Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS/Cellular)

Hi Everyone,

 

Just picked up my New Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS/Cellular) – just looking for recommendations (before I activate sim) from any users who have activated the Digital Sim & used their watch with this option... is it worth it? what is the call quality like? benefits?

 

Thanks Heaps Cat Very Happy

Re: Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS/Cellular)

I speak only from third party reports.

 

Battery drain is significant while using it.

Pricey: $5 a month is just another cost to add to your range of monthly subscriptions (+ you spend another $100 on the watch itself for the option). 

Do you have ear buds already? Or can you try them in an apple store. You could test out audio quality that way...

 

That said its a fun gizmo and if you really want to try it out and have the money then why not I suppose?

 

Regards

@mrPOVO, nothing wrong with giving it whirl (especially if it's free of charge). Number share can be added or removed at any time during your contract. If things don't work out, you can always contact us to have your number share profile deactivated.

Just googled it myself and you get info about... William Tracy. Think I was too clever for my own good. Was actually referencing D1CK Tracy (but Optus won't let you cause it's a rude name. Known for his communicator wrist watch in the 60's
