What makes the GPS+ Cellular different from the GPS (only) Apple Watch Series 3 is that it supports a built-in embedded SIM (eSIM) which enables network connectivity. "Industry revenues were further adversely impacted this quarter due to the reduction in global termination rates", Gopal Vittal, managing director and chief executive of (India and South Asia) at Bharti Airtel, said in a statement. The new service will be available to the iPhone users at no extra cost. Apple series 3 watch can be "Pre-order" from Jio official website and customers can also purchase at Jio stores from 11 may.

Similarly, users looking to pair the Cellular variant of the Apple Watch Series 3 with their Airtel number will have to open up the Watch app and pair the wearable to the mobile number. The Apple Watch Series 3 LTE is compatible with any iPhone 6s or higher.

Reliance Jio had approached the Delhi High Court with a plea stating that the Airtel advertisement, which allegedly offered "live and free " access to Twenty-Twenty cricket coverage, was deliberately deceptive, misrepresenting and misleading. However, we do know that the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE will be available for pre-booking from May 4 and will go on sale from May 11. The company will also be allowing users to use the same number on both their smartphones and the Apple Watch 3. And also, Apple Watch will also be able to help diabetic people to keep a tab on their health via connected blood sugar monitor. Customers wishing to activate their mobile connection with the new watch must first update their iPhone to iOS 11.3 and have watchOS 4.3 running. Reliance Jio has announced a special service, called "JioEverywhereConnect", which will enables its subscribers to use the same Jio number on both iPhone and Apple Watch Series 3 - with Global Positioning System and cellular, according to the Reliance Jio website. Be that as it may, this won't work amid International Roaming. What's more interesting is the fact that the Apple Watch Series 3 shares the same number as on your iPhone.

Telecom operators, already reeling from a fierce price war that started with the entry of Reliance Jio in September 2016, were hit hard in the December quarter after the telecom regulator's decision to slash interconnection usage charges (IUC) levied by mobile networks handling incoming calls from rival networks. Jio says the number used on the iPhone and the Apple Watch Series 3 will be the same.
