The Apple Watch Series 3 was launched in 2017 and still stands the test of time. You won’t be getting the new ECG feature or the Always-On display, however, you will still get features like Heart rate indicator and access to Apple’s robust health app ecosystem.
Apple Watch Series 3 comes equipped with an S3 dual-core processor and W2 Apple Wireless chip. You will also get a built-in GPS and GLONASS. The list of sensors on Apple Watch Series 3 includes an altimeter, heart rate sensor, Barometer, Ambient light sensor, and a standalone GPS. Furthermore, the device comes fitted with a brighter second-generation OLED Retina display with Force Touch. On the connectivity front, Apple Watch 3 offers WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2 and an optional LTE variant.
Apple Watch 3 offers 18 hours of battery backup and was initially priced at $379. Needless to say, if you are on a lookout for a basic smartwatch that doubles up as a fitness tracker then the Apple Watch 3 is a good bet. At $199 you will still be able to take advantage of Apple Health features and upgrade to the latest watchOS 6.
