The Esim is an evolution of the traditional sim card which is known worldwide for being the one that provides connectivity with communication networks, allowing calls to be made and the Internet to be used through mobile data.

These cards are usually inserted into a special slot found on the sides of smartphones. It was invented and later launched on the mobile phone market in 1991, date from which it has sought to reduce its size and improve connection capacity. The three models of Sim cards that have existed so far chronologically are the Minisim, Microsim and NanoSim.

Nevertheless, eSims work in Colombia since December 2018 with the arrival of the Apple Watch Series 4, which was the first device to handle this technology in the country.

In fact, the devices in which this technology has been especially useful are smartwatches, which will no longer take calls from the Bluetooth pairing with the cell phone, but will do so from their own software, improving the quality of the calls.
