Apple Watch 3 release date UK, price and specs: LTE Apple Watch 3 to use the same phone number as iPhone its

As expected, Apple announced a new version of Apple Watch at its big fall event today, one with cellular capability built right in.

Despite releasing the Apple Watch Series 2 just one year ago in September 2016, Apple has made a decision to amp up its game with a new device in the lineup: the Apple Watch Series 3. It uses the dual cameras and the Apple-designed image signal processor to recognize the scene, create a depth map and separate the subject from the background.

"We believe the addition of cellular will transform the way people use Apple Watch, providing a new sense of freedom since they can stay connected with or without their iPhone", says Apple COO Jeff Williams.

Watch and hear the Apple design chief talk you through all of the exciting new features of the iPhone X in a restrained and aristocratic British way that no one else in the world can.

The $399 Series 3 version comes with cellular, and it'll run you $329 without cellular, though $299 versions will also be available. That was on display in the latest Apple keynote on September 12, where there was a lot of focus on new heart rate monitoring capabilities, and only a passing mention to its Hermés collaboration. Series 1 Apple Watch is still alive and the price has been slashed down to $249.

Apple has added more fitness features to the new Watch.

The revamped iOS Watch 4 operating system will be available September 19.

The 49-year-old is now wanted on criminal charges in Georgia, which he says were trumped up for political reasons. Avakov added that he prohibited border guards and police officers to use weapon at the cross-point.

When you are away from your phone, the watch automatically switches to the cellular signal.

Apple is adding the new Grey finish option to the line up. And now that Apple Watch is also a phone ... it's going to be a killer device this Christmas and probably wasn't on any Wall Street analysts radar.

Apple Watch the third's form factor is largely the same as previous models, but with LTE version has a red digital crown to tell it apart. The company claims it will offer 70 per cent more performance, while being 85 per cent faster and 50 per cent more efficient.

Apple's watchOS 4 features an updated Heart Rate app, giving even more insight to heart rate, including measurements during resting, workout, recovery, walking and Breathe sessions.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 9 Plus will be available to order from this Friday (15 September), before being made available in half the world on 22 September, and the other half on 29 September. It is a whole new device with a display that completely covers the front, well nearly.

The new watch also features a barometer to count the flights of stairs you've climbed during your day and it will also come with Apple Music streaming.

After conceding second to Rolex a year ago, Apple Watch has risen to No. 1 in the world on annual sales growth of 50 percent, according to CEO Tim Cook.
