Starting on February 2, the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular connectivity will be available for purchase in Singapore and Hong Kong, according to updated information shared on Apple’s Singapore and Hong Kong websites.
Customers in Singapore and Hong Kong will be able to place orders for the cellular Apple Watch starting on February 2, with those orders set to arrive on February 9, the official launch date for the device.
Pricing on the LTE Apple Watch Series 3 will start at S$598 in Singapore and HK$3,188 in Hong Kong. Apple’s site in both countries does appear to be listing incorrect prices at the current time, though, with a S$598/HK$3,188 starting price listed on the main Apple Watch page and S$498/HK$2,688, the price of the 38mm GPS only model, listed on individual product pages. Pricing is likely to be updated before the device goes on sale.
In Singapore, the cellular Apple Watch will be available with Singtel service, and in Hong Kong, both 1O1O and csl3 will support it.
The Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular connectivity is already available in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, and the UK. In other countries, only Apple Watch Series 3 models with GPS are available for purchase.
It was available in China at launch, but one week after launch, carriers in China stopped offering the cellular version of the device, likely due its usage of an eSIM, a new technology in the country, and government security concerns.
