Apple Watch Series 3 Reviews Uncover Connectivity and Battery Problems

Apple Inc

The Apple Watch Series 3 seems to suffer choppy cellular service as the smartwatch has been found automatically connecting to unknown Wi-Fi networks instead of connecting to cellular network, based on an initial review by The Verge. "We are investigating a fix for a future software release".

It's possible Apple fixes this before the Apple Watch Series 3 begins shipping to customers on Friday.

But in reviews out today, some critics report the watch has crippling connectivity problems, including dropped or choppy calls and issues connecting with Siri, Apple's voice assistant. If you haven't ordered one yet, it's probably best to hold off, or opt for the non-cellular version, which includes the other Series 3 benefits like a faster processor and barometric altimeter. Apple stock fell more than 1% in early trading Wednesday, and is down 0.4% in the past month, as the S&P 500 index has gained 3.3%. Though the Apple Watch 3 can only manage an hour of talk time, Apple is touting it as a way to maintain data and voice connectivity for short periods of time in situations not conducive to using a smartphone.

With no hint of when the fix will be issued, this is something that's surely going to be a concern for anyone who has placed an order and is now waiting for their new Apple Watch to arrive.

To work around it, users can get their phone to "forget" the network.

The tech giant unveiled the Series 3 last week, alongside the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

If you've ever used or read up on LTE smartwatches, complaints about battery life are the norm.

Another fairly positive review came from Buzzfeed's Nicole Nguyen, who declared the Apple Watch Series 3 the "best smartwatch I've ever used" but explained that since most wearables were pretty terrible, that wasn't a great compliment. "People I called via the watch said I sounded great, and I could hear them loud and clear". "The new cellular feature is great for leaving your phone behind during workouts (then taking an Uber back or stopping at Whole Foods for a refueling snack)".
