    1. Take your smartphone, your Galaxy Watch, and the original packaging to a Sunrise shop near you.
    2. Purchase the extra SIM watch option for your Galaxy Watch there. (The original packaging for the Galaxy Watch is needed because it contains both serial numbers that must be recorded with a handheld scanner).
