Features That Finally Make the New Apple Watch Worth It

Apple wants to test its new wearable as a cardiac screening device as CEO Tim Cook hints at a larger presence in healthcare

As revealed in a leak earlier today, the Apple Watch Series 3 features cellular LTE capabilities, allowing for users to make and receive cellular telephone calls on their watch without being connected to an iPhone. Apple claims the system, said to be even more secure than the Touch ID fingerprint reader, reads your face and works even if you grow a beard, wears glasses, or otherwise alter your appearance.

Soon, the combination of cellular and watchOS 4 will allow Apple Music users to stream 40 million songs right from their wrist.

The two new versions of Apple Watch Series 3 will launch this month.

A heart rate monitor is also present on the Apple Watch Series 3, as we also mentioned briefly above. The Apple Watch Series 3 costs $329 for the non-cellular model and $399 for the cellular model. Apple announced updates to both its watch and tv products at Tuesday's conference.

Series 3 comes in a variety of bands and cases... a new band, the sport loop, is best for an active lifestyle.

Apple has made a decision to scrape the price of its Watch Series 1 to Rs 21,900.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will be available for pre-order on September 15 and will release on September 22.

In announcing the new device, Apple's Tim Cook proclaimed that the company is now the world's largest watchmaker, having recently surpassed Rolex, a figure that The Verge said is likely based on revenues. A new, second-generation performance controller can harness all six cores simultaneously, delivering up to 70 percent greater performance for multi-threaded workloads, giving customers more power while providing the same great battery life. The first generation Watch will be available for $249. Apple still compares itself to watch companies even though it is not positioning its watch for fitness, like wearable makers do.

Apple introduces more health focused features such as activity trainers and better support for swimming. The non-cellular version could display notifications and make calls, but only by piggybacking on the phone in your pocket. Redesigned stereo speakers are up to 25 percent louder and deliver deeper bass, enabling richer-sounding music, videos and speakerphone calls.

For example, watchOS 4 comes with an updated Heart Rate app that provides more insight to heart rate, including measurements during resting, working out, recovery, walking, and Breathe sessions.

It has a host of fresh features such as a "talking Siri" virtual assistant and a custom W2 wireless chip for handling connectivity on the phone. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionised the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone - one in which the device disappears into the experience". They'll be available for order September 15 and get it on September 22.
