Today, Apple announced the new Apple Watch 3 will be rolling out several health and fitness features included with OS4, like smart activity coaching, new features for swimmers, Gym Connect and an enhanced heart rate monitor.

Away from smartphones, Apple also announced the Apple Watch Series 3, which includes its own mobile signal, enabling users to make calls, send messages and stream music without being connected to a smartphone. That's how they positioned the manufacturer.

The new watchOS 4, available on all Apple Watch devices 19 September, will display your heart rate directly on the watch face, as well as offer new measurements including resting heart rate and recovery heart rate. You can also now set the Apple Watch to deliver heart rate notifications in the event you want to be informed of when you're hitting a certain level of workout or feeling a spike in stress.

The new Watch costs $399 with cellular capability, or $329 without.

Tim Cook claims that the Apple Watch is now the number 1 smartwatch in the world.

Consumers will be able to start ordering the Apple Watch Series 3 starting on September 15, and the devices will come out September 22.

Apple is reportedly collaborating with Boston-based telemedicine vendor American Well and a group of clinicians at Stanford (Calif.) University to test whether its smartwatch's heart rate sensor can be used to detect heart rhythm abnormalities, according to CNBC.

This means the Apple Watch now beats the likes of Rolex and Fossil in the sales charts.

The Apple Watch will feature new chips and new antenna. Apple has managed to fit in all this hardware by increasing the thickness of the watch by just.2mm. In the Apple Watch's last upgrade, the second-generation model gained a faster processor, a larger battery and Global Positioning System, as well as becoming waterproof.

The new watch also features a barometer to count the flights of stairs youve climbed during your day. "Carrying the Apple Watch will be something we look at as we expand of our device portfolio".

You can not answer a FaceTime or FaceTime Audio call on the Apple Watch. While that watch won't have LTE it will have almost a week of battery life. Despite this, Macworld point out that Apple does not have a regular launch pattern for the Watch since there have only been two generations.
