Following today’s announcements for the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE and Family Setup, Verizon makes it a little less expensive to use an Apple Watch on the Big Red network.
Today, Verizon confirmed that it is lowering the cost of using a mobile-connected smartwatch on the network. Before, each line cost $ 20 per month for access. But now the wireless operator is cutting costs by half, so it only costs $ 10 per month. This is for all smartwatches, and it is available for all floor types.
You can pre-order the Apple Watch Series 6 (starting at $ 499 with LTE connectivity) and the Apple Watch SE (starting at $ 329 with LTE connectivity) right now from the Apple website. Verizon also confirmed today that both the new smartwatches will be available for order from the wireless operator from Friday 18. September 2020.
The time here is good news. Not just because of the new Apple Watches, but also because of the Family Setup feature. With this, multiple Apple watches can be paired to a single iPhone. This is a great option for parents with children, or people who want to get an Apple Watch for an older adult.
The caveat here is that every Apple Watch enabled with Family Setup must be a mobile-connected smartwatch. It can not be one with only GPS inside. But the feature supports Apple Watches as far back as Series 4. In addition, each Apple Watch gets its own phone number, so line activation is required. And making it a little cheaper is good news.
