Mobile won't slow down the Apple Watch's data speeds after all

Rosalie Gross | 18 September, 2017, 01:20

Even though the Apple Watch is becoming popular in India, the numbers might not be significant enough for a carrier to justify the investments required at the moment. If LTE is not that important to you, the non-cellular version retails for $70 less at $330, plus you don't have the additional monthly fee for the wireless service.

As for charging times, Apple claims that the Watch Series 3 will charge to 80 percent in 1.5 hours and a full charge will take two hours.

Here's the thing to remember before you rush out to buy it, though: The Apple Watch Series 3 will require its own data plan. The first only has a Global Positioning System chip, but the second has the Global Positioning System chip and cellular connectivity.

The company's spokesperson opines, "The new watch will come with Apple's latest smartwatch software preinstalled, dubbed WatchOS 4, which brings improvements to the watch's heart rate monitoring and other new features". You can now make calls from your wrist, wherever you are, without the need for a phone. Apple, at the keynote, said that it will work with the same phone number that your iPhone has, and other functions like calls, iMessages, and music streaming will work seamlessly.

What will you miss if you don't get the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular? "Rogers and Fido are not now carrying the Apple Watch".

Growing appeal of iPhone in India has made Apple recognise the huge growth potential.

India's growing aspirational class holds a lot of potential for Apple which has just a 3% market share in India's smartphone market. It makes Wi-Fi connections 85% faster and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 50% more power efficient. They each have True Tone technology which adjusts the warmth of the screen to the ambient lighting. The Series 3 now comes with W2 chip which is said to help improve the battery life.

Apple highlighted a new partnership with Stanford University to use the watch's heart-rate monitoring data to learn how to discover if people have arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats). And yes, Apple is going insane with the bands again. However, if you feel that these speeds arent enough, you can always pay more.

The Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) starts at £399 and Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) starts at £329.
