Watch Series 3 has LTE connectivity problems: reviewers

Problems with Apple watch connectivity cropped up on three different pre-production models, across two states and on two different carriers, Stern said.

Apple said the watch can experience LTE connectivity problems when it connects to open wi-fi networks that require a login screen, such as at a hotel or a coffee shop. The company says it is investigating a fix for the problem.

Apple's new Series 3 smartwatch begins dispatching this Friday, and the greatest element change between a year ago's model and this new Watch is that it has worked in cell capacities.

The LTE-equipped version of the Apple Watch Series 3 treats cellular as a sort of last resort, connecting only if you choose not to pair the device with an iPhone over Bluetooth or use a Wi-Fi network first.

The Apple Watch Series 3 has been available for pre-orders since September 15 and will go on sale starting September 22 in various countries including the United States, the UK, Australia, Germany. Series 3 should feature built-in cellular connection.

The watch is created to rely less on the iPhone, and lets users answer calls, get texts, talk to Siri and access third-party apps without being tethered.

It should come as little surprise that Apple's claim of all day battery life is rather put to the test in the real world.

The latest watch also has a bigger focus on fitness and health. Although the device is nearly precisely the same dimensions and weight as earlier iterations, Apple decided to make the circle inside the watch's side dial bright red. In one of my initial tests, I went for a walk with the phone on airplane mode, and tried to send text messages and use Siri to initiate phone calls through the Watch. All eyes are more or less on the iPhone X, but the new watches and incremental iPhone updates still represent a critical part of Apple's upcoming growth. "This is the first-generation watch with LTE", he told Reuters.
