Apple Watch Cellular Models Now Available in Portugal, NOS Exclusive Provider

Apple has begun selling the Apple Watch models with cellular connectivity in Portugal for the first time.

applewatchseries6design
Apple Watch Series 6 and SE models with cellular connectivity went on sale in the country on Tuesday, December 8, and can be ordered on Apple's regional online store.

Cellular models are available in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium variants, but Watch Edition and Hermès LTE versions are currently unavailable.

As of now, Portuguese provider NOS is the first and only provider to support the Apple Watch LTE feature in the country. Apple has yet to update its regional Apple Watch cellular service list to reflect the launch.

Apple has been working to bring Apple Watch Cellular models to more European countries, with Belgium recently joining the LTE Apple Watch club. Ireland, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg are countries still waiting for the feature to arrive.

(Thanks, Ricardo!)

Long overdue. Apple really needs to up their rollout schedules and be a lot more rigourous in rolling out services. Apple Watch cellular, ECG app, Apple News, Apple One etc are all so limited to just the US/UK/AUS basically. I get some of them require regulatory approval, but apple really needs to get those approval much quicker

At last!

These past two years have been great as more and more features become available in the country, such as Apple Pay (2019), TV providers offering Apple TV 4K bundles (2019), and now Cellular on the Apple Watch.

Next, the HomePod/HomePod mini and Siri in Portuguese from Portugal, please. And Apple Card!
Opening a new store in central Lisbon would be great too.

Well - it might be time to allow for Apple Watch Roaming - at least inside of Europe.
Once we are all vaccinated, we might want to travel again :)
