Apple Watch Series 3 review: now with cellular, it’s still the smartwatch to beat

 

The Apple Watch enters its third generation with little to prove

Leaves rivals floundering ; Cellular a worthy addition ; Plenty of design options ; Great for general fitness

We want even more battery life ; Restricted network choice

Apple Watch Series 3 review: Still a terrific smartwatch for the price

 

If you aren't compelled by the Series 4's bigger display, there's nothing that should stop you plumping for the Series 3.

Still a great smartwatch ; Ability to leave your iPhone at home ; Ease of making calls ; Improved fitness features

No international roaming ; Series 4's bigger screen sizes make it more compelling

If you aren't compelled by the Series 4's bigger display, there's nothing that should stop you plumping for the Series 3. Thanks to the upgraded watchOS it has most of the same features and is now available for a great price.

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) review

 

The future arrives just a little too soon

Incredibly small for a 4G smartwatch ; Still the best fitness tracker around ; Voice calls work surprisingly well ; Battery life holds up, even when using 4G ; Huge array of bands means you can make it your own

Only available on one carrier in the UK ; Apple Music streaming not yet available on 4G ; Not all apps work on 4G without your phone ; You still need an iPhone to use it ; Overkill if you mainly want fitness tracking

A genuine gadget marvel, but its 4G smarts just need a little longer in the tech oven

Apple Watch 3 review

 

The third version of the Apple Watch is still a great all-round smartwatch despite being superseded.

Good smartwatch battery life Clear, bright screen Fantastic fitness features

Only iPhone compatible Siri still patchy High price for 4G model

The two versions of the Apple Watch 3 impress - but the cheaper, non-4G version of the wearable delivers good value for money and top fitness capabilities from the wrist.

Apple Watch Series 3 review: Now just £199

 

4G isn't essential, but the Apple Watch 3 remains one of the best smartwatches money can buy

The fact remains, though, that the Apple Watch Series 3 in either 4G or GPS-only guise is the best smartwatch you can buy, regardless of platform, and for most people the best all-round fitness tracker as well. If you own an iPhone and you’re looking...

Apple Watch Series 3 Review: Stay connected

 

The third Apple Watch is far from an essential upgrade, unlike last year's Series 2, although this is still one of the very best smartwatches you can buy.

Cellular support ; Excellent health tracking ; Same sleek design

Not much of an upgrade ; Confusing number of models

The Series 3 Watch isn’t an essential upgrade for Series 2 owners, unless you’re desperate for that cellular connectivity to free you from your smartphone. However, for owners of the original Apple Watch and anyone who’s yet to make the jump to...

Apple Watch Series 3 review

 

Apple is good at making you want things you may not need or want in your life. Adding 4G to the Apple Watch might be another instance of this, even if it is technically great

The Series 3 with LTE does what it set out to do, but it is a bridge product. We are not in a sci-fi world where everyone wants a watch to make calls instead of a smartphone.

Apple Watch Series 3 review

 

I spend a lot of time with a phone in my face.

Cellular connection works well for phone calls, email, Siri and messages. Music now syncs more easily. Improvements in fitness tracking and added watch faces. Adds barometer to GPS and swimproofing. Same overall size as last year’s watch.

Battery life takes a major hit when making calls or during GPS workouts. 42mm cellular model is expensive, and that’s before monthly wireless service and Apple Music fees. Still requires an iPhone to set up and pair with.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is the best overall smartwatch you can buy, but battery limitations and add-on fees keep it from being a must-have upgrade.
