Apple Updates Its Watch, Unleashes It from iPhone

The new smartwatch comes with several improvements and features. Looks for an altimeter to measure flights and new fitness perks courtesy of watchOS 4. With new software and LTE connectivity, the Apple Watch Series 3 also comes with a slew of newly designed watch bands.

The new proactive Siri watch face displays information that users need the most throughout the day.

Pre-ordering Friday and availability begins September 11 with the starting price of $699 United States for the iPhone 8 and $799 for the 8 Plus.

Apple shares rose 1.1% to $163.30 after the company discussed the Watch.

Alongside a huge iPhone announcement at their Apple Park HQ in Cupertino, Apple has also announced a new version of the Apple Watch.

Citing an information leak, Bloomberg reported that the phone will be called the iPhone X. It will be one of three phones, including the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, unveiled Tuesday, according to Bloomberg. Apple says third-party apps will work over cellular as well, and next month it will be possible to stream Apple Music content from the wrist.

Apple Watch can further detect if you have an elevated heart rate when resting, and report on your heart rhythm. The assistant can also reply to user voice commands.

Apple Watch will still require a companion iPhone. No problem. Based on the Apple demo, the call quality audio from the new watch is pretty good. The processor also now lets Siri talk and packs a W2 wireless chip and an all-day battery life although Apple didn't specify exactly how long it will last on a single charge with LTE connectivity.

It's also waterproof and available in a range of colours, including silver, grey and rose gold. In addition, the company wanted to crow about its new Sport Loop band - a cloth, Nato-style smartwatch band that'll handle the elements. These functionalities are expected to be extended to the Apple Watch once the operating system is updated.

The watch is making changes so that it can also be used for skiing and snowboarding. The company also announced Apple TV 4K, capable of streaming ultra-high definition video to compatible televisions, bringing the device in line with competing products from Roku and Amazon.com Inc.

The fifth generation of Apple TV has released.

Preorders for the new watch will begin on September 15 before it officially launches on September 22. Movies you bought in HD will be upgraded for free to 4K.
