Safaricom does support eSIM for Apple Watch in Kenya. Here’s what you need to know:
Safaricom eSIM Support
Safaricom is a carrier in Kenya that offers eSIM support for compatible devices, including Apple Watch.
You can visit Safaricom Shops to purchase an eSIM or a supported device and follow the provided instructions to set up the eSIM on your Apple Watch.
eSIM Functionality on Apple Watch
With a cellular connection on your Apple Watch, you can make calls, reply to messages, receive notifications, and more, even when your iPhone is not nearby.
The eSIM allows you to activate a cellular plan from Safaricom without using a physical SIM card.
This means you can use your Apple Watch independently to stay connected.
Setting Up Safaricom eSIM on Apple Watch
To set up Safaricom eSIM on your Apple Watch, you can visit a Safaricom Shop with a supported device and scan the eSIM QR code provided by Safaricom.
Your device will download and install the eSIM settings for your Safaricom number, and the eSIM will be ready to use.
If you want to set up a cellular Apple Watch for a family member who doesn’t have their own iPhone, you may be able to use an alternative carrier if Safaricom supports the use of a managed Apple Watch.
However, if Safaricom doesn’t support cellular on a managed Apple Watch, you can set up cellular for your family member’s Apple Watch later by using the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
