    Hi all,

    I am off to the states next week and was planning on picking up the new Apple Watch 3 with LTE and was wondering if it would work in the UK? I'm currently with O2 so will wait for them to enable the Watch 3. Appreciate if anybody knows the answer to this.

    Thanks!

    Nope. This is widely publicised. LTE is per country.

    It is not a LTE model per country. The Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) comes in three regional models – Americas, China, and Europe/Asia Pacific. Unlike the iPhone, there isn't a worldwide Apple Watch Series 3 model that supports all cellular bands used globally, so it isn't possible for Apple Watch to roam.

    Here is the cellular information from Apple. https://www.apple.com/watch/cellular/

    if I purchased the non LTE model in the USA that would work fine in the UK, correct?
