Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular variant is set to launch in India this month as Apple has partnered with Reliance Jio and Airtel to create the wearable to users in the country. With announcements made late last month, the GPS + Cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3 has become up for pre-orders on Airtel’s online shop, as well as across Jio.com, Reliance Digital stores, and Jio stores. It is likely to be made available to buy, from the above mentioned mentioned outlets, starting May 11.
The Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular pre-booking pages on both Airtel’s and Jio’s websites are now actually live. To register on Airtel, users have to input their Airtel mobile numbers to be able to get exclusive invites on May 11. On one other hand, Jio requires your pin-code to verify delivery parameters for the Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular variant. To recall, Jio customers that pre-book the wearable before May 11 is likely to be entitled to free first day home delivery. Add to that particular, the Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular will continue to work without additional charge for both Jio prepaid and postpaid connections, and only on Airtel’s postpaid Infinity plans on Airtel.
