Apple Watch Series 3
What is it?
It’s the latest version of Apple’s smartwatch, which uses the new dedicated operating system Watchos 4.
Why is it interesting?
The new Watch addresses one of the biggest complaints about previous versions: the need to have it close to your iphone. By introducing a cellular version, it now works independently so you can leave your phone at home and still make calls. It’s also 70% faster than the previous S2 version, and has a new barometric altimeter to track elevation data.
When is it available?
You can buy one right now. It costs £329 for the non-cellular model and £399 for the Lte-enabled version (a tiny SIM is built in) but be aware that it currently only works on the EE mobile network. There’s a £5-a-month tariff for existing EE iphone-contract holders.
