Apple Watch Series 3 officially debuted. We have the same design, some more changes under the hood, new features and another version of the system, watchOS 4.
Tim Cook mentioned that Apple Watch is the best-selling watch in the world . Besides, it enjoys high satisfaction among buyers (positive opinion is expressed by 97% of users).
Appearance of the Apple Watch Series 3
The Apple Watch Series 3 is still the same smartwatch that Apple created a few years ago – at least in terms of design. The third episode still uses the same rectangular envelope. The sale will appear two known sizes, that is 38 and 42 mm. This means that old stripes will definitely fit in with the new smartwatch. Dimensions are the same as for Series 2.In terms of design, the biggest change is the red color on the Digital Crown. However, it will only receive LTE version. We also have new strips, but it was rather predictable.
Specification Apple Watch Series 3
The Apple Watch Series 3 stands out above all for the LTE module . This way, it will not be tethered to your smartphone. The iPhone will not be required for most minor actions. The control center will display a signal strength indicator in the form of dots. They will also be visible on the dial. The display is practically a watch antenna for LTE and UMTS networks. An eSIM card is used .
Processor, battery and other changes
The third series has received the new, faster and more efficient dual-core Apple S3 chip. We do not know what with the battery, although it can be more capacious and offer up to 18h usage. Smartwatch, like the second series – will receive a GPS module, NFC and waterproof immersion up to 50 m. Watch will finally speak – Siri will respond through the speaker. We have 85% faster WiFi, thanks to W2 for Bluetooth and WiFi. Also rumors about the ceramic edition of the Apple Watch Series 3 in gray are also confirmed – but it looks almost black. We also have some other colors.
New features in watchOS 4
On the Apple Watch Series 3, there will be another version of watchOS 4. The system will also appear on older watch releases. WatchOS 4 will bring new shield complications. An important new feature will be the ability to add Siri Watch Face , which will remind you of the most important things to do in the following hours. This shield will be dynamically updated and will receive support for HomeKit. It is a shame, however, that Siri still can not communicate in our native language.The new shield will also be a Kaleidoscope, which we will be able to customize arbitrarily. There will also be characters from Toy Story. New and smaller animations will also be new to showcase new achievements in the Activity app. It looks like watchOS 4 will also bring the redesigned look of this app and new workouts. For the first time you will be able to switch on several trainings in the same session. watchOS 4 will bring the Dock look and the Music app itself. We will be able to change it from the enabled workout. You will automatically sync your favorite music to Apple Watch (playlist support). Enabling a workout will also equate (with the option enabled) with the start of the playlist you have selected for us. Apple Watch will also tell us more about our health, and especially our heart rate. Smartwatch will be able to detect arrhythmia or other heart related health problems. WatchOS 4 will be available from 19 September.
Price and sale of Apple Watch Series 3
The Apple Watch Series 3 with 38 mm case and LTE module will cost $ 399. For a variant without a module, and therefore a red digital lace, we will pay $ 329. Prices for the 42 mm version will be higher. Series 1 now costs $ 249. So it looks like the 2 series are withdrawn. Sales will begin on September 22nd. Pre-sales start on Friday – September 15th. It's not known when the Apple Watch Series 3 from LTE will come to Poland. Apparently Apple has not signed any contracts with operators in Poland, so this version will not be available in our country. With the standard version, the Apple Watch Series 3 will be available in pre-sales from September 15th, and store shelves will hit September 29th.
