Any support for Apple Watch - 2021?

Hi there, I'm out of contract with Plusnet and am totally happy with the service - except that I'm interested in getting an Apple Watch in future, one with mobile data, which only seems to be available with EE, Vodafone and O2. It's a pity to be thinking of leaving Plusnet for this but judging by older posts they just don't seem to support this. But I'd like to check first - there's nothing they can do re Apple Watch mobile connections? I know they use the EE network, they can't patch me over or something...?

cheers

As a PN are a budget provider I doubt it will happen anytime soon.
Saying that, the cellular watches aren't as good as all that to be honest, you'd be better off saving yourself a hundred quid Smiley
I've had a series 2,4,5 & 6 watches and found the wi-fi ones much better than then cellular. They're great devices though.

Hmm yeah as I feared, thanks. Out of interest, why did you find the cellular inferior - battery life presumably?

Battery life, doesn't support roaming and the switching cellular on could be a bit flakey.
