The Apple watch may soon stand alone

If you’re a fan of Apple, you might be excited about their next rumoured product. The Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to be released this fall and will feature the capability to connect directly to a cellular network provider. The previous versions of the Apple watch needed to be synced to your iPhone first.

This new feature will make the Apple watch an independent product that can make calls, send messages, browse online, and much more. It essentially becomes a smaller version of your phone that you can wear on your wrist.

The first Apple watch was launched in the fall of 2014 and since then Apple has continuously [been working]WORKED on improvements, including improving battery life and other basic design functions. The new Apple watch may also have the functionality of Siri, and the ability to sync wirelessly to items such as smart gym equipment.

The Apple watches will be equipped with Intel powered LTE chips that enables this free function and non-dependence on iPhones. According to a Bloomberg report, this smart watch will solve a lot of the previous issues that users have had since the initial product launch. Apple CEO Tim Cook stated that this smartwatch is by far the best selling on the market and is only a small percent of Apple’s revenue.

On a larger scale, Apple ranks third when facing competition from cheaper smart wearables such as Fitbit. However, if the Apple watch has the capability of being a stand-alone device, it can boost product sales, as this will add another dimension in terms of product capability.

On such a device, battery life would be an important issue and that is why Apple is already improving the standing battery life issue. The complete revamp of the Apple watch aims to make the product more appealing to Apple customers while offering something completely different.
