Introducing the Series 3 Watch, Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer, said, "We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone". An Apple support representative told a MacRumors reader that an "Apple Watch purchased in the USA online store will only work with the four carriers in the United States".
