The eSIM technology for the Apple Watch has been around for a while. For the uninitiated, it gives the wearable standalone internet connectivity, so you can stay connected even if you’re away from your phone, even without WiFi.
However, Filipinos can’t take advantage of this feature due to network limitations — not until now. Check out the new ONENUMBER199 promo from Globe Telecom, which brings the eSIM technology to the Philippines.
This new offering is made specifically for the new Apple Watch Series 7 and the budget-friendly Apple Watch SE. Both of these models come in two variants: there’s the standard GPS-only, while the other comes with Cellular connectivity, which can take advantage of Globe’s eSIM product.
With eSIM, you can now do outdoor runs and rides and track your performance without having to carry a bulky smartphone. It also lets you stay connected via messaging apps and social media, receive and make calls, and play online songs on Spotify and other streaming services.
Using Globe’s eSIM ONENUMBER199 also means that I’d be using the same phone number and plan features from your main smartphone plan. That includes the allocation for texts, calls, and data consumption.
But as a bonus, those who would get the plan will get an extra 1GB of data to their plan.
The Globe ONENUMBER199 eSIM promo is only available for Globe Postpaid customers. As per the company’s website, they are working to bring the future to its Globe Prepaid and TM subscribers in the future.
Also, those who will get the service from December 14, 2021 to June 30, 2022 will get their first 6 months free.
