Apple Watch 3
The great thing about Apple is its ability to take an innovative product and expand it. The company’s aim is to take what’s brilliant and make it extraordinary, and with the new Apple Watch Series 3 they’ve done just that.
Many fans have been wondering what makes Apple Watch 3 any better than its predecessors, the answer almost everything. Apple Watch 3 now has cell phone capabilities, music streaming, better fitness apps and better GPS tracking than its previous iterations.
There are two versions of the Series 3. One version contains the 4G cellular connectivity, while the other cheaper version simply has GPS. Both however have received major upgrades over Apple Watch 2.
Apple has also pumped up battery life and added a water-resistant casing for swimming so you stay connected literally everywhere. Aside from being a standalone smartwatch, Apple is pushing the Series 3 as the ultimate fitness and lifestyle device needed to keep one on track for the day.
Series 3 contains three Activity rings that encourage users to "move, exercise, and stand," the goal of which is close out all three rings by the end of the day. If self-motivation isn’t enough the device has Activity sharing, where watcher owners can compete with their friends.
Series 3 also has an upgraded heart monitor on the back face of the watch to help you maintain your vital signs while working out and walking.
Apple Watch 3 is on the pricier side of smartwatches with prices ranging from $399 to $500. While that’s a hefty price to pay, many users say it’s well worth it. The final product is lightweight and durable. With the use of OLED technology the screen is amazingly clear and bright. Read more reviews on Smartwatchpicks.
As with most Apple products the Apple Watch 3 can only be paired with an iPhone and operates on WatchOS 4. When using the cellular capable version, users have cautioned that Siri’s performance can be spotty at times, but the bugs can usually be worked out.
