The Apple Watch Series 3 isn't off to a good start

21 September 2017

One of the major selling points of the Apple Watch Series 3, which was unveiled alongside the iPhone X, is that one of its models comes with 4G LTE capabilities, but the feature is apparently not working properly.

Apple shares are down 1.82% on Wednesday following disappointing reviews of the Apple Watch Series 3. Analysts say iPhone 8 demand has been muted by Apple's premium iPhone X, which will arrive in stores on November 3 after a week of preorders starting October 27. Instead, it'll try and use the Wi-Fi connection, even if it doesn't have internet.

"It announced that 14 mobile operators across eight countries will support this functionality at launch", a report by Canalys said on Thursday.

An unnamed US official familiar with the intelligence later confirmed to CBS News that the federal government wiretapped Manafort. Mueller has obtained "a flurry of subpoenas" to compel witness testimony, and has even subpoenaed a former lawyer for Manafort.

I originally thought it was a design decision not to include voice feedback with Siri on Apple Watch and I highlighted this is my original Apple Watch review.

If you're planning on picking up Apple's latest, you'll probably want to do a bit of research as early reviews raise some pretty serious concerns.

"The Apple Watch Series 3 is a decent smartwatch, especially for athletes, as long as you're willing to accept some of the tradeoffs (battery life for compact form factor, Apple's own apps vs. third-party offerings)", Nguyen wrote. "But customers in long-term postpaid deals with ineligible carriers often can not do this without incurring a financial penalty".

While Apple assures that the connectivity issue is not exactly widespread, they are continuing to monitor the Series 3 units as they become available to consumers.

To ensure the Apple Watch remains sleek and elegant, the company integrated a tiny electronic SIM and made the display itself the antenna.

Apple addressed the issues after two reviews of the watch from the Wall Street Journal and the Verge cited problems with connectivity.
