Have you heard that the AppleWatch can be used to make and receive phone calls? It’s true, starting with the AppleWatch Series 3 which Apple introduced in September 2017. That said, there are a few details that one should be aware of.
First, you still need to have an iPhone with an active cellular service plan. This plan also needs to allow you to add a wearable device to it. Think of the AppleWatch as an accessory or add-on for the iPhone.
Second, you need to pay for cellular service for your AppleWatch. Prices vary but as of mid-2018 carriers like AT&T and Verizon typically charge $5 or $10 per month.
