Ap­ple Watch Se­ries 3

Web User - - Apple’s New Products -

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.
