Apple Watch and e sim

Hi all.

First post and I don’t know much about tech.

Just got the iPhone 11 and was thinking about getting the Apple Watch. My question is do I need something named an e sim and if so does anyone know on a rough cost?

Re: Apple Watch and e sim

Hi @MrMike 

eSim is not compulsory for the phone but is required if you choose a cellular version of the watch.

They are free anyway, so don't worry about the cost.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)
