Apple Watch Series 3 With LTE Has A Glitch

If you have been planning to buy Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE so you can make calls right from your wrist even when you don’t have your phone with you, it would be wise to put that idea aside for now. Or buy the GPS model. Why? Because the LTE model has a glitch.

Earlier this month, Apple has introduced iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, Apple TV 4K and Apple Watch Series 3. Reviews of the Apple Watch are out, and many suggest the future buyers should go for a GPS model.

It is quite handy having a watch that allows you to make calls when you don’t have a phone with you. But, it seems the cellular isn’t working as it should. Reviewers pointed out the watch has difficulties connecting to LTE. But, that is not all. When cellular is connected, it drains the battery too quickly.

“A smartwatch with LTE will, in theory, let you call a ride home when your smartphone dies before your watch does. In theory. In reality, my Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE failed at the LTE part.”, The Verge’s Lauren Goode wrote.

“Phone calls did sometimes work from the Watch, but I had to manually tap through my contacts or recent calls list on the Watch and initiate the call that way.”, Goode added.

Apple Watch Series 3 With LTE

The Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern said she can’t recommend Apple Watch Series 3 With LTE.

“A cellular device is, sometimes literally, a lifeline. That’s why I can’t recommend the cellular Apple Watch Series 3 until the connectivity is more reliable. Even then, the battery life could be a buzz kill for some.”

The Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE costs $399 and it will hit the shelves on Friday. You don’t need a separate phone number or a plan for that matter. But, you will have to pay a monthly fee.

Considering the fact LTE issue is huge, buying Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE doesn’t sound like a good idea. At least until the cellular connectivity becomes reliable. But, you can go for the Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS. It costs $329.
