Apple Watch Series 3 requires an iPhone 6 or later for setup; battery gets 1 hour of talk time

9 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Apple announced yesterday that unlike previous versions of the Apple Watch, the new Series 3 model does not need to be paired to a nearby iPhone for internet access, or to make/take phone calls. But it still requires an iPhone to configure the timepiece. And while the Series 1 Apple Watch can still use the Apple iPhone 5s and up to communicate with and to set up the device, the new Series 3 watch requires an Apple iPhone 6 or higher for the configuration and set up of the timepiece. The phone must have iOS 11, or higher, installed.
This means that if you are moving up from a Series 1 Apple ...

Apple introduced its third generation Apple Watch on Tuesday, and this one has a major upgrade: A cellular connection.
But the new technology will have a major effect on battery life.
Apple shared some information about the new watch's battery life on its website, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac .
While Apple says the watch can get up to 18 hours of better life, that number is pared down drastically when you factor in LTE and GPS.
While the big perk of the new watch is being able to make calls without your phone nearby (you'll still need an iPhone to set up the Apple Watch), you'll only...

The LTE-enabled Apple Watch will cost $10 a month on US carriers

The LTE-enabled Apple Watch will cost $10 a month on US carriers

9 days ago   |   By The Verge

If you're in the market for an Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular in the US, it will cost you $10 a month for service on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. (This is after the first three months, which are free on all three carriers.) Sprint is the lone holdout to announce monthly pricing for the Apple Watch, but if it wants to stay competitive, it will likely offer a similar deal.
On Verizon, adding a smartwatch to your plan usually costs $5 a month, not $10, so it's unclear why there is a price increase for the new Apple Watch. Both AT&T and T-Mobile have had $10 a month fees for smartwatches...
