Apple Watch Series 3 Reviews Uncover Connectivity and Battery Problems

Apple said the watch can experience LTE connectivity problems when it connects to open wi-fi networks that require a login screen, such as at a hotel or a coffee shop. The company is investigating the issue and will likely come out with a fix in a future software update. The Wall Street Journal reported similar issues with LTE, also across multiple watches.

The new Apple Watch hasn't shipped yet, but it's already running into some issues. With a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, it can make/take calls, activate Siri, send texts and connect to the internet without pairing with an iPhone, as previous variants were required to.

"Poor Dick, he upgraded to the cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3". Those dialogues don't appear on the Apple Watch, which then gets stuck thinking it has joined a familiar network when it hasn't. Wired's David Pierce said the Apple Watch Series 3 battery lasted all day with normal use but plunged to five hours or less when he used the device's LTE modem much. This feature allows the users to ditch their mobile phones and answer calls with Apple Watch Series 3. Still, users could use to ditch their mobile phone to make calls thanks to the LTE connection.

The first round of Apple Watch Series 3 orders should already be on their way to customers' doorsteps at this point, and if you haven't ordered one already, the wearable will be available in Apple Stores and via Apple-authorized third-party partners beginning September 22. In fact, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon offer service packages dedicated to Apple Watch Series 3.
