The Apple Watch 3 was released in 2017, which means it is almost 5 years old. Although this model receives the latest version of watchOS, the chip used in it is much weaker than the S5 in the Apple Watch SE and the S7 in the Apple Watch 7 Series. It is also the only Apple Watch on the market to feature an older design based on a thicker body and a larger bezel display.
watchOS 9 reveals that according to Mr. Ko, the operating system will no longer support the third generation Apple Watch. It should be noted, however, that although this new version will be introduced at the WWDC event, it will be released a few months later in the late summer, which coincides with the date set for the cessation of production of this product. There have not been many reports about the watchOS 9 features yet, but it is said that this year, along with the introduction of the Apple Watch 8 Series, we will see the unveiling of the second generation Apple Watch SE. Revealers believe that the Apple Watch Series 8 uses a body temperature sensor.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is currently priced at $ 199, but support for it will soon be discontinued. It is not wise to buy it. The Apple Watch SE, on the other hand, is priced at $ 279 in stores with more features and sensors.
