iOS 13 Beta Apple Watch won’t activate cellular service

I’ve been told by O2 Guru’s that my new Apple Watch won’t activate if I’m using iOS 13 Beta. If I revert to iOS 12 I will lose all my data. Has anyone else had this problem?

Any recommendations?

Thank you

Why will you lose your data?
But yes, it won't work on iOS13 beta although there is supposed to be a watch beta that will work with 13

@BFranks @Did you make a backup of your data before going on the iOS 13 beta? If you did then there shouldn’t be an issue

It will be backed up to iCloud anyway......

I was lucky that there was a 12.4 backup available, an iTunes backup would have been safer. For some reason I didn’t do one, should have known better 😊
