The big story here - of course - is that LTE is finally coming to the Apple Watch in Series 3 in form of a built-in eSIM. Apple also said that it has made Siri quicker on the Watch 3 than its predecessor. One new feature is that the Apple Watch will notify you when you have an elevated heart rate and are not active. You will be able to choose from over 40 million songs and stream them directly to your wrist.

Basically, it means you can make and receive calls, as well as messages, while away from your iPhone using just the Apple Watch.

Apple said it is also making enhancements to the heart rate app, and will display heart rate data on the watch's face.

Inside, it has a new dual-core processor with 70 percent better performance, as well as a new W2 chip that improves Bluetooth and wireless connectivity and power efficiency.

The WatchOS 4 will be available for all Apple Watch users on September 19. The new box will be available for order on September 15, Apple said. The new smartwatch comes with several improvements and features.

A new watch - a completely separate product, like the iPhone.

Arrhythmia, as an irregular heart beat is known, is common in older people and can be a sign of heart disease or even a heart attack, as well as a cause of strokes, according to the American Heart Association.

We're expecting a thinner, sleeker product with the Apple Watch 3, simply because the current thickness of the Apple Watch Series 2 is one of the main things that stop it being the fashion accessory that Apple wants it to be. However, there's no word yet on specific battery life numbers.

A Telus spokesperson, meanwhile, tells MobileSyrup that the company "looks forward to launching the Apple Watch 3 as soon as the systems technology is in place; it's part of our commitment to putting customers first".

Investors, betting the new phone will rejuvenate Apple's sales after a recent slump, have pushed Apple's share price to record highs in recent months.

You can not answer a FaceTime or FaceTime Audio call on the Apple Watch.

Ten years after launching the iPhone, Apple announced it was time to leave it home.
