Apple is launching the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE in at least four more countries next month. The company plans to launch the cellular version of the smartwatch in Denmark, Sweden, India, and Taiwan on May 11, with pre-orders starting on May 4.

Network operator "3" is currently the sole cellular provider option at the point of sale on Apple's Danish and Swedish websites, while regional operators Reliance Jio and Airtel appear to have exclusive rights to sell Apple Watch LTE models and provide cellular connectivity for customers in India.

As part of its LTE deal, Jio is offering a new JioEverywhereConnect service, which allows customers to use the same Jio number on both their iPhone and Apple Watch at no extra cost. Airtel is also offering a special introductory cellular trial. Customers can pre-order from either company in-store or online from May 4.

Apple Watch Series 3 models with LTE launched September 22 in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and the UK, with more countries to follow this year.

(Thanks Jonas, Martin, and Handlaren!)

Didn't realize Apple was still launching AW3 LTEs. I mean in a few months it will, hopefully, be time for AW4 -- hopefully something "all new," not just another chip change or comic book watch face.

People on MR tell us how awful U.S. carriers are and wonderful their non-U.S. carriers are but then it's overseas carriers that put up resistance to things like LTE capable watches. Truth is all carriers worldwide are horrible quasi-monopolies offering more valleys than peaks.

Well everything is in the eye of the beholder. 3 is my favourite company at the moment. Always first with stuff like this, visual voicemail, free roaming including data across much of the globe. Pretty great speed and coverage where I live and work. Can’t be anything but impressed
Agreed, I live 40 km north of Stockholm deep in the woods, and I use 3/Tre even as my main house internet connection with no problems, for streaming, gaming and so on. Excellent 4G coverage wherever I go. To be fair, their coverage map does get thin in the upper two thirds of the country, more so than the other providers, but the population density is really low there.

So maybe they are worse than the others, but I think for the majority they are good where it counts. Also, I think in Scandinavia we have it quite well in this regard anyway no matter the provider. Recently I was visiting family in Germany, and I was surprised at the poor reception with all available providers, and not just on the countryside, but even in bigger cities.
