I was told by a o2 colleague in store this won’t not be possible and would need to buy the watch from o2 for the cellular feature to work properly as o2 can’t provide Esims for Apple Watches.
Does any know if it is possible

Yes you can buy an Apple Watch from Apple and connect it to your O2 plan. Assuming you have an iPhone and are on the iData bolt on, when you open the Apple Watch app it should prompt you to join O2 and add it on to your existing plan (currently its an extra £5 per month)

Yes I have a iPhone, how would I check if i am on a i data bolt on
So with the additional £5 a month charge I could use my monthly sims data, mins and texts via my watch without having to have my iPhone in close proximity.

Yes, you just follow the setup routine from the watch app on your iPhone.
In the mobile data section, just login with your O2 account details and confirm you want to add the data plan.
If you have visual voicemail working on your iPhone it confirms that you have the iData bolt on, if not, customer service can add it for you Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support

Normal SMS messages rely on your phone to be on (even if not with you) for them to be received on your watch
