The Apple Watch Series 3 finally completes the picture of what a wearable device should be, thanks to the addition of a cellular LTE radio. Now the smartwatch can stay connected on its own, letting you stream music, send texts, or share heartbeats wherever you are, iPhone or no iPhone. Constant connectivity, after all, is the dream for any “smart” device.
The price of that dream? If you believe Apple, it starts at $399. But when it comes to cellular connectivity, Apple isn’t the only one who gets a piece of the action.
