Spark are supporting calling and texting drect to/from the watch without your phone nearby - supporting compatible series 3, 4 and 5 cellular watches - the following from Spaks website

"Share your mobile number with your Apple Watch with One Number from Spark.

Make calls and texts straight from your watch without your phone nearby – stay connected wherever you are.

For just $12.99 a month, the One Number Wearable Plan lets you share your primary plan’s minutes and texts and get unlimited data* on the watch. So you never have to worry about running out.

Plus, sign up before 6 June 2020 and you’ll get the first three months of your plan on us."

Apple NZ (Online) and Spark are now taking pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 5 GPS + Cellular (Delivers 13 Dec 2019). Spark are now offering e-Sim support, and are consequently the ONLY operators who support the cellular Apple Watch in New Zealand. I will be changing mobile providers as Vodafone have had long enough to get their act together.

I wonder if they'll support calling with the watch or just the usual iMessage and FaceTime.

Spark are definately supporting full cellular functionality, so you get calls, messaging, and data without needing an iPhone. The serives currently costs $12.99 / month. If you don't subscribe to the service, then your Apple Watch will function like any other non-cellualr Apple Watch, however emergency phone calls from ANY Celluar Apple Watch (without an iPhone) will work regardless of whether or not you subscribe.
