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.

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.
