Vodafone Idea has finally begun offering cellular services for the Apple Watch (GPS and Cellular) starting from today. This means that Vodafone customers can now use on number between the Apple Watch and the iPhone and leave the phone behind if they wish and just use the Apple Watch for messages, calls etc.

With cellular functions, Vodafone users who have the Apple Watch can now stay connected and use most functions that would otherwise need support from the iPhone, without using the phone now.

Clearly, Vodafone Idea is one of the last telecom service providers to get this support since the likes of Airtel and Jio have had it for a while now.
