Apple unveils Watch Series 3 with LTE support

The only real change in the Apple Watch Series 3, actually, is the new LTE capability.

While Apple typically keeps tight-lipped on sales of its smartwatch, Tim Cook said during today's keynote that Apple Watch sales have grown 50 per cent year on year.

Although the Apple Watch Series 3 has been linked with circular faces, something that has been murmured about since the first generation of the Apple Watch range, we should not necessarily expect this to come to fruition. It will be available through Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint with orders beginning September 15 and availability September 22.

Up till now, Apple Watch devices had to rely on a paired iPhone to get connected to the internet.

Apple Watch will still require a companion iPhone.

Apple Watch - the number one watch in the world - now has an LTE variant, distinguishable by a red crown.

The iPhone 8 will feature a new chip, called the A11, which includes six cores and delivers 70 percent improvement in multi-threaded workloads, Schiller said.

The watch's antenna is built into the screen, and it uses a smaller electronic SIM card rather than a standard SIM. The size of the watch is much the same as series 2, but with many more feartures. The back crystal is extended 0.25 mm. It's still got Global Positioning System like Series 2, and it's swimproof.

Battery life is 18 hours.

The company also introduced a newer version of the Apple WatchOS.

What we know now is that Apple Watch Series 3 goes for $399 for the cellular version and $329 for the non-cellular version, with order starting September 15 and deliveries starting September 22.

Recent Apple product launches have been light on surprises because the tech media and Apple enthusiasts have become expert at sussing out hardware specifications and software features from the company's supply chain partners and software developer network. It ships on September 22.

WatchOS 4 will not only measure your current heart rate, it will also collect data on your resting heart rate and recovery heart rate, said Apple. Gym machines may also be able to display heart rate from the Apple Watch on their displays so you don't have to glance down at your wrist every time you want to check. And they'll alert you when you have an arrhythmia, or an irregular heart rate compared to your usual stats. "That can cause problems, the most common form is AFIB, it affects tens of millions of people and is a leading cause of stroke".
