Apple Watch 3 With 4G LTE Support Goes Official

Posted September 14, 2017

To add LTE, Apple had to completely re-engineer the internals of the watch without making it thicker.

Apple launched three new flagship iPhone models - iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, along with the new Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV at the multibillion-dollar Apple Park campus in California on September 12. He also said that Apple Watch is ready to rival with Rolex, Fossil and Omega which are the No.1 manufacturers of watches in the world.

One thing that may scare a lot of people is that a new Face ID replaces Touch ID for security. If you didn't, there's not much different besides LTE.

It also means that running out of battery on a phone doesn't mean an inability to be in touch. Both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have wireless charging. The iPhone X will start at a hefty $999, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will start at a more reasonable $699 and $799, respectively. All this meant that there was little surprise that Apple Watch Series 3 would be in the works and that it would have some new bells and whistles. The only reason to get the more expensive cellular version of the watch is if you intend to use it on LTE. Apple claims the battery should last up to 18 hours.

Continuing Apple's renewed focus on health for the Apple Watch, Apple is teaming up with Stanford University and telemedicine company American Well to test the Apple Watch Series 3 in detecting abnormal heart rhythms and diagnosing possible heart problems. The Apple Watch 3 additionally comes in a GPS-only model for £329, but we'd recommend spending the extra for the myriad extra features.

Customers will be able to order Apple Watch Series 3 beginning Friday, September 15, with it arriving in stores from Friday, September 22.

Both the Apple ecosystem products improve in design and functionality. With the help of the A10X Fusion chip, the graphics are four times faster than before. But there is one exception: Disney hasn't signed on to offer 4K HDR movies through iTunes yet.

Apple will automatically upgrade supporting movies to 4K on iTunes - in other words, even your previous purchases will be upgraded to 4K.

While developers had access to beta versions of the new software since WWDC, Apple didn't make it part of the public beta program.

Apple yesterday announced the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at an event in Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino.

The new Heart Rate Monitor in this new watchOS4 will give you more accurate data of your heart's functionality.
