What's the difference between the Apple Watch GPS model and GPS + Cellular model?

Apple Watch models with GPS use the network connection of your nearby iPhone to make and receive calls and texts. The built-in GPS works independently of your iPhone to map distance, pace and routes during workouts.

Apple Watch models with GPS + Cellular have an eSIM, so you can connect to the Spark mobile network. This means you don’t need to be in range of your iPhone to make or receive calls or texts, or to use data to browse the internet. 

You'll need an eligible Spark Pay Monthly or Business mobile plan, plus the new $12.99 One Number Wearable Plan. 

If I bought my Apple Watch overseas, will it work in NZ?​

Some models of overseas Apple Watches will work with Spark's network. Models from the North American region aren't supported. Learn more about bands, supported locations and carriers at apple.com/nz/watch/cellular

Are emergency calls supported on the Apple Watch?

Yes, emergency calling will work on Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) if you have an active One Number Wearable Plan, or are in Bluetooth range of your iPhone and can connect to a WiFi network. The watch will call using your primary mobile number.
