Your Apple Watch cellular plan? That'll be $10 a month

Last year's Apple Watch Series 2 added Global Positioning System, which was a major bonus for cyclists. The connected watch functions thanks to an eSIM, which will have the same number as that on the phone. The Apple Watch 3 additionally comes in a GPS-only model for £329, but we'd recommend spending the extra for the myriad extra features.

Apple has introduced the new Apple TV 4K created to deliver a stunning cinematic experience at home. Realistically, you'll need to charge your Apple Watch at the end of a full day, of course, although that depends on your usage and the level of interaction you have with the watch face. That means you can strap the Apple Watch on, go for your run and/or workout and take calls while at it and not have to bother about your phone slipping out of your pocket.

The Series 3's improved W2 wireless chip handles Bluetooth and WiFi connections with 50 percent greater power efficiency on both and up to 85 percent greater WiFi speeds, helping narrow the gap between phone and watch communication both directly and indirectly.

According to the official reports, Apple claims that its new Series 3, would have up to 18 hours of battery life and is only a fraction of a millimeter thicker than the previous Series 2.

In Cupertino California yesterday Apple made a slew of product announcements that significantly evolve and add to the digital health capabilities of its platform and devices.

But with the Apple Watch 3, the tech behemoth has solved that niggle. Design wise, the Series 3 is the same size as the Series 2, with its back expanded by 2.5mm. You are now able to choose from over 40 million songs and stream them directly to your wrist. As for the new Series 3 Edition, that too only comes as a cellular skew and starts at £1299 as well. The starting cost of the Apple Watch Series 3 is about Rs 29,900, and we can get it in various colours. Time will tell if the Apple Watch will eventually succeed the iPhone as Apple's flagship mobile device. We also tested location services by locating the event on Apple Maps.

The Apple Watch will open for pre-orders beginning September 15 and will ship Sept 22.

Before introducing the Series 3, Tim Cook announced that Apple Watch has seen phenomenal growth, and sales are up 50 percent from this time a year ago. The updated Heart Rate app provides notifications of irregular heart rate, which is useful if you have a heart condition and would like to track your changes during your daily grind.

Apple states that "Apple Watch battery testing was conducted by Apple in August 2017 using preproduction Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) and Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular), each paired with an iPhone".
