Batelco, the leading digital solutions provider in the Kingdom announced that it is the first and only telecommunications company in the Kingdom to introduce the latest Apple Watch Series 5 Cellular at a launch event which took place at the Batelco branch in The Avenues Bahrain. The fun and interactive event was attended by a large number of attendees led by Batelco customers who received their new watches. Also present at the event were several social media influencers including Shaima Rahimi, Ali Sabeel and athlete Shaikha Al Shaiba.

Batelco launched the Apple Watch in both the 40mm and 44mm sizes and in various colours.
