IDEMIA, the global provider of Augmented Identity, has been selected by SK Telecom, the number one telecommunication operator in South Korea, to launch the first eSIM Connected watch based on GSMA Consumer standards, the company said.

As a actor in the telecom field, IDEMIA is at the forefront of the digital revolution and is committed to bringing protected and convenient experiences to mobile operator customers. Leveraging its industrial leadership and appetite for innovation, IDEMIA will be providing SK Telecom its GSMA compliant solution.

Based on IDEMIA´s Smart Connect Subscription management solution also known as remote SIM provisioning, the technology remotely connects the eSIM of the smart watch to the SK Telecom´s network without inserting a physical SIM card.
