Lost among all the annual speculation on the Next Gen Apple iPhones, how many people gave much thought about whether Apple would release the next generation of Apple Watches.  The answer is an affirmative 'Yes', as Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 3, complete with a 70 percent faster dual-core processor, a new wireless chip, GPS, and one model with built-in cellular.

From release/information:

Featuring Streaming Music, Faster Dual-Core Processor, and watchOS 4

Cupertino, California -- Apple today introduced Apple Watch Series 3, adding built-in cellular to the world's number one watch.  Whether users are out for a run, at the pool, or just trying to be more active throughout their day, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows them to stay connected, make calls, receive texts, and more, even without iPhone nearby.  The third-generation Apple Watch is an amazing health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance to 50 meters, and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation.  Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both featuring a 70 percent faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.
