Apple Watch Series 3, WatchOS 4 Announced at Apple Keynote 2017

With new software and LTE connectivity, the Apple Watch Series 3 also comes with a slew of newly designed watch bands. And the display now works as an antenna for the cellular connection which is provided through an electronic SIM to make the Series 3 watch a touch slimmer than its predecessor. So there is no need for the smartwatch to constantly paired with the iPhone, and yet able to make calls, receive texts and screen Apple Music.

In a partnership with Stanford University, Apple will let users download the Heart Study app to their Watches and then it will anonymously collect the data and give it to researchers.

The Apple Watch has risen to become the "number one watch in the world", over companies like Fossil, Rolex, and Omega, which is a pretty important statement when you consider the fact that just last year it was #2 in the ranking, having experienced 50 percent year-over-year growth in the interim.

Pre-orders for the Apple Watch series 3 from 15th September whereas it'll be available in stores starting from 22nd September.

For example, watchOS 4 comes with an updated Heart Rate app that provides more insight to heart rate, including measurements during resting, working out, recovery, walking, and Breathe sessions. Now, the new watch will notify users when it detects an elevated heart rate when they don't appear to be active. Of course it will run on watchOS 4 with enhanced health features for athletes and the regular customers who are just looking for light workout. Following the Apple Watch Series 1 and the GPS-equipped Apple Watch Series 2, Apple has expanded its Watch lineup this year the Watch Series 3. Finally, a single-color ceramic case option that has been available since the Apple Watch Series 2 is still there, but you actually have a couple more color options. Apple's success is unsurprising, and the Watch is likely only going to grow (in popularity, not size) with the highly anticipated addition of cellular functionality. There is a new Barometric sensor that will enable some cool skiing and snowboarding apps. Pre-orders will go live on September 15, ahead of a September 22 release date.

Apple has chose to scrape the price of its Watch Series 1 to Rs 21,900.

The company touted the watch's heart monitoring, 70 percent faster dual core processor and up to 18 hours of battery life.

The cellular version will first go on sale in nine countries including the United Kingdom and the USA, while the Wi-Fi-only model will be available in 26 countries. It is a whole new device with a display that completely covers the front, well nearly. Definitely be conscious of where you are taking calls.

Apple is coming out with a new smartwatch created to be less dependent on the iPhone.
