CUPERTINO Apple on Tuesday confirmed rumors surrounding its newest models for Watch and TV, announcing cellular connection for the former and 4K compatibility for the latter. The Series 3 watch will have the same number as your iPhone. You will be able to choose from over 40 million songs and stream them directly to your wrist.
Next up was a focus on the Apple Watch with new heart related statistics that customers could tap into that could monitor heart rate, rhythm and Atrial Fibrillation. Apparently, the Apple watch will make you healthier as the company will spy your heartbeat and probably detect if your heart goes faster when you pass the Apple store.
It will also measure your resting heart rate throughout the day and also give you notifications when your heart rate is unusually high when you're not active. It will have smart activity coaching, a redesigned workout app, and more. You can pre-order from September 15th in selected countries, with actual availability starting on September 22nd.
Sadly, the Apple Watch Series 3 that will be launching in India will not come with cellular support. With it, you can send and receive calls and texts from your watch, use maps, and more.
Apple TV will support both Netflix 4K and Prime Video UHD content by the end of the year, plus region-specific streaming, and you'll be able to get 4K movies from iTunes.
Apple has added a dual-core processor which enables Siri to speak for the first time, so users don't need to look at the screen.
The new Apple TV 4K is priced at $179 while the Indian pricing is Rs 15,900 with 32GB and Rs 17,900 for the 64GB variant. It will be available in two models: one with Global Positioning System and cellular, and one with just Global Positioning System.
Better start saving up those pennies now, especially if you're also going to be upgrading to the newly-announced iPhone X, which just made its debut today during the same Apple event.
Apple states that the Watch will now run on a dual core processor which is 70% better than the previous generation. It is a whole new device with a display that completely covers the front, well nearly.
Apple has added more fitness features to the new Watch. After introducing the ceramic white watch material last year, this year Apple is introducing a ceramic gray.
If the idea of the Town Square being co-opted by Apple wasn't weird enough for you, there will also be tree-laden "Genius Groves" where you can have your Apple gear repaired, and Apple-branded "Avenues" in place of what we used to call "shelves".
