Apple Smart Watch Help Needed

I am not buying one but I know someone who is and is confused with one thing.

Does an Apple Smart Watch require a SIM card before it will fully work or can it pair with an iPhone and work fully using the phone's data.

The person has an iPhone.

No it doesn't require a SIM and pairs with an iPhone, although they do sell a version with cellular connectivity that can be used as a more standalone device.

 

 

 

Either way it's overpriced, gimmicky and largely pointless though...

The cellular one currently only works on EE and would cost an extra £5 a month as well.

I have an Apple Watch and it uses data from the phone, connects via Bluetooth.
