Planning to get apple watch (GPS+ Cellular) in the US.
will the cellular works in other country ?
In other words are these cellular versions "unlocked" to use in other countries?

Puerto Rico is America, but anyways; if you’ve traveled there you’ll know that you aren’t roaming since you haven’t left the country, just like visiting Hawaii or Alaska - Canada support is good to know.
I agree Puerto Rico is the US, but Apple feels the need to specify it on the link I posted.

Gotcha
[doublepost=1539204203][/doublepost]It is very bizarre how the bands are so that the entire rest of the world is on a different model of the watch - I wonder if this must be what prevents the watch from roaming when traveling abroad. And yea didn’t look at the link prior - weird how Puerto Rico is listed differently and how only the carriers in the USA portion are hyperlinked.

I switched out .com in the link with .uk and it brought up the page for United Kingdom.

The UK providers were hyperlinked on that page, but Puerto Rico is still it's own country.
