What's new with the Apple Watch and TV

Apple Watch might soon be able to detect heart problems

Apple announced yesterday that unlike previous versions of the Apple Watch, the new Series 3 model does not need to be paired to a nearby iPhone for internet access, or to make/take phone calls.

If you're planning on buying an Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE connectivity, be aware that you'll be faced with a hidden cost. The 4K Apple TV features the addition of 4K HDR.

WatchOS 4 also has the proactive Siri watch face that displays the information users need most throughout the day, an enhanced Workout app with new interface, custom High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout type and auto-sets for pool swims.

The LTE feature is the most head turning out of all which means that you can still use your iWatch without having it connected to your iPhone or keeping the iPhone near at all!

The main highlight of this watch is the presence of the LTE and Apple is only one to launch the Global Positioning System variant of the smartwatch.

Apple Watch Series 3 will be available for preorder on Friday, September 15 for delivery on September 22. The device's screen doubles up as an antenna, Apple explained, while there's an electronic SIM integrated directly into the Watch.

But here's the big question: Do these new features alter the Apple Watch's essential reputation as a great fitness tracker, but not much else?

The watch will run Apple's latest smartwatch software, watchOS4, which can send notifications to users when unexpected raised heart rates are detected.

One of Apple Watch's main purposes has always been health, and Series 3 only reinforces that mission.

The watch will be $399 (£300) with cellular, or $329 without. The new OS also allows you to pay through Apple Pay application which is available as a payment service for Apple users. Apple is also teaming up Hermes to launch some unique models with custom bands and watch faces with prices starting at $1,149.

The Apple Watch 3 features heart rate sensor which let you know the heart rate on the watch itself.

In that sense, the Apple Watch Series 3 also serves as a testament to how far the industry has come in 2017.

There is a new dual core with LTE performance that makes the phone much more power efficient. The Hermes version for the new Apple Watch has also got new designed bands.

For those who like music to motivate them during a workout, Apple has redesigned the Music app to automatically sync playlists and your most listened-to music.

Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG, BT Group Plc's EE in the United Kingdom and France's Orange SA are the only carriers in their countries to offer Apple Inc.'s new smartwatch, giving them an edge over their competitors.
