Commenting on this announcement, Sherry Zameer, SVP IOT for CISMEA at Gemalto, an Apple SIM qualified supplier, gave a quick overview of the 3 points that show why the new version of the Apple Watch is a game changer in the wearables category and how it will smooth and improve the end-user experience:

 

  • The eSIM: What is it? To make it short this is like a classic SIM but totally integrated by Apple in the device, so not removable and still playing its role in terms of security. This is the top of the convenience, Apple has thought of everything and has simplified your journey to get instant 4G connectivity. There’s no need to carry your phone around anymore to have your iWatch connected – the embedded SIM and the online download of mobile subscription do the job for you. You possess an autonomous connected watch!

 

  • Your mobile subscription: It is all is simple and easy as dedicated services exist to download your subscription securely in the eSIM of your watch, and you keep the same phone number. Your new connectivity can then be managed remotely according to your wish and your operator offers. This service is called the On-Demand Connectivity. A “super-flexible” solution enabling tailor-made connectivity.

 

  • The access to a wide range of applications: The first Apple watch was launched three years ago, and since then the ecosystem has developed fast, applications have been multiplied, and a lot of partnerships have been built to enable always more innovative experiences. With the Series 3 watches, the innovation is in the “acquired independence” of the cellular connectivity and the “permanence” of its connectivity. This allows a constant streaming of services which is ideal for music or health applications for instance – you can jog and have your online coach improving your run in real time, you can listen to your playlist in streaming, or have a constant follow-up for your health monitoring and tracking.

 

This new generation of wearables is fully in line with the consumer trend of the “always connected” need. With wearable, there is a promise of an always improved autonomous connected mobility. For Middle Eastern consumers will still have to wait before they fully enjoy the latest generations of connected devices based on the eSIM technology.
