    Hi All

    I live in the U.K. And I'm on the EE network a friends has offered to send me an LTE Apple Watch over from the US. Will any of the US models work over here if so should I specify ATT or TMobile ect?

    Thanks in advance

    I do not think it will work. When purchasing you do not need to specify a carrier. You just buy the watch and then connect to your carrier.

    It might not have the right LTE band support.

    EE runs on bands 1, 3, 7 so by looking at Apple's chart, no.

    Depends if they get caught. If you do its customs charges, import duty and vat.

    Each region has different model numbers if you look closely.

    There are three. Americas, China, and Europe/Asia Pacific.
