    I think that includes a watch on an installment plan?

    Fantastic but a couple months too late, I already got a series 3 from Vitality and only need to do a 30min walk 5 times a week to pay for it. I have a iPad and iPhone running out on o2 soon though so when series 5 comes out I'll go o2 and give my fiancé the series 3 to 'encourage' his walking.

    So your paying your watch off over 80+ months?

    You can choose to pay more up front and less per month.

    £730.00 upfront on the 44mm stainless steal results in £6.07 per month for data or you can pay them £20 upfront and then pay £25.50 a month for 3 years then £6.07 per month after that.

    I’m made up over this, I can finally tell EE where to shove it!

    Edit: I always buy my kit outright but hopefully I can just have a sim only w/Apple Watch data plan

    I’m interested if anyone can get that to work with o2 over the next 24 hours. My watch is from apple direct so I signed up to the airtime plan in the watch app and it is still stuck on “activating” with a spinning circle. O2 support said it’s because my phone and watch are not from o2 which is rubbish. Both are unlocked and my phone SIM is with o2 and supports WiFi calling.

    I’ve managed it. Works fine. Did take about an hour to ‘activate’

    Could be the activation system is working rather hard while more folks than they expected setup for the first time?

    So how much extra do you have to pay per month for the Apple Watch being cellular? I’ve got an iPhone X paying just under £40/month. I’ve got a S3 Watch. How much would I have to pay extra to have my S3 cellular please?

    I got mine to work. I had the spinning circle but I looked at the watch and it said it was connected to cellular data so I put my phone into flight mode and turned off WiFi on the watch to confirm the cellular was working. It is working. When I turned flight mode off and went back into the app it said connected. It took less than 5 minutes to activate.

    I have an iPhone from O2 and an Apple Watch from Apple.

    If you have your own Apple Watch, I.e you are not buying it on contract from O2 it’s free for the first 6 months and then £5 a month afterwards.

    I went on the O2 chat this morning. They are a bunch of numpties. I told them I had an unlocked Apple Watch from Apple and an iPhone from o2 and wanted a data plan for the Apple Watch they told me I had to buy an Apple Watch on contract from O2 to be able to use the Apple Watch on O2 and then proceeded to try and get me to get an Apple Watch on contract. I complained and said that you can get a data only plan on other networks. The numpty said he would go and check this out for me and then came back and said I could get a data only plan for my watch.

    I’ve got it set up now.

    That good you got it set up...I had it on mine but didn’t think was worth it as I always had my phone with me.

    I may reconsider now I go to gym a lot more.

    It’s free for 6 months so I’ll see if I find it useful. But even at £5 it’s not too much to pay even if I find it even a little bit useful.
