EXPRESS NEWSPAPERSApple Watch Series 3 has been unveiled
The new smartwatch comes with several improvements and features. Apple's Cook said the company's Watch sales grew 50% year-over-year.
The new version, called Apple Watch Series 3, will use an existing iPhone phone number when making calls, Apple said. How is Apple getting that 97 percent customer satisfaction out of their watch users?
The Apple Watch 3 will be able to tap into the cellular network, which means you don't have to lug your iPhone along when you go on a run.
The new Watch costs $399 with cellular capability, or $329 without.
Apple shares rose 1.1% to $163.30 after the company discussed the Watch. It's an important feature, and turns the watch into a veritable iPhone Light, allowing you to leave the phone behind while going out for a quick workout or running an unexpected errand.
The new watch will also include a faster dual core processor and a barometric altimeter, which measures the altitude of an object above a fixed level. "Our little watch is already packed", but for cellular, you have to add antennas, radios, and a SIM card, among other things. In terms of design, the new watch is the same physical size as the Series 2. The processor also now lets Siri talk and packs a W2 wireless chip and an all-day battery life although Apple didn't specify exactly how long it will last on a single charge with LTE connectivity.
