Tim Cook kicked off the proceedings by announcing that his company's wearable has overtaken Rolex to become the number one selling watch in the world. Heart rate monitor has been improved and Apple told it is the most used heart rate monitor. Speculations over a next generation Apple watch has been floating around the web for some time, claiming that the new Apple Watch will have significant improvements over its predecessors. The watch will allow you to play 40 Million songs right off your wrist which you can listen to via the earpods.

The Apple Watch Series 3 is exactly the same size as the original, but you'll notice a minor redesign, in that the digital crown is now coloured red (for Cellular models only). It will also be able to stream music from Apple Music. The Watch Series 3 also comes crammed with a W2 chip that provides faster and more efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. It will come with Watch OS 4 and will give you all day battery life.

In addition, Kuo also predicted that the cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3 will only support LTE, not 3G connections. Apple will also reveal the iPhone X preorder date, which should end up being September 15, and the iPhone X launch date should be September 22.

Today, Apple's 2017 Special Event debuted a segment on their latest major product from the past few years, the Apple Watch. Apple introduced the W1 a year ago in its Earpods and other headphones from Beats, and was a huge improvement over Bluetooth in other devices, the W2 might double down on those advances.

This gen-next watch comes with cellular support! The Apple Watch now has a 97 per cent customer satisfaction rate. We also reported earlier today on a new Apple Heart Study to detect atrial fibrillation, and this was confirmed in today's event. You only want to use this for shorter calls because the audio quality isn't as good as when you are talking on speakerphone on your iPhone.

Apple is adding the new Grey finish option to the line up.

Apple continues to push the bar with their Apple Watches. A call is made from the Apple Watch calling demonstration.
