Apple Watch Series 3 - Product Review



The Apple Watch is the most famous smartwatch around nowadays,  so the company with the latest Series 3 is not trying to reinvent the wheel. The two main improvements are an increased emphasis on health and a version with integrated cellular networking so that even though your phone is not around, you can remain connected.

You may explore the Apple Watch Series 3. You can use this as your actual phone, a fitness tracker, and even an Apple Pay wallet. And, indeed, to make phone calls while walking around the street, not bring your phone. 

The irony of getting a smartwatch means you're not less but more tethered. But you're also more constrained. This is not a complete micro-iPhone. The camera isn't there. Responding to emails and texts is not easy. You can't tweet, read articles, or watch a video. And to set it up and get the most out of it, you still need to configure it through your iPhone.

Pros

  • Simplicity of making calls 
  • Improved features for fitness
  • LTE convenient
  • Streaming from Apple Music

Cons

  • Issues around cellular activation 
  • Short battery life when linked to mobile phones

Design

Series 3 Watch ranges in sizes of 38mm or 42mm. That means the Watch is the one that you can get from Apple at the smallest size. It is quite nice and pretty, and there are no wearability concerns, and the smartwatch has always been an incredibly comfortable one.

Despite the pixel density boost, the monitor on the newest Series 4 or Series 5 is not noticeably sharper or brighter. One thing it doesn't have is the option of an 'always-on' display. This indicates that you have to tap the screen to show the display; however, it's not a big issue.

For color and design, you only have aluminum to choose from in terms of finish range, in Silver and Space Grey. In contrast, other modern Watches often come in stainless steel, titanium, and ceramic options.

Connectivity

The significant upgrade to the Apple Watch Series 3 introduces cellular connectivity that operates on all major cellular carriers in the US. Cellular incorporates data and voice where, of necessity, there is the right coverage—and the Watch utilizes the same phone number as the iPhone. Of course, the catch is that it costs $10 a month in the US.

In three stages, the Apple Watch interacts with the outside world. It scans for your iPhone, pairing it even if it's nearby with a Bluetooth link. If not, try Wi-Fi, you can't connect new networks directly to the Apple Watch, but it syncs and identifies the networks that your iPhone recognize. If none of these options are available — say, whether you're out walking — then the Watch makes LTE mobile phones, which are otherwise turned off to retain power.

Apple's latest W2 wireless chip performs this auto-switching between Bluetooth, cellular, and WI-FI. This saves some battery power, but you need to get used to it.

The Series 3 was the first clear example that it is still possible to combine additional connectivity with an elegantly built computer. Yet, you may have to purchase a more expensive model and pay an additional data charge. The extra edge of connectivity is worth it for specific individuals, but we're not high enough to feel the need.

Features

In addition to GPS, the heart-rate monitor, a beautiful display, and waterproof nature, the Series 3 were the first. Only Apple managed to pack in LTE, all without decreasing battery performance.

Calls could be dialed directly on the Watch or made by pressing existing contacts. Writing messages is also restricted to letter typing, icon tapping, or dictation.

Smartwatch features are still there, such as changing faces and personalizing them with variations. The Digital Crown also operates the same way, pushing you through the app's menu and allowing you to scroll through menus and updates.

The S3 processor, which allows the Watch easier to use than earlier editions, is also helping. On Series 3, making the switch between apps is quicker than on Series 2, as is using Siri, which becomes a more significant thing with integrated connectivity.

On Apple apps, you can check stuff, but third-party apps might not always work. The iPhone needs to be upgraded somewhere to get updates from third-party applications in the cloud so that the Watch can connect with it through the cloud. So, yeah, it always has to be powered up online somewhere, even though you're out running without your iPhone. Odd, but valid.

You can swipe down on the phone to show the most recent ones if you've done miss a notification. The slick initiative of Apple to notification help remains a crucial factor we like to accessorize the Watch.
