It's also going to support a variety of streaming content, including live sports, the company says.

There have been whispers of a bump in on-board storage, so there's more room to sync music to the watch, and then there's the feature we're all waiting for - full independence from the iPhone, so you can use it as a standalone device. The watch is claimed to work for nearly 18 Hours on normal use. EE is the sole carrier confirmed for the United Kingdom, though Apple said more are coming.

You should get about 10 hours of audio playback with the Series 3, which is nearly twice what you get with the Series 1, which Apple is still selling.

However, the company is anticipated to roll out three versions of its new digital media player, available at different price points.

Yes, Siri can finally speak back to you from your wrist. The new cellular version of the watch is claimed to run for 18 hours on a single charge.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will feature the watchOS4 operating system software which includes an updated Heart Rate app.

A similar study is also ongoing with Stanford testing the My Heart Counts Watch app.

The integrated microphone was showcased to work in tricky environments, such as when paddling through a windy lake. The high end mode of this watch is priced at $1399 which is most expensive model of the Watch. So you can take it on swims, hikes and to the beach without having to worry about taking it off.

Preorders begin this Friday, and the new Apple TV 4K will be available on September 22, 2017.

AppleApple unveiled the iPhone X on September 12 alongside other new iPhones, the Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K. Apple also announced that its smart wearable has seen 50 percent year on year growth and is now the best selling watch in the world surpassing likes of Fossil, Omega and Rolex in terms of revenue. The new watch has an altimeter and you can even stream Apple Music on it. There's also plenty of 4K/60FPS content on YouTube to help you get a taste of the format.

But with the Apple Watch 3, the tech behemoth has solved that niggle. With just two models of Apple TV now available, apple definitely sits in the latter camp.

"An LTE Apple Watch is unlikely to add more than 1% to global carrier revenues in 2018", Neil Mawston, a Strategy Analytics analyst, told IBD in an email.
