Apple Watch Series 3

Apple;

Apple today introduced Apple Watch Series 3, adding built-in cellular to the world’s number one watch. Whether users are out for a run, at the pool or just trying to be more active throughout their day, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows them to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more, even without iPhone nearby. The third-generation Apple Watch is an amazing health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance 50 meters1 and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation. Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both featuring a 70 percent faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.

I have the original Apple Watch and to me it feels like that Apple Watch Series 3 is the Apple Watch that Apple intended to release two years ago.

This will now be the new pricing of both the old and new Apple Watch;

  • Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular): $399 (US)
  • Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS only): $329 (US)
  • Apple Watch Series 1 : $249 (US)

Samsung’s smartwatch lineup now works with your iPhone

Jon Fingas, writing for Engadget;

Did you sigh wistfully at Samsung’s Gear S3, knowing you couldn’t use it because you have an iPhone? Relax. Samsung has launched new Gear S and Gear Fit apps that bring iOS compatibility to all of its current wrist-worn devices, including the Gear S3 (both Classic and Frontier), the Gear S2 and the Gear Fit 2. You won’t see all the integration you would on an Android phone (let alone a Samsung phone), but you can receive notifications, manage apps and track your S Health data. Hardware features should work, too, so you can expect GPS and environmental sensors to play a part.

The first line of the next paragraph is the kicker.
