Apple Watch Series 3 is plagued by battery issues and LTE problems

Apple Inc

The big feature of the Apple Watch 3 that sets is apart from the others is its built-in eSIM that allows for LTE connectivity.

For its third generation smartwatch, Apple added cellular connectivity as the marquee new feature. A non-cellular Series 3 starts at only $329 versus last year's Apple Watch Series 2 starting price of $369. In one of my initial tests, I went for a walk with the phone on airplane mode, and tried to send text messages and use Siri to initiate phone calls through the Watch.

Apple replaced Lauren Goode's review unit, but she had problems with the second Apple Watch too.

But it's about the long-term and we already can use him, that's good, but we want to prepare him also, that's all. When he got dropped for Brad Jones a few seasons back he came back with some of this best form the club.

There's this moment in "Dick Tracy" where the fearless detective, chasing down a villainous gang, taps his magical wristwatch to call for backup. Unlike previous versions of the watch, it has cellular network connectivity built in. Users have reported problems sending messages from Miscosoft Outlook or Exchange accounts linked to iOS 11's Mail app. Users have been receiving "Cannot Send Mail" errors, and Apple has confirmed to 9to5Mac that it is "working closely with Microsoft" to fix the problem. The Watch also gets "noticeably warm" after a long phone call using the Watch, according to the Journal. "It would appear to pick up a single bar of some random Wi-Fi signal, and hang on that, rather than switching to LTE". The new Apple smartwatch is the first to connect to cellular networks on its own, without having to be electronically tethered to an iPhone, but reviewers had issues staying connected while reviewing the new device.

Apple confirmed that its new Series 3 Apple Watch can encounter problems connecting to a cellular network.

Apple says it's "investigating a fix for a future software release". Many experienced about half a day of battery life from the watch when using the cell connection heavily.
