Apple Watch SIM only

Hi. Was wanting to know if O2 offer a sim only deal for Apple Watch. I am an o2 pay monthly customer with apple 8. I have bought an Apple Watch direct from Apple. I am aware other networks offer this but would prefer to remain with o2. Thanks

Re: Apple Watch SIM only

Hi @Lisaluu36 

I have just checked the shop and it doesn't  make it clear whether you can go sim only if you already have a watch. They are only showing customised plans.

Also the sim only plans don't show watches https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/sim-cards/sim-only-deals#deviceType=phone&contractLength=P12M

 

Your best bet is to give customer services a call and check with them Guide: How to find help & contact O2 

Best of luck and welcome to the forum Welcome

Yes you can just add a data plan to your watch.  Follow the setup routine on the watch to buy your plan.

Open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap on ‘Mobile Data’.

Then tap ‘Set up mobile data’. You’ll be prompted to sign in with your My O2 username and password.

Once you’ve signed in, select your Apple Watch plan. Follow the steps on the screen to set up your Apple Watch Airtime Plan.

It can take up to 24 hours to activate, but sometimes it might take a little longer.

To check if your new Airtime Plan is active, open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap on ‘Mobile Data’. In the ‘Data Plan’ section, if you see O2 with the word ‘activating’ then you’ll have to wait a little longer for set up to complete. If you see O2 with an orange ‘i’ next to it, then you’re all set up.

Re: Apple Watch SIM only

Hi @Lisaluu36 they do, if you follow the steps mentioned you should be shown a SIM only plan for Apple Watch in the app, it is currently £5 per month with the first 6 months free (this offer can change anytime though)
