Apple announces $399 Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular, letting you ditch your iPhone for data on the go
The new Apple Watch Series 3 will let users make phone calls, stream music, use Siri, get directions and much more without the need for an iPhone to be nearby.
Unveiled at a media presentation Tuesday at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., the Apple Watch Series 3 boasts a new dual-core processor with up to 70 percent more performance.
Apple executive Jeff Williams said adding cellular to the Apple Watch proved to be a huge challenge, particularly given the compact size of the wearable device.
An Apple Watch Series 3 without cellular will also be offered starting at $329.
For the ceramic Apple Watch Series 3, Apple is also introducing a new grey finish.
