Launching tomorrow November 1st.
eSIM support for the Apple Watch is now coming to Du, more than a year after it has arrived for Etisalat users. Du is celebrating the launch with the release of the Apple Watch Series 5 with cellular that will come with a free six-month trial that normally costs 25 AED per month.
“By introducing the latest Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular), we are proud to be enabling du customers to lead on-the-go lifestyles with an innovative and intuitive device that empowers them to take control of their lives across connectivity, fitness and health,” Fahad Al Hassawi, Deputy CEO – Telco Services, EITC, said in a statement.
