Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka’s premier connectivity provider, extended eSIM support for Apple Watch Cellular Models thereby enabling Apple Watch users to stay connected, even while they are away from their phones.

The eSIM service enables Apple Watch (Cellular) users to make calls, send texts, and so much more, even without an iPhone nearby. Dialog, the first in Sri Lanka to offer eSIM services for Apple Watches is also the only authorised eSIM service provider for iPhones and the first and only network to offer Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi or WiFi Calling) and VoLTE (Voice over LTE) in Sri Lanka.

Commenting, Lasantha Theverapperuma, Group Chief Operating Officer of Dialog Axiata PLC said, “We are pleased to extend eSIM support for Apple Watches, transforming the way people will use their wearables while providing them with a new sense of freedom – to stay connected with or without their iPhone nearby. We at Dialog remain committed to enriching Sri Lankan lives by delivering the very latest and best in Technology.”

Apple Watch, GPS + Cellular Series 3 and above global versions (Europe and Asia Pacific) supports e-SIM with Dialog (excluding US region models) including models ranging from the all-new Apple Watch Series 7, Watch SE, Watch 6, Watch 5, Watch 4, and Watch 3. The iPhone pairing with the Apple Watch needs to be an iPhone 6s or newer using the recently released software update of iOS 15.1 and the Apple Watch will also need to be upgraded to WatchOS 8.0.
