The next generation Apple Watch, Series 3 includes both LTE and non-LTE versions. The new Watches were announced at Apple’s September 12 event where the company also unveiled the iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X and Apple TV 4K.

The LTE models use a virtual embedded SIM card to save on space are able to make calls, stream Apple Music, use Siri, and more independent of an iPhone or Wi-Fi network.

All Series 3 Apple Watches feature the new S3 processor with up to 70% faster performance and the new W2 to provide 85% faster Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections while being 50% more efficient.

Other improvements coming with the new Apple Watches include “Siri Speaks” and a doubling of the storage from 8GB to 16GB.

The first Apple Watch Series 3 reviews are out, and while the device is generally well-received, it also seems the LTE model is not without issues.

When the first generation Apple Watch debuted in 2015, people often called it the Dick Tracy watch because you could make phone calls from your wrist like the comic book strip detective known for his 2-way wrist radio. Apple Watch wasn’t fully there yet, however, because it needed a nearby iPhone to actually carry those phone calls. Answering the phone on your watch could be convenient, but it was mostly just a neat demo since you had to carry the iPhone anyway.

Fast forward to today and Apple Watch Series 3 finally lets you make phone calls without carrying your iPhone thanks to optional LTE, but calling is only a part of what cellular enables for the watch. Apple Watch Series 3 can be your dedicated tour guide on your wrist with Maps, your connection to friends and family with Messages, and your always-present personal assistant with Siri — and now even when you’re away from your iPhone.

After using Apple Watch Series 3 for several days, it’s clear to me that LTE largely fulfills the promises made by the original Apple Watch. If the idea of getting away from your iPhone without being totally disconnected gives you peace of mind, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular is for you. Even without LTE, Apple Watch Series 3 delivers performance improvements and new features that can change how Apple Watch is used.
