    If you don't sign up for cellular can you still use the apple watch? Reason I'm asking is because I want the SS and could care less about the cellular.

    I Believe you have the option of toggling LTE on or off. At least that's what I have been reading from other reports.

    Yes it will work just like any Apple Watch. You don't have to subscribe to a cell plan for it to work.

    When you first pair your watch to an iPhone, there is now a step to activate the LTE feature. You can skip this step and activate LTE at a later time or not at all.

    Note: If you purchase on an installment plan, you are required to activate service and keep it active for the duration of the installment plan.

    How does it work if I want to activate it in say 7 months or so?

    Open the Watch app on your iPhone and go thru the LTE setup. It will be under General in the Watch app.

    You might not get the 3 free months and the Activation credit, so it has an opportunity cost of ~$55 here in the US.

    Each carrier has fine print, deals, etc... You should really ask your carrier about the fine details.
