Apple Watch fails to tick with reviewers due to cellular glitch

Tim Cook

The LTE variant of Series 3 has been priced at $399 (roughly Rs. 25,500).

The results have been, well, mixed. But since not everyone can try before they buy, I'm sharing the health and fitness features I discovered in my first week of testing both the new Apple Watch and the software update so that you can decide if upgrading (or buying your first Apple Watch) is worth it for you. And BuzzFeed's Nicole Nguyen placed calls on the watch from San Francisco Bay, while also pointing out battery life is a bit of a letdown.

With compatible wireless headphones, you can stream music directly from the Watch when your phone is out of range. The day after the introduction of the device, MacWorld even reported that it will work with not only the Apple Watch Series 3, but also the Apple Watch Series 2, the original Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Edition, the Apple Watch Nike+ and the Apple Watch Hermes. Notably, this wasn't a one-off case as the replacement review unit also faced the same connectivity issues.

The Wall Street Journal's Geoffrey Fowler said this is "not the upgrade you're looking for", and noted that, while there are fun upgrades for portrait photos and augmented reality, the differences aren't enough to justify an upgrade from the iPhone 7.

There's this moment in "Dick Tracy" where the fearless detective, chasing down a villainous gang, taps his magical wristwatch to call for backup.

The Series 3 will be available in two connectivity options - GPS and GPS + Cellular.

This time last week Apple was telling the world how good their new Apple Watch Series 3 was, this week reviewers are shredding the new Apple offering after identifying it has major problems. That's the experience one reviewer, The Verge's Lauren Goode, says she had.

Apple Inc is reportedly investigating the issue and working toward fixing this problem.

The Apple Watch Series 3 goes on sale on Friday with pre-orders open now. "If you've been waiting for the right time to buy one, the addition of cellular connectivity means this may be the right moment". "At least not now".

It looks like Apple is once more in trouble from their recently unveiled products. A walk there, a walk back, checking email, and listening to music (and using Global Positioning System with heart rate for the walks), I ended up at 50 percent battery by 3 p.m. It's much more responsive, and makes changing back and forth between Watch faces a breeze.

Analysts had been expecting the Apple Watch Series 3 to get a sales push from carriers motivated to sell the watch with a supporting hefty monthly data plan. Apple already claims the Apple Watch is the number one selling watch, not just the smartwatch segments.
