The next generation Apple Watch Series 3 is now more independent of the iPhone thanks to its LTE connection. From now on, you can play sports without having to carry your iPhone with you.
The design is similar to previous versions, where the number of user acceptance has been quite high . So we continue with the rectangular design.
In addition to presenting a new collection of straps , both sports and fashion. The Apple Watch Series 2 disappears from the Apple catalogue. Now we will have the new Apple Watch Series 3, Apple Watch Nike+ and the Apple Watch Series 1.
The new, more independent Apple Watch
Now it is possible to perform everyday actions without having to be connected to a WiFi network or our own iPhone. Thanks to the Apple SIM the Apple Watch is able to be autonomous with a more than acceptable level of battery performance compared to the current model.
In the digital crown we can see a new detail, where it would have been seen in some filtrations of iOS 11 GM . This will be the signal that we have an Apple Watch with LTE connection.
The LTE connection can be shared with our data rate or by purchasing a new service through Apple’s options with confirmed carriers.
The colour range is similar to the previous ones, with ceramic being the highest priced model and aluminium for the sports and lower priced model.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is available from September 19, in Spain it will arrive on September 22.
New W2 chip
The new chip in the new Apple Watch has 85% more speed in WiFi transmission. All this thanks to its new processor which is twice as fast as the W1 chip thanks to the dual core .
The microphone has been improved, where we now have a much clearer audio quality . The big news is that it won’t be necessary to bring the clock closer to the mouth, as we have to do now.
Furthermore, we have the possibility to use it in salt or fresh water without any problem. Perfect for users who practice some kind of water sport.
Interaction with Siri
Siri can now speak directly from the Apple Watch. Now we can interact with her. She’ll respond to us from the Apple Watch. There we can ask her for all the actions similar to those we do on the iPhone.
The Apple Watch has a 97% satisfaction rate
In the presentation of the Apple Watch Series 3, Tim Cook states that the Apple Watch is the world’s best-selling smart watch . Thanks to it, users have achieved their goals when it comes to physical exercise.
The Apple Watch surpasses in sales brands like Rolex, Fossil, Omega or Cartier. Positioning itself in the first “watch brand” worldwide. A complete success.
Apple Music on the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE
Now you can listen to Apple Music directly from the Apple Watch. All the lists we have in Apple Music , can be heard without any problems with the new Apple Watch Series 3.
Thanks to the AirPods, the wireless user experience will be better than the current one, where we can enjoy the Bluetooth connection without having our iPhone connected.
Price of the new Apple Watch Series 3 LTE
The Apple Watch Series 3 is priced from 369-399 euros for the Wifi version and Apple Watch Series 3 LTE version from 399 dollars. Not yet available in Spain, but it will be.
In countries where there is an agreement to be able to use the Apple Watch with an Apple SIM or virtual SIM, a plan of $10 per month is offered to be able to use it . In Spain there is no agreement with any company, but it is estimated that there will be.
We have a fairly extensive catalogue, as does its price. You can combine the straps with the new spheres you’ll see in watchOS 4 .
The new belts are priced at 59 euros initially up to 159 euros. The anchorage will remain the same, so we can take advantage of the current straps if we have any Apple Watch.
