Apple watch series 3 LTE experiencing bugs

The Apple watch has replaced Rolex as the number one watch in the world. It will be released on Sep. 22, 2017, and can be ordered after September 15. For the GPS model, the price will be $329, but for cellular and GPS, the price will be $399. People in the United Kingdom will pay more for the devices.

On the Series three, users should be able to make and receive calls using their iPhones' phone numbers, and stream music from their Apple Music. Siri can now talk through the built in speaker, and the watch contains Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It also contains a new and enhanced altimeter for runners, according to Trusted Reviews.

It is supposed to hold up to 18 hours of battery life, but users can only talk on the phone with it for up to three hours when it is connected to the iPhone and for one hour when connected to LTE. When using GPS, users can expect four hours of life with LTE and GPS and five hours with GPS alone. Users can receive up to 10 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth headphones. It takes two hours to fully charge the watch.

Although the watch is compact and has most of the features of an iPhone, it does contain bugs. Even though it has yet to be released, Apple has admitted that the LTE connectivity is spotty, and the watch is trying to connect to unauthorized Wi-Fi networks, according to Fox News.

""We have discovered that when Apple Watch Series 3 joins unauthenticated Wi-Fi networks without connectivity, it may at times prevent the watch from using cellular," Apple said in a statement. "We are investigating a fix for a future software release."
