of the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular is yet to be revealed. And also, Apple Watch will also be able to help diabetic people to keep a tab on their health via connected blood sugar monitor. Reliance Jio announced the same dates, that is, the pre-registrations kicking off on 4 May, and the sale starting on 11 May.

Reliance Jio also announced the availability of the JioEverywhereConnect service, which enables you to make use of the same Jio number on both your Apple iPhone and the Apple Watch.

Jio says users will be able to answer the incoming call on either the iPhone or Apple Watch 3 (GPS+Cellular) as both the devices will show the incoming call at the same time. The company is extending the e-SIM option to its prepaid and postpaid customers. It said an Apple Watch connection costs SEK 99 per month, but connectivity will be free for the first six months. Be that as it may, this won't work amid International Roaming.

Once part of Jio Everywhere Connect, what happens when a user receives a call is on their Jio number if I have Jio Everywhere Connect?

This is because the eSIM in the Apple Watch allows the user to retain the same cellular number as the one on their iPhone. Jio says the number used on the iPhone and the Apple Watch Series 3 will be the same.
