It's up to 70 percent quicker than the Series 2.

There's an option to turn cellular connectivity on and off, as well as add cellular-related information (or "complications"), like connection strength and ability to make/receive calls, to your watch face.

But it's not the first watch with independent connectivity. It will come with Watch OS 4 and will give you all day battery life. Gym machines may also be able to display heart rate from the Apple Watch on their displays so you don't have to glance down at your wrist every time you want to check.

The smart watch will also notify users when it detects you have an elevated heart rate even if you aren't actually being active. This is great for any outdoor activities such as cycling, skiing or running as it'll track all of those hard hill climbs or killer slopes.

You'll also be able to stream Apple Music while you're on a run, and use Siri to find the album or track you're after. The original Apple Watch started at £299 and there is a possibility the Watch will struggle to sell if Apple price it any higher. Heart rate monitor has been improved and Apple told it is the most used heart rate monitor.

Apple isn't alone in installing cellular capabilities into wearable devices. The Apple Watch 3 looks nearly identical to the Apple Watch 2. It has Bluetooth connectivity that lets you hook up AirPods.

To compensate for power drain, many smartwatch-makers that have already implemented LTE data, including Samsung for the Gear S3 and LG for the Watch Sport, have simply increased the size of the battery, making the wearables incredibly bulky. This means you don't need to carry your phone around.

Design: The design is nearly identical, with only a tiny, fractional change in size. The new device's display itself is a multi-frequency antenna for both LTE and UMTS.

It has a new crown color: The crown, instead of matching whatever color your watch is, will be red.

There will also be a non-cellular version starting at $429 CAD. Chinese-language Economic Daily News has broken this latest tidbit on the Apple smartwatch.

A report in August, from Bloomberg, says that "people familiar with the matter" claim that at least one type of Apple Watch 3 will be able to connect to cellular networks without an iPhone. The Apple Watch 2 has dropped to $249. Siri is also present on the Watch, enabling users to benefit from all the help it can offer. However, we do know Apple has been working with gyms and equipment manufacturers to push out updated machines across the country.
