The Just-Announced 'Apple Watch Series 3' Has Cellular Connectivity

Tim Cook introduces the Apple Watch

Your Apple Watch knows more about your body than a treadmill does, with tons of logged information including height and weight, but the treadmill is considered more accurate in estimated your total distance.

Apple TV will be able to show Internet programming in 4K-just like Roku and Amazon Fire TV. The new Apple TV is priced at $179 and you order Sept 15th, with shipping on Sept 22nd. Games will also be available to play via the Apple TV 4K, taking advantage of the product's upgraded processing and graphics power. The smartwatch will be synced with the paired iPhone, without requiring to change the number.

It looks like its predecessor but now comes with built-in cellular. It will require a data plan, which typically costs $5 or $10 a month. Rolex is now the number two watch in the world. Feedback from 1,500 existing Apple Watch owners indicated that this is the most valuable feature that Apple has yet to include in its smartwatch, and thus this could debut in the Apple Watch Series 3. This could see the Apple Watch Series 3 price set at $399 in the United States, while Apple is also likely to slash the price tag of previous models. The one which come without cellular feature goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now. The original Series 1, without Global Positioning System, sells for $249, down from $269. The new watch comes out September 22.

Existing Apple Watches will get a software update next Tuesday.

Despite releasing the Apple Watch Series 2 just one year ago in September 2016, Apple has made a decision to amp up its game with a new device in the lineup: the Apple Watch Series 3.

Steve Jobs Theater itself is of great interest to Apple enthusiasts. Tim Cook, in his opening remarks, said that the device had grown in sales by 50 percent year-on-year, and now Apple Watch is the world's most popular watch - although it's probably not the world's biggest watchmaker.

This would not only make it easy to connect to the charger, but also mean you could charge the Watch while it's lying at an angle, so you could for example use it as a bedside clock.

The event opened with audio of Jobs talking about Apple's vision, followed by heartfelt comments by Cook reflecting on his friend and mentor.

Apple has unveiled its new generation of iPhone, the 8 and the 8 Plus. During the unveil, Apple said there will be an "introductory offer" from carriers but didn't give any details on that.
