Stay connected in style with the 38mm GPS-only Apple Watch Series 3, which comes with a Space Gray anodized aluminum chassis and a gray Sport band. Designed for users looking for the next generation of connectivity, Apple’s Watch moves your iPhone’s apps and functions to your wrist, so you can do more while leaving your phone in your pocket.
Apple Watch connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth 4.2 and displays notifications, apps, and more on its 1.3″ display. It can also connect directly to the Internet thanks to 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The internal battery lasts for up to 18 hours of normal use and is recharged with an included inductive magnetic charger.
Leave your phone in your pocket and view notifications on your wrist. Apple Watch displays alerts from your iPhone so you can respond or dismiss them at will. Its Taptic engine gives you a gentle tap on your wrist or an audio cue when notifications come in.
Built-in GPS lets you navigate and get accurate workout data — no phone required. It connects quickly to GPS satellites and records distance, speed, and pace for your workout as well as the route you traveled and whether you’re walking, running, or cycling.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is designed to withstand the pressure equivalent of being 164′ underwater (5 ATM), meaning that it’s suitable for rain, spills, showers, pools, and oceans at shallow depths. Its internal speaker uses its own vibrations to force water out once it’s clear of the waves.
Heart Rate Monitor
Check your heart rate at any time with the Apple Watch’s built-in heart rate monitor. It uses an array of LEDs and sensors to photoplethysmographically determine how hard your heart is working. Every ten minutes, it attempts to take a reading, which is then stored in the Health app. Certain conditions, such as movement, extreme temperatures, and tattoos can interfere with readings.
Thanks to the power-efficient S3 processor and W2 communications chip, your Apple Watch lasts up to 18 hours on a charge.
The Apple Watch is made from aluminum and is designed for strength and light weight. The display is covered by Ion-X aluminosilicate glass, which is molecularly fortified through ion exchange. The back panel is made from a composite.
