Just to add to what @Chris_B has said.

 

With the size restrictions of the Apple Watch, it's impossible to include the chip/chip set that the iPhone has in it, that allows the iPhone to work on the different frequency bands that the worldwide networks use. So with the Apple Watch, the cellular will only work from within the Country it was purchased in.

@A1rod  because it only works in the UK.  It’s never been able to work outside the UK and how would you enable roaming on it ?
