Nevertheless, one of the most awaited additions in Apple's smartwatch might now be included in the Apple Watch Series 3 - the LTE connectivity.

So, what can we expect of the Apple Watch Series 3 and when is it actually launching?

Apple is planning to release a third-generation Apple Watch later this year, according to a new report. The report claims that the device will be launched in the second half of the year, where it is expected to continue being manufactured by Quanta, although this year's model will also see Compal Electronics lend a hand. The information was revealed by DigiTimes, a publication which boasts of numerous sources within the supply chain of Apple. However, he added that Apple was still having issues with it, such as battery life and the form factor that would be required in order to carry a SIM card.

In 2016 Apple analysts estimated that the Cupertino, California-based technology giant shipped more than 11 million smartwatches.

MacRumors pointed out that just like a year ago, Apple could be introducing the new wearables to the public this September.
