Apple Watch Features
The Apple Watch Series 3 is a complete overhaul of the Watch 2. It still keeps the iconic Apple smartwatch design. The Watch 3 has two available models: cellular connectivity with GPS or just GPS. The new Watch 3 has a brand new chipset design and new features for Apple’s smartwatch range.
One of the new features of the Watch 3 is that it has upgraded fitness tracking features. It can track your running, cycling, and swimming activities. It is also water-resistant so you don’t worry about wearing it when you’re swimming. Included with the device is a heart rate monitor on the underside that comes in contact with your skin when you’re wearing it. It also comes with a Workouts app that comes with a whole suite of different workouts that it can track. One particular feature that fitness buffs like is the Watch 3’s ability to track high-intensity interval training workouts or HIITs.
The Watch 3 sports an OLED 1.65-inch screen, which is enough for the smartwatch to show you the important notifications you would expect such as time, weather, messages, and calls. The display is clear and bright even in natural sunlight conditions.
The major differences between the Watch 3 and the Watch 4 are the bezels. On the Watch 4, the bezels have been stripped away. It looks and feels much sleeker than the Watch 3.
The Watch 3 comes in two colors; silver and space-gray aluminum. The Watch 4 comes with a third color option; gold. It’s not much of a difference, but if you’re particular with color or if you have a rose gold iPhone to match, then you might be looking to get the Watch 4.
The Watch 3 comes with an S3 dual-core processor that does the job. The watch is speedy and responsive, but there are some delays. Opening a lot of apps in succession will make the Watch 3 show the swirling icon to let you know that it is loading. The Watch 4 is equipped with a faster S4 dual-core processor and it’s definitely faster.
You can store up to 8GB of songs on your Watch 3, which equates to at least 1500 songs. It also comes with a sync feature where it matches your watch playlist with that of your phone.
The common shortfall of the Apple Watch 3 is its battery life. They only last around 18-24 hours and the battery dries up when you’re in workout mode.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is still one of the best smartwatches on the market. The features and power can only be rivaled by its newer sibling, the Apple Watch 4. The new fitness features also make it a reliable fitness tracker where you can get accurate data regarding your fitness.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is currently on sale this Cyber Monday and it is likely the last day you can get this device at a discounted price. You can save up to 21% when you get an Apple Watch 3.
