Apple Watch Series 3 cuts the cord from your iPhone

Posted September 13, 2017

Series 3 comes in a variety of bands and cases... a new band, the sport loop, is best for an active lifestyle.

At the special Apple Event on September 12th, Apple announced the new Apple Watch 3 and the watchOS 4 release date that will come ahead of the new Apple Watch models. Third party apps such as WeChat are supported over the cellular functionality, said Apple at the time of the launch. It will also let you make calls and stream Apple Music directly from the watch further bringing down the dependability on the iPhone. However, unlike the previous two models, this Apple Watch finally comes with LTE service. Apple Music is also going to be available on the new apple watch so you can listen to all your favorite songs or podcasts while running or working out. Apple has also revised the price of the Watch Series 1 to Rs 21,900. To mash all of this capability into the casing, the Apple team added an electronic SIM, a fraction of the size of a regular SIM, an antennae and a custom wireless chip that is 85 percent faster for WiFi and more power efficient for both bluetooth and WiFi. Another big highlight of the latest operating system is the integration of Siri, Apple's voice assistant. Apple promises up to 18 hours of battery life.
