Apple Watch Series 3 first look
Is the new cellular Apple Watch Series 3 the stealthy breakthrough everyone missed?
The tech world is decompressing from Apple’s big day yesterday, where they rolled out three key new products – and one sorta noteworthy one. Top of the list? The new iPhone Ten, (or iPhone X, if you’re in Rome), the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and the Series 3 Apple Watch, which almost negates having to rely on an iPhone of any kind going forward. OK, that may be overstating things a tiny bit – maybe – but really, the new watch may have been the truly stealth breakthrough product announced by Tim Cook and his team yesterday. Think about it: the iPhone Ten, as cool and capable as it is, is at its core, just another cell phone, more similar than different than the hundreds of others out there just like it. But a regular-sized watch you can make calls on without it being tethered to a cell phone? That’s the Dick Tracy dream device right there, and there’s a reason that vision has persisted for decades: it’s the ultimate in ultimate communication convenience. Indeed, it could be argued that watches are really the ultimate tech gadget, not phones. Strapped to your wrist, a watch doesn’t get lost easily, it’s waterproof, small, and now with a cellular connection, it can do a large percentage of the most primary tasks a now bulky smartphone was once needed for. It’s a comment we heard time and again: “this is the breakthrough. This is the way it should have been from the start.” And while other smartwatch makers have tried to make the stand-alone watch phone a reality, outside of some pretty dismal products and one for kids that we actually do like, the Series 3 Apple Watch could be the device that prompts Apple’s rivals to buckle down, shrink the size, up the performance, and drive the tech forward. That’s how Apple changes tech landscapes.
