Apple Watch Series 3

Apple Watch was second rank in the world last year. Today, Apple Watch is the leader in the world, and customer satisfaction of Apple Watch is 97%.

Apple Watch is the most used device to track cardiac rhythm in the world. When your cardiac rhythm increase unordinary, it sends notification to you.

After relasing Apple Watch Series 3, when you look apple.com, you can’t see Apple Watch Series 2. Three different watch models will meet with you at apple.com, Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple Watch Series 1.

There’s an Apple Watch for everyone.

What are differences between them?

While Series 1 has S1P(Dual-Core Processor) chip, Series 3 have two chips which are S3(Faster Dual-Core Processor), and W2(Apple Wireless Chip). That means Series 3 is faster than previous models.

The other difference is GPS. Series 1 doesn’t have GPS. You can use GPS, and barometric altimeter via Series 3.

Another difference is Series 3 have water resistant 50 meters. Series 1 have splash resistant. Now, you’re going to ask what is difference between them? Water resistant 50 meters means that it may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, Apple Watch Series 3 should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth. Splash resistant means that it is water resistant, but submerging Apple Watch Series 1 is not recommended.

You can connect your AirPods to your Apple Watch Series 3, this means you can reach your music on Apple Music.

Additionally, Apple Watch Series 3’s display act as an antenna.

The last two differences are Siri, and display. While you use your Apple Watch Series 3, Siri is going to accompany to you with her voice.
