Talking to your friend on your Watch can now be a thing

Singtel has announced that it will start carrying the cellular version of the Apple Watch in February.

Time to talk Watch

This will make Singtel the only telco in Singapore to offer support for this Apple Watch Series 3.

How does it work? Via a new Singtel service called NumberShare, your local telco line will be effectively extended to your Apple Watch, which has GPS and cellular functions built in.

All you need is an iPhone 6 or later running at least iOS 11.2.5. Note that your watch must be purchased in Singapore though for the cellular functionality to work.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will be available at Singtel from 9 February, with the first three months of NumberShare subscription free. An extra 0.3GB of data will also be added onto your monthly plan. The full details for pricing had not been announced at press time.
