Apple Watch Series 3 display will be using a second-generation OLED Retina technology. Force Touch support, screen resolution 312 × 390 pixels. The display will be covered with the sapphire crystal (models with stainless steel and ceramic body), and with the Ion-X glass (models with aluminum body).
Definitely Apple will increase the productivity rate of their smartwatch for the information processing from the new sensors that will be acquired by Apple Watch 3, as well as for the new software, which becomes more and more demanding on the hardware productivity rate every year. Apple Watch Series 3 will be based on SoC-platform Apple S3 with the dual-core processor, which will be faster and smarter than S2. Also Apple Watch Series 3 can get 2 GB of RAM, versus 1 GB of its predecessor.
Smartwatch operating time will increase. Previous Apple Watch models work in a mixed mode approximately 1 day. Apple Watch Series 3 will get a new battery, which could operate half a day longer.
Apple Watch Series 3 will have Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, a barometer, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, an ambient light sensor and a cardiac activity sensor. Also Apple Watch Series 3 will be 50m-depth-water-resistant like the previous model.
The most expected Apple Watch Series 3 update could be a built-in camera. It was rumored to appear in the Series 2, but perhaps Apple decided to leave this update for future models. This time Apple Watch Series 3 is rumored to have a FaceTime 1,2 MP camera for video-calls. The camera will be used not only for video-calls but also for making selfies. The main task for Apple is to find a place for this camera.
Video review Apple Watch Series 3
This is a cool video concept for Apple Watch Series 3 with a large display. Perhaps such smartwatches would be the best solution. This large screen is perfect for watching movies, reading books, browsing the tests cheat notes. However, unfortunately, this is just a concept.
When will Apple Watch Series 3 come out?
Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 release dates are 1.5 year apart. First Apple Watch came out in March 2015, and second one – in September 2016. When to expect the third model? Will Apple Watch Series 3 come out 1.5 year later, in March 2018? Whether Apple will decide to release its new model together with a new iPhone in September is still unknown. We definitely shouldn’t expect Series 3 before 2018. Therefore, the estimated Apple Watch Series 3 release date is 2018.
How much will Apple Watch Series 3 cost?
It’s highly unlikely that Apple Watch price will increase, everything remains as it is, and nothing changes. New smartwatch model will have the same price as the previous one did when it came out. And the price for Series 2 is expected to drop.
Apple Watch Series 3 expected price in the USA:
Sport – from 369 USD
Steel – from 549 USD
Edition – 1249 USD
Apple Watch Series 3 price will vary depending on the model – its color, its material and the complete straps.
All prices are approximate and are calculated according to the current Apple Watch Series 2 prices. Apple Watch Series 3 price seams to remain on the previous models’ price level, because Apple is well-known for its policy: new product model price is the same as for the previous model on its presentation day, and the previous one becomes cheaper.
