Re: O2 Apple Watch Support

Apple watch 3 requires an e-sim to fully function and only the EE network in the UK support that fully.
It will still work with your O2 phone but not to its full extent.

Re: O2 Apple Watch Support

It's purely down to the network investing in the technology.
I assume O2 don't feel they would get a payback on investment by selling it to enough customers.
