Apple Watch Series 3 will now get LTE speeds — Mobile backtracks

P.S.: I made that image of the Apple Watch with magenta background in Pixelmator.

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) models may only work to provide cellular services in the country where they were originally purchased, according to a new report by MacRumors. Customers with the Apple Watch Series 3 aren't likely to be doing anything very data-intensive on their smartwatch, which is why some folks are disappointed by this limit. As Apple says, you can "stay connected when you're away from your phone". The ability to stream music is coming to your waterproof watch, too. While the Apple Watch Series 3 looks pretty much like its predecessors from the outside, customers now have the choice to add LTE connectivity with a starting price of $399.

However, the battery life is still something you'll need to monitor.

That said, the response from the Apple support rep only specified that Apple Watch sold in the U.S. would not be compatible outside of the U.S. It's less clear whether this restriction will exist with Apple Watch Series 3 models sold in other countries, such as within the European Union, where common LTE bands are used between countries. However, he was less enticed about the Sport Loop nylon band that wrapped around his wrist, describing it as "an acquired taste".

The biggest feature of the Apple Watch Series 3 is it now comes in two models. It'll use the same phone number as your iPhone, so you won't require an additional line.

With improvised exterior and interior, iPhone 8 is ready for pre-booking from September 15 in the countries including the USA, the UK, China, Australia, India and other 24 countries around the world. There are three pricing options: $329 for a GPS-capable device, $399 for a machine with Global Positioning System and cellular compatibility, and $599 will net you both of those features and a nifty stainless steel case.
