Apple Watch Series 3 clones your iPhone’s phone number, coming September 15

The Apple Watch has grown quickly – so fast in fact that it is now the #1 watch in the world, topping the former leader Rolex. The Watch has a 97% customer satisfaction, but it’s time for a new model.

Meet the Apple Watch Series 3. It features cellular connectivity via an eSIM, sharing your phone number with your iPhone. This means you can receive calls even if you left your phone at home. The display of the watch is the antenna for 4G LTE and 3G.

And you don’t have to leave Apple Music at home either, the Series 3 can stream on the go. A new chip (the W2) enables 85% better Wi-Fi performance with lower power usage (down to half!). The new watch is powered by a new dual core processor that is 70% faster than the one it replaces. It’s now fast enough to allow Siri to talk!

But not all new models will have wireless connectivity. The Series 3 with cellular will cost you $399, without is $329. The Series 1 remains available at a lower cost at $249.

The new watch also features a barometer to count the flights of stairs you’ve climbed during your day. With all these new features, the Apple Watch Series 3 is the same size as the Series 2.
