Stay connected in style with the 38mm GPS-only Apple Watch Series 3, which comes with a silver anodized aluminum chassis and a Fog Sport band. Designed for users looking for the next generation of connectivity, Apple’s Watch moves your iPhone’s apps and functions to your wrist, so you can do more while leaving your phone in your pocket.
Apple Watch connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth 4.2 and displays notifications, apps, and more on its 1.3″ display. It can also connect directly to the Internet thanks to 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The internal battery lasts for up to 18 hours of normal use and is recharged with an included inductive magnetic charger.
Enjoy the iOS apps you love on your iPhone, tailored for Apple Watch.
Leave your phone in your pocket and view notifications on your wrist. Apple Watch displays alerts from your iPhone so you can respond or dismiss them at will. Its Taptic engine gives you a gentle tap on your wrist or an audio cue when notifications come in.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is designed to withstand the pressure equivalent of being 164′ underwater (5 ATM), meaning that it’s suitable for rain, spills, showers, pools, and oceans at shallow depths. Its internal speaker uses its own vibrations to force water out once it’s clear of the waves.
Glances are scannable summaries of the information you need most. Simply swipe up from your watch face and you’ll instantly be able to do things like see what’s next on your calendar or find your location on a map.
Complications are small widgets that appear on the face of your Watch and provide quick access to frequently used data. You can customize which complications you’d like to appear, including built-in complications like weather, calendar, and activity, or complications from your installed apps.
Heart Rate Monitor
Check your heart rate at any time with the Apple Watch’s built-in heart rate monitor. It uses an array of LEDs and sensors to photoplethysmographically determine how hard your heart is working. Every ten minutes, it attempts to take a reading, which is then stored in the Health app. Certain conditions, such as movement, extreme temperatures, and tattoos can interfere with readings.
Instead of a vibration, the Apple Watch “taps” on your wrist to alert you to new notifications and respond to inputs. It gives different types of taps in different situations, so you can feel the difference between a call and a text message without looking.
Thanks to the power-efficient S3 processor and W2 communications chip, your Apple Watch lasts up to 18 hours on a charge.
