The new models include Global Positioning System, and some models support LTE, although to get a cellular plan you need to have iPhone on the carrier, too.

USA consumers who want Apple Inc's newest iPhones, including its most expensive model yet, the iPhone X, may find fewer deals as wireless carriers are less willing to offer subsidies on devices in a saturated market. The display of the watch serves as the antenna for the 4G LTE and 3G cellular connectivity; which means live streaming of music as well! Check out more photos of Apple's newest watch ahead.

The study will test the Watch's ability to detect heart rate abnormalities.

Apple has also outlined how long the Apple Watch 3 takes to charge.

The details of Apple's implementation are interesting, though.

Similar to tablets, wireless firms could add $10 to subscriber data plans for Apple Watch web connectivity.

We reached out to Apple for clarification, and a spokesperson did indeed confirm that an iPhone is required. We've just confirmed it'll cost you an extra $10 a month - on top of your existing phone plan - regardless of whether you pick AT&T, Sprint, Verizon or T-Mobile. The watch uses the same telephone number as your smartphone. You're good to go with the Series 3.

The third generation Apple smartwatch, the Apple Watch 3, is now official.

When it comes to battery, the Series 3 only lasts a day, compared to the full charge of the series 2 which lasts two days.

The new hardware allows for other enhancements. The new upgrade helps app launch times and smoother graphics and brings talking Siri to the watch using the built-in speaker.

Other big improvements are more functional than anything. The feature will register elevation gained and flights climbed during physical activity. And it's the same size as its predecessor, yet still has cellular connectivity.

Bands and Cases and Models, Oh My!

While it was not clearly indicated during the keynote, you can ascertain that health and fitness verticals are going to be a huge part of Apple's focus in the next five years.

And things could be about to get even better for this wearable tech with the launch of the all-new Apple Watch Series 3.

As with mosts devices Apple posts a detailed breakdown of battery life statistics on their website, and the Series 3 is no different. It's all quite dizzying.

"We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone", said Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer. Over 1 hour of talk time while connected directly to LTE.

Interested in the upcoming Apple Watch 3 but anxious about how much battery life you will get?

The Apple Watch 3 will have its usual heart rate app, but the app has been updated to monitor measurements including your resting and recovery heart rates, and to notify you if you've got an elevated heart rate when you're not being active.
