After struggling to get any straight answers from Vodafone, a Spark representative (Te Awamutu store) advised me that Spark have a 6 month exclusive contract (to enable Apple Watch Support) that expires at the end of March 2020. She wasn't clear on what this exclusive contract was for (e-Sim or some other enabling technology/licence), but she was adamant that no other competitor would be able to offer Apple Watch (e-sim?) support until after March 2020. The facts are a bit sketchy, but it's more "information" than Vodafone have offered.

I wonder if this had been delayed due to Covid19?

The website still says Mid 2020.

Where did you find out about the timeline change ?

I moved my whole family to spark at Christmas. I had been with voda for over 20 years and now with spark. I have to admit I get better coverage now that I am with spark as well

Vodafone used to be a leader in the new technology now they only seem to be playing catch up and are getting further behind all the time
