Apple's Watch 3 rolls out heart health and smart fitness features

Apple's Watch 3 rolls out heart health and smart fitness features”

The new operating system is expected to be WatchOS 4 and which will come with a variety of new features created to provide greater customization and improve user experience.

You can check out these Apple watchOS 4 update features in more detail in this roundup detailing the new features that Apple announced earlier this year.

Since the original watch's debut in April 2015, Apple has been trying to enable more stand-alone features.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is making a few changes so that it can be used on-the-go anywhere without an iPhone. The cellular connectivity allows users to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more, even without iPhone nearby. It will come with Watch OS 4 and will give you all day battery life. The company's new LTE- and UMTS-capable Apple Watch will go on sale later this month in 15 countries, with prices starting at $399 for the cellular version or $329 for a version without cellular. The Apple Watch Series 3 launch could be a good indication of whether Apple will remain king of the wearables industry or begin to fall behind.

There are rumours that the Apple Watch could launch at the same time as the iPhone 8 at an event on 12 September. In the United Kingdom the Series 3 will be made available with EE.

This would be a huge step forward for the Apple Watch as it aims to become the king of the wearables market and the best fitness tracker available.

Oh, and Apple is keeping the Series 1 model around as a super-low budget option, with pricing beginning at $249.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook was speaking at the Apple keynote, where a raft of product news is expected. It also confirmed when it's going to release watchOS 4 and what new features it's going to bring.

The upgrade includes live sports and according to Apple, any HD videos previously bought through iTunes will get upgraded to 4K for free.

Tim Cook said that the "Apple Watch is created to help people stay active and motivated so they can have a better day". The original Series 1, without Global Positioning System, sells for $249, down from $269. Also, for the first time for the Watch series, the Siri on the new Watch can now talk, with the dual-core processor.
