The new Apple Watch Series 3 is being released with a new feature that will make their users happy.
Yup, Apple made the announcement on Tuesday that they developed their Apple Watch Series 3 to include a built in antenna that will allow you to make calls and listen to music without your iPhone near.
“Now you have the freedom to go anywhere with just your Apple Watch,” said company COO Jeff Williams. “You can receive calls with just watch. Apps like Message just work and Siri is at your beck and call anything anywhere.”
The COO also said that the watch isn’t going to be bigger, but it will be thicker, but that’s in order to have the new features of not needing your iPhone near you to use it.
How does it work? The second your watch detects that you’re out of range from your IPhone, the antenna feature will kick in and you’ll have a full functioning watch/iPhone/iPod.
“The biggest challenge was adding cellular and our little watch is already packed,” COO Williams said. “If you don’t do it right, it looks like a house-arrest bracelet and you don’t wanna wear it.”
The new processor is going to be 70 percent fast than the Series 2 watch and it was also upgraded to include a better version of the health monitoring feature too.
The Series 3 with cellular data will run about $399 and the Series 3 with non-cellular will be only $329… He also said the new Apple Watch Series 3 will ship September 22.
