Leading network carrier Airtel and also the newest entrant Reliance Jio have announced to offer Apple Watch Series 3 (LTE+GPS) in India. The product will be available in stores from May 11, 2018, Times Now has learnt. The service allows users to "make calls, use Internet and apps" at no extra cost.

And, the telco has also announced "JioEverywhereConnect" service that allows the customers to have the same Jio phone number both on their iPhone as well as the Watch Series 3 Cellular.
