Apple’s September 12 announcement was a huge success by all accounts. The major event of the event was the announcement of the iPhone 8, the iPhone X, a new Apple Watch and a WatchOS update. Now, WatchOS 4 features a lot of upgrades, which include an updated and much more intuitive Heart Rate app, a proactive Siri watch face, and an autoset function for pool training. However, the new Apple Watch Series 3 features blow all previous versions out of the water. Here are some of the best of these features:
This is one of the most important new Apple Watch Series 3 features. Before, you had to connect your watch to your phone through Bluetooth before you could use the cellular function. This new feature eliminates the need for that.
With the cellular addition, the latest Apple Watch can now function with Apple Music. This allows users to stream music directly from their Apple Watch.
DESIGN AND PROCESSOR
The new Apple Series 3 features a new, faster dual-core processor. This allows for 70 percent faster performance and quicker loading graphics.
Apple added a series of hardware updates to boost connectivity. Now, there’s a really slim electronic-SIM card. There’s also a W2 chip, to improve Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, which increases Wi-Fi speeds by 85 percent.
Neither previous version of the Apple Watch could track elevation. To do this, you would have to connect your watch with your iPhone. Now, the Apple Watch Series 3 features a barometric altimeter, which tracks and records elevation metrics during workouts.
According to the company, the new Apple Watch will be coming to a Town Square near you real son. Apple will be offering the fully loaded Apple Watch 3 for $399, and a version without cellular connectivity for $329. Meanwhile, you can preorder the Apple Watch 3 now, and the new phones will be available on September 22.
