Apple releases statement revealing connectivity problems with the Apple Watch Series 3

Since that's a primary selling point of the cellular-connected Apple Watch Series 3, it's a pretty big deal. Battery life seems to be rather less than was proclaimed at launch, and Apple has also identified LTE issues that prevent the watch from using cellular. The company is investigating the issue and will likely come out with a fix in a future software update. The Apple Watch goes on sale this Friday. With a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, it can make/take calls, activate Siri, send texts and connect to the internet without pairing with an iPhone, as previous variants were required to.

The LTE Apple Watch is supposed to seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi and LTE. Series 3 should feature built-in cellular connection. While Samsung did have a smartwatch with a modem in it, I could never get it to work well and this model never caught on. Site editor Lauren Goode noticed that her Watch was not only struggling to connect to LTE, but would also connect to random wireless networks. But Apple is also working with Stanford to study how Apple Watch can help identify heart irregularities like arrhythmias.

Ars will have its own review of the Apple Watch Series 3 in the coming days. It's not that it looks bad in and of itself, but it draws unnecessary attention. "Apple sells a lot of watch bands that clash with the red dot". And all of my testing of phone calls on the watch took place mid-day on busy city streets - full of traffic and pedestrians - here in Philadelphia.

KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo had initially forecasted the premium version of the new watch to make up 30 to 40 percent of the orders. If you use Global Positioning System on your new Apple Watch or the headline feature - making calls - the battery takes a real hit. "The new cellular feature is great for leaving your phone behind during workouts (then taking an Uber back or stopping at Whole Foods for a refueling snack)".
