Upgrading to Apple Watch Series 3 Is a No-Brainer

Posted September 21, 2017

The new Apple watch, the Apple Watch Series 3, has one exciting new feature, but some reviewers are having problems getting it to function properly.

Apple told The Verge that a fix is coming.

Apple says it's "investigating a fix for a future software release".

The watch is created to rely less on the iPhone, and lets users answer calls, get texts, talk to Siri and access third-party apps without being tethered. It opened for preorders on Friday, and should begin shipping to customers by the end of this week. 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.

In a review of the new Apple Watch Series 3 with Global Positioning System and cellular connectivity, The Verge noticed that the watch often didn't connect to networks properly.

The LTE Apple Watch is supposed to seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi and LTE. If the cellular connected Series 3 pairs with an iPhone, talk time triples to three hours. The model with LTE connection features the same features, meaning the user can versatilely use it in any occasion, starting from work and jogging to swimming in the ocean. The new Watch appeared to try to connect to unknown WiFi networks instead of connecting to cellular, when I was out and about without my phone. So until then, LTE connectivity problems are something to keep in mind if you want to purchase the Series 3. So when the Apple Watch 3 was release this week, I was more than excited to strap it on. It also requires an extra monthly data fee, in the vicinity of $10 per carrier.

Apple Inc. shares were trading at $155.89 per share on Wednesday morning, down $2.84 (-1.79%). Soon, users will be able to stream Apple Music from the device. While it's not getting as much hype as the upcoming iPhone X, the new Watch was expected to distance itself further from its competitors in the wearables market.
