Apple introduced Family Setup in watchOS 71, bringing the communication, health, fitness, and safety features of Apple Watch to kids and older family members of the household who do not have an iPhone.
For the first time, Apple Watch can be set up through a parent’s iPhone, so kids can enjoy its fun and useful tools while parents have peace of mind knowing they can reach their child and identify their location, and that all personal data stays securely encrypted.
Kids and older family members using Family Setup will have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. Family Setup will be available with watchOS 7 and iOS 14, and requires cellular models of Apple Watch Series 4 or later or Apple Watch SE, paired with iPhone 6s or later.

Designed specifically for the needs of the Apple Watch customer, customers can expect no hidden costs and one flat fee. This makes Truphone’s cellular plans for Apple Watch especially appealing for those who want to get started with Family Setup.
Every plan comes with a 7-day free trial per Apple Watch, which includes unlimited data, voice minutes and SMS, and a separate phone number for each Apple Watch. It also offers fast 4G data speeds and voice calls with no lock-in contract. Truphone makes the experience of connecting multiple Apple Watches through your iPhone as simple and seamless as possible.
