Apple Watch Series 3 doesn't work, even Apple admits thatLast updated on Sep 21, 2017, 06:47 pm
If you had reservations about the improved Apple Watch aka Series 3, congratulations! You were absolutely right to have one.
"But this is a cellular watch, with the display as an antenna!" Yes. Articles said Apple did it right this time! No. Tech pundits do get things wrong sometimes.
The much-hyped "cellular" connectivity in Series 3 has major issues, even Apple agrees.
What's it all about?
Apple agreed that its latest smartwatch has problems. The new Apple Watch is not capable of doing what made many go gaga over it, this time around.
One will not be able to make phone calls or access data on it sans the iPhone. The new watch has a Wi-Fi glitch, which causes it to have severe cellular connectivity issues.
The only thing that made it better
Apple, after several disgruntled reviewers gave it a piece of their mind, confirmed that the Apple Watch 3 does end up facing LTE connectivity problems when the user tries to connect it to open Wi-Fi networks.
The firm's spokesperson informed Reuters that it is "investigating a fix for a future software release."
Wait, there's more
Reviewers also pointed out another major flaw in the smartwatch. Apple had said this watch will give 18 hours of battery life.
However, once you're able to connect it and actually make a call using it, the watch's battery lasts only for an hour.
In conclusion, I just saved someone out there from buying this watch based on hype and fanboy reviews. You're welcome.
