Apple Watch Series 3 Features, Specifications, Price and Release Date : Everything You Need to Know
Apple begins its September 2017 AppleEvent with the announcement of Apple Watch Series 3. Before the event, everybody was talking about possible announcement of Apple TV 4k, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and Apple Watch Series 3. Well, Apple didn’t disappoint them. And here is Apple Watch 3!
Apple Watch Series 3 Features and Specifications
As expected, this all new Apple Watch Series 3 boasts cellular data built-in and that red dot on the crown (it was rumoured earlier).
You can use the same number as your iPhone – iMessages have. There is no major difference between the hardware of current Apple Watch and its predecessors. But what makes difference is cellular, which will change the way you listen to music. You can now stream 40 million songs with Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple Music.
To make Siri faster, Apple introduced new dual-core processor; this enables Siri to talk. With Watch now, Siri can talk back to you. Don’t miss that W2 chip for Bluetooth and Wi-fi, and a new altimeter. This Altimeter is quite useful for users who love to hike and climb.
The integration of cellular was the biggest challenge for Apple. To solve this problem, the tech giant comes up with an integrated electronic SIM card. And the display itself is the antenna for LTE and UMTS. Earlier, Samsung’s Gear S2 watch was introduced with eSIM.
The size of Apple Watch Series 3 is the same as that of Series 2; however, the back crystal extends an extra .25mm. This latest Series 3 will be available in a wide variety of cases and bands. Be prepared to experience new space gray, a new sport loop band and new Nike Plus models.
Moreover, Apple launches new Hermes editions, new gray ceramic Watch.
Since this time Apple brings LTE in its smartwatch, the price is obviously a bit higher. If you want to buy cellular Apple Watch Series 3, it is available at $399, and the regular version of Apple Watch Series 3 is priced $329. Sadly, Apple Watch Series 2 is completely dropped by Apple.
When you get so many features packed in the same hardware, battery life is suffered. It was announced in the event that Apple Watch Series 3 has all-day battery life. This is quite vague as audience is clueless about the number of hours battery performs on Apple Watch Series 3.
You can pre-order this Apple Watch Series 3 from September 15 and it will be available on September 22.
