Apple Watch 3 release date UK, price and specs: LTE Apple Watch 3 to use the same phone number as iPhone its

Apple just unveiled its new Apple Watch Series 3 smartwatch with LTE connectivity, a cutting-edge feature that means you'll no longer have to keep your iPhone nearby to use all of its features. An earlier study Apple did with the University of California San Francisco found that previous versions of the watch had a 97 per cent accuracy level in detecting abnormal heart rhythms, Tech Crunch reported. The Series 3 watch will have the same number as your iPhone.

The new watch also features a barometer to count the flights of stairs you've climbed during your day and it will also come with Apple Music streaming.

"The biggest challenge was adding cellular", Williams said.

The Apple Watch Series 3 starts presale on September 15 with the 38mm model retailing for $559.

The watch with cellular connectivity will be available in nine countries September 22 starting at $399, Apple said. Since the launch of the Series 2, Apple Watch has seen a 50 percent growth year-on-year. At the time of last year's announcement Apple had become the second-largest watch manufacturer (by revenue) in the world. It lets users attend calls, send and receive messages, check locations in maps and more without touching their iPhone handsets. The company announced a new Apple TV with 4K capabilities that can stream ultra-high definition video to compatible televisions with more than 8 million pixels per frame - significantly sharper than traditional high-definition video. The next generation of Apple Watch is not much different than its predecessor.

As had been widely expected, Apple confirmed the official release date of iOS 11 at a media event held today at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino. iOS 11 will be released on September 19th. The new watchOS 4 update includes additional features to help track recovery and other important features for working out. The marketing around the first iteration of the Watch had focused on the device as a fashion accessory. The company demoed making a phone call from the Watch which also showed off a clear audio sound.
