The new Apple Watch will not be able to connect to mobile networks when abroad, it has emerged.

The key feature of Apple’s Series 3 smartwatch, which was unveiled last week, is an independent 4G modem that allows owners to receive phone calls and text messages, and stream music, when they do not have their phone with them.

The feature is likely to be a boost for runners who leave their phone at home, or when a battery dies. However, it has emerged it will only connect to networks in the country it was bought from.
