I will be traveling to Germany with both my iPhone 7 and my Series 3 Apple Watch (which has a cellular plan). While I know that Travel Pass will charge me $10/day when I use my phone, will I incur another charge for my Apple Watch when texts or calls ring through? I definitely don't want to pay $10/day for the convenience of reading my texts on my watch. I know that I can put the watch in airplane mode, but am curious as to how Verizon handles this.
No, there wouldn't be any additional charges internationally with the watch-
No, NumberShare won't work when you're traveling internationally, but the host device will continue to work. Visit our Trip Planner to determine if your phone will work in a specific country and get more information about coverage and pricing options.
Currently, the extension device only works on the shared number if it's connected to the Verizon Wireless network or paired with the host device via Bluetooth.

BLOOBIRDIE, this is a very good question! If you're sharing a line with your Apple Watch, with your current device that has the Travel Pass then you will still receive Travel Pass charges for this device. However, if this watch has a line on its own it will incur pay as you go rates, this would be if you do not get an international plan for this device and use it internationally.
That is a good question! Airplane Mode will disable your roaming access to voice, messaging and data which will prevent your line from incurring international charges abroad.
Or can I just turn off Cellular for all apps for the watch and force it to tag along with my phone, which has the Global Plan? Help please! We have two phones and two watches going to Europe. Thanks!
BzyTchr, Number Share won't work with your watches when you're traveling internationally.
Currently, the connected device only works on the shared number when it's connected to the Verizon wireless network within the United states or paired with the host device through Bluetooth. https://www.verizon.com/support/numbershare-faqs/
