Good news for watch holders Apple and customers of O2, as the company recently announced that it will launch the eSIM for the Apple Watch throughout the month of October, adding to the rest of the operators already offered this compatibility.
Yes, O2 is the last to have the eSIM for the smart watch from the company of the apple, but it is not the first, since other operators known as Movistar, Vodafone and even Orange did offer this possibility for some time
You have to clarify that Pepephone also has it, but unlike other companies, compatibility only available for mobile, so if you are a user of that operator, you will not be able to use the eSIM in the Apple Watch.
What is the eSIM?
The eSIM is basically a virtual SIM card brought by the devices already inside without the possibility of removing it as is the case with the physical SIM that everyone knows. Being of this type, it offers a series of advantages over the SIM of a lifetime.
The eSIM, being a electronic component over the mobile, allows you to dispense with the classic SIM trays and also saves space, because they are very small, hence they fit perfectly in a smart watch or other devices.
One of the most important advantages is that lportability between operators will be easier, no new SIM will be necessary, as it will be enough to inform the operator of the code of your eSIM so that such portability can be realized with the new operator.
In the case of O2, the date of availability has been disclosed by the operator itself in its account Twitter official in response to a specific user's question, but has not given more details of its price or availability exact.
That means we will have to wait at least a couple of weeks to learn more about the conditions of hiring of the eSIM with O2, from then on, all the details will be revealed for customers who wish to hire it.
We remember that the eSIM is compatible with Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 5, the latter will go on sale on September 20, although it is also available for the Watch Series 4 that currently no longer sells it Apple in its official online store.
Therefore, if you have a Apple Watch and you have O2, you must wait until October to have the eSIM, from there you will have to look at the conditions and prices to see if you find it interesting and hire it.
