Apple Watch Series 4 models with LTE are set to launch in Poland on April 12, with online pre-orders beginning April 5.

Apple revealed the dates on its Polish website, but it has yet to add the cellular models to its online store in the country, so pricing remains to be seen. Orange has confirmed it will offer cellular service for the Apple Watch in Poland.

Apple Watch Series 4 models with LTE are already available in over two dozen countries around the world.

(Thanks, Piotr!)

Also great, but it's a shame it's only that second-rate carrier for now.

This is great news! Kudos to Orange Poland. Unfortunately T-Mobile Poland is still neglecting customers and didn’t introduce eSIM support even tough T-Mobile Czech is supporting it for a quite time now.

The only thing we’re missing is ECG and Polish Siri + Polish Dictonaries.

For any country were the LTE models aren't for sale, are the stainless steel models unavailable considering all of those have LTE across the board?

Speaking of which, the carrier in Singapore, StarHub, has just offered eSIM for the Apple Watch, alongside with Singtel.

Yes. That was the case when my country hasn’t gotten (at least one) carrier that supports LTE/cellular for the Apple Watch.

During then, we were only being offered with GPS only models and they are just the Aluminium ones.

What takes them so long to make LTE on Apple Watch ubiquitous?
Carriers have to support eSIM. Carriers have to support contracts that tie two (e)SIMs to the same phone number. There may also be other technical aspects beyond eSIM support that make the Watch different from let's say a tablet with an eSIM.

Man that blows. When I worked in a more professional setting, having the stainless steel was awesome because hardly anyone noticed it as an Apple Watch.
