    Cheapest Apple Watch mobile data plan

    Hi Geo

    I am considering getting an apple watch. I haven't used the esim before.

    I currently have a Smartone 2 year plan and various Birdie month to month plans.

    What are the cheapest options for having cell data for an apple watch?

    Thanks!

    If you have a smartone plan now, you should be able to just add the Apple Watch eSim function for 18 HKD on your existing contract.

    As far as I know, you do need a contract for apple watch (no prepaid), and the providers in HK are 3, Smartone, CSL and CMHK. 3, Smartone and CSL charge 18HKD monthly as add on to an existing contract. CMHK does offer the eSIM for existing customers for free.

    I also have a Smartone contract with Apple watch.

    It's not possible to get a stand alone contract. It's always tied to your iPhone contract.

    When did Smartone release e-sim for iWatch? When I got my watch they didn't have them.

    Maybe depends on your plan? Could be that it only works for currently offered plans?

    The apple announcement today re "family mode" for the Apple Watch confirmed that you'll be able to buy sim contracts without an iPhone. You'll just need to wait for the fax machines to work in Hong Kong so they know what to do. But new watches go on sale Friday...
    The only carrier I recognised for HK was 1010 (CSL).

    For whatever reason I think I saw on the Apple site that the family plan feature currently only works on CSL
