You need not carry your iPhones along to reply to your texts, messages, calls or receive notifications while out for rigorous running sessions, walking your dogs, exploring new cycling trails or catching new waves while surfing as Apple Watch Series 3 comes with an embedded Subscriber Identity Module (eSIM).

This allows the Apple watch to support wireless LTE connectivity, helping you to stay connected even when the watch is not tied to your iPhone.

Apple achieved this by using an electronic chip, known as the eSIM, that unlike the conventional SIM cards that carry chips in plastic casing and are kept in separate trays, is fixed into the device.

Earlier versions of Apple Watch were depended on your iPhones for a deluge of things, with their bluetooth connections that got you all the data, notifications and also made many of the Apple Watch Apps mere displays of everything that functioned on your iPhones.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will operate on a separate connection when away from iPhone but will use the same number as your iPhone so that you can receive all the calls, messages and notifications on your watch, irrespective of the fact whether you have your iPhone with you or not.

There’s a lot that Apple is doing for bettering its Heart Rate app. The newest features include a heart rate compilation that you can add to your watch face. It can now track your walking, resting, breathing, workout and recovery rates throughout the day. Recovery rate tells you how fast your heart rate drops once you’re done with your workout.

It will also notify you in case your heart beats faster than the usual Beats Per Minute even when you happen to be inactive for a period of 10 minutes. That will certainly help to detect health problems, such as heart strokes, before they reach a critical stage.

Under the hood, it comes fitted with a dual core processor that makes for 70 percent better performance with quick app launch times and smoother graphics and a W2 custom wireless chip that improves the wifi and Bluetooth connectivity and power efficiency.
