There’s some good news for fans of Apple products who also happen to be on the Vodacom network – the Apple Watch Series 5 lands at Vodacom on 22nd May.

While the product is available for pre-order through the iStore as well, Vodacom is offering customers the ability to share their primary cell number with the watch thanks to Apple’s eSim technology which is baked into the wearable.

This functionality is made possible with Vodacom’s OneNumber service.

Vodacom has outlined pricing for the Apple Watch Series 5 and prices include three months VAS and the once-off connection fee of R98 will be waived.

We say that like its a bonus but when you see the price of the wearables you’ll understand that waiving a R98 fee is the least the operator could do.

Pricing for each iteration of the watch is outlined below:

  • Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular 40mm – R12 699
  • Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular 44mm – R13 499
  • Apple Watch Nike Series 5 GPS + Cellular 44mm – R13 499

Vodacom is also advertising the Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm, GPS and cellular) for R7 599 and the Apple Watch Nike Series 3 (42mm, GPS and cellular) for R8 359 under the same deal.

All of these deals can be found over on the Vodacom website.
