Apple Watch Series 3 Hotspot?

Tethering in the AT&T service is something you can sign up for in current phone plans. Can a Series 3 Apple Watch with cellular be capable of creating a hotspot? It's probably likely to with a simple software update. What has AT&T been planning?

wearables are not designed to be hotspots....  I have been using connected wearables since the Samsung Gear s....  The watch has a esim which means its really going to be limited on what it can do.  The watch will use numbersync att has already anounced it.  The apple watch is not designed to be a standalone device all the time.
