  • Apple has revealed its newest smartwatch will be equipped with its own built-in cellular capabilities for the first time. The $399 Series 3 Apple Watch will allow users to make calls directly from their wrist without an iPhone nearby

Apple said that all four major U.S. carriers will offer service for the watch, and AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile U.S. Inc. both said it would cost an extra $10 a month.

Apple introduces more health focused features such as activity trainers and better support for swimming.

The Apple Watch Series 3's price starts at $329 for a non-cellular version and $399 with cellular.

Apple says that the new dual-core processor on the new Apple Watch Series 3, is 70% faster than the previous model, resulting in quicker app launch times, smoother graphics and transition.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will be available in the USA from 22 September.

Apple anticipates that the combination of cellular and watchOS 4 will allow Apple Music users to stream 40 million songs right from their wrist.

For those who like music to motivate them during a workout, Apple has redesigned the Music app to automatically sync playlists and your most listened-to music.

The latest in Apple technology was revealed on Tuesday, including details on the Apple Watch Series 3.

The app will more accurately measure heart rate at rest, during exercise, and during recovery as well as deliver notifications to users when their heart rate is above a specific threshold at rest. The Apple Watch now has a 97 per cent customer satisfaction rate. You might want to watch this video in slow motion. The company even accommodated the antenna to the display and possessed an electronic SIM. Apple also added a new wireless chip on the device called the W2, that provides 85% faster WiFi data transfers, while making the WiFi and Bluetooth streaming 50% more power efficient.

With the Apple Watch Series 3, that problem is a thing of the past. For me, this is one of the best of the Apple Watch Series 3 features. The biggest highlight of the latest version of the watch from Apple is that it comes with its own LTE connection that lets users take and make calls irrespective of whether their phone is hooked to the watch.

Orders start September 15th, available September 22nd at Optus, Vodafone and Telstra. Apple claims the watch should give up to 18 hours of battery life. However, we do know Apple has been working with gyms and equipment manufacturers to push out updated machines across the country. The new Watch will be available on September 22.
