With the new Apple Watch, users become more independent of the smartphone. The WatchSeries 3 is equipped with a mobile radio unit. The display functions as an antenna for UMTS and LTE frequencies. There is no SIM card. Instead, a virtual SIM is downloaded. Even without an iPhone, the user remains accessible. Phone calls and short messages are available.

Apple demonstrated this at the performance at the new Apple headquarters. The voice quality was not as good as a phone call with a smartphone. If you want to use this, you have to deal with the combination of eSIM and Multi-SIM, which is probably not possible for every provider.

Also new is the possibility of height detection, which allows the watch to recognize when its wearer steps climb. The new models are designed to withstand up to 18 hours of typical mobile use. The Series 3 is recognizable by the red digital crown. The size difference of the Smartwatch to the previous version is hardly visible; it is offered as usual in different colors.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is to be ordered from the 15th of September and a week later, on the 22nd of September. to be in business.
