Apple Watch Series 3: what the new release will offer fitness fans

14 September 2017

The Apple Watch Series 3 will be announced tonight (12/09/2017).

Still, the new grey ceramic option for the Watch Edition (which starts at £1299, RM7190) is welcome - pretty as the white ceramic watches are, grey is harder to dirty, especially if you intend to take your Apple Watch travelling. It is priced at $399 for the watch with cellular connectivity and $329 without it.

Swatch Group AG shares fell as much as 3.2% on concern Switzerland's largest watchmaker will face more competition from the latest version of the Apple Watch, which can make calls and send messages without requiring a mobile phone. One of its biggest new features however is the updated Heart Rate app for more detailed monitoring, including measurements during resting, workout, recovery, walking and Breathe sessions, a feature introduced as part of the Series 2 to add a mindfulness aspect to health. Best of all, it brings Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV, filling a giant Transparent-sized hole in what you can watch with Apple's box. The shipping will start on September 22. And everything's been upgraded to 4K HDR, including the iTunes movies you've already bought-your existing stuff will just appear.

It may not have a fancy name, but the eSIM that the Apple Watch 3 uses to spoof your phone number is definitely exciting. It is faster than previous models and has a couple of new features. Apple Watch 3 will now let you stream music directly through the watch. It will now have a talking Siri, and will eventually allow the streaming of the entire Apple Music library of 40 million songs. Apparently Apple's focus this time around is battery life, and we'll see few changes in terms of the design.

India, Japan to work closely on connectivity
On Thursday, Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe will participate in the path-breaking ceremony of the bullet-train inauguration. It was in 2006 that India and Japan agreed to hold annual summits between the prime ministers of the two countries.

Apple hasn't made an official announcement about specific Apple Watch and heart related projects. There is also elevated heart rate detection which alerts you when you are at rest but your heartbeat is up.

There's also new Watch bands available now. The study has been approved by the FDA. It is powered by a new dual-core processor which 70% better performance than its predecessor. Furled by the Apple W2 chip, the new Apple Watch comprises faster Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

He said "The Apple Watch is created to help people stay active and motivated so they can have a better day".

For the first time, AppleTV will also offer live sports, including the current score of the game on the menu as you're selecting what to watch.
