Apple announces third generation smartwatch with LTE

13 September 2017

Size options remain at 38mm and 42mm like the original Apple Watch.

In terms of price, the Apple Watch Series 3 will start at $329, with the LTE model starting at $399, increasing significantly depending on material. The third-generation Apple Watch is an wonderful health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance 50 meters1 and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation.

The smartwatch comes with cellular connectivity for which one can insert an embedded SIM (or eSIM) card into the watch.

So, having a water-resistant watch with dual core and LTE it is the same as numerous Android watch companies, but none of them is as cool as Apple - after all it has a logo.

The watchOS 4 release date is September 19th. You can pre-order from September 15th in selected countries, with actual availability starting on September 22nd.

Consumers can place orders starting September 15 and shipping September 22. The biggest highlight of the Apple Watch 3 is that it comes with built-in cellular connectivity.

Users of the new watch will be able to use their existing iPhone phone number - they won't need separate numbers for the two devices. The new device's display itself is a multi-frequency antenna for both LTE and UMTS.

The company touted the watch's heart monitoring, 70 percent faster dual core processor and up to 18 hours of battery life. Apple Watch Series 3 also features a barometric altimeter that assists with tracking activity, flights climbed and outdoor workouts, including elevation gain. The new software will offer new measurements including resting heart rate and recovery heart rate.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will also sport improved cameras, a glass back for the wireless charging, and a better-quality "Retina HD" display that Apple says is better able to handle ambient light. It automatically syncs playlists like New Music Mix and Favorites Mix with the user's most listened music.

The new watch also features a barometer to count the flights of stairs you've climbed during your day and it will also come with Apple Music streaming. But even though Apple says this means the new Watch is just 0.25mm thicker, or roughly the thickness of two pieces of paper, there does appear to be a noticeable difference.

As Apple hosts its first ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater, the company will also be announcing a couple of products which are due for an update.

Apple Watch is now the number one watch brand in the world, according to Apple, surpassing Rolex. The Series 1 starts at $269, while the Series 2 starts at $369. After introducing the ceramic white watch material last year, this year Apple is introducing a ceramic gray. That's an incredible achievement most are not aware of.

To keep up with the newest crop of HDTVs, Apple is updating the AppleTV to include support for 4K movies and live sports. The study has been approved by the FDA.
