The Apple Watch Series 3 isn’t just the latest smartwatch from Apple; it’s also the best smartwatch you can buy today, bar none. It does nearly everything you could want from a smartwatch, and it does it with design, build quality, and integration with iOS that blows away the competition. But that doesn’t mean the Series 3 is without its faults. While there are plenty of reasons to love it, there are also some things you should know about before buying one or even thinking about buying one. Here’s our cheat sheet to using the Apple Watch Series 3…
Heart Rate Monitor
The Apple Watch Series 3 has a built-in heart rate monitor that can track your heart rate throughout the day. You can also use the Heart Rate app to see your current heart rate and check your resting, walking, and workout recovery rates. To get started, open the Heart Rate app on your Apple Watch. Then follow these steps:
1.Press firmly on the display.
2. Swipe left or right to choose an option.
3. Tap Start to begin monitoring your heart rate.
4. When you’re done with your session, tap Stop and wait for the measurement to finish processing.
5. If you have any additional information you want to include with this reading, such as where you were when it was taken or what activity you were doing at the time of measurement, tap Add More Info.
6. To edit previous measurements or view them later on in detail, tap History from within the Heart Rate app menu at any time. For more tips on using the Apple Watch Series 3’s heart rate monitor, watch our video!
How to use your heart rate monitor The Apple Watch Series 3 has a built-in optical sensor that tracks your heart beat with LED lights, allowing you to measure your resting and workout recovery rates. This sensor is paired with a green light emitter that projects onto your skin to read how quickly blood is moving through your wrist.
These readings can be compared against formulas specific to age and gender to provide you with an estimated maximum heart rate for those periods of time when it was measured. Below are some best practices for setting up and measuring during workouts or other activities as well as how to interpret these readings after you’ve finished tracking them over a period of time for better results.
1.Be sure to stop or pause your exercise if you don’t want your heart rate monitored while exercising, especially if it’s vigorous enough to raise your heart rate substantially. That includes any cases where you are cycling uphill.
2.Make sure the Watch is snugly fitted against your wrist before beginning a workout so that there isn’t too much wiggle room for all those bumps and turns along the way (no pun intended). Your heartbeat will appear stronger onscreen as a result!
The Apple Watch Series 3 is the first to include a built-in cellular radio. This enables you to leave your iPhone at home and still stay connected. The watch can also now be used to make phone calls, send and receive texts, and get directions. It’s important to note that in order for the watch to have internet connectivity, it needs to be within range of Wi-Fi or a mobile data network (4G LTE).
The other new feature on the Apple Watch Series 3 is its water resistance. You don’t need to worry about getting it wet; as long as it has been submerged for less than 30 minutes, there should not be any issues with water damage. I love how this makes the device more accessible! I know people who love going swimming but were hesitant to purchase an Apple Watch because they didn’t want to risk it getting ruined by water. Now, this fear is completely alleviated.
The only thing to keep in mind when wearing the watch while doing things like swimming or showering is that there are openings around the speaker which might allow water to seep inside if you are really actively using it during these activities. But again, just being aware of this detail will help ensure your gadget’s longevity! For workouts, the built-in GPS tracks distance, pace, and time. If you’re working out without your iPhone nearby then you’ll get updates from the watch every 5 seconds as opposed to every 15 seconds.
The music app has also received some attention. Users can now sync playlists directly from their wrist instead of having to do so through their phones. And finally, those who work out early in the morning before work may enjoy the convenience of waking up gently with the alarm system –it uses haptic feedback so it won’t disturb others around you while they sleep!
The Apple Watch Series 3 is the company’s first wearable device to feature cellular connectivity. This means you can leave your iPhone at home and still stay connected. Other new features include an altimeter for tracking elevation, a faster S3 processor, and a barometric sensor. The watch also now supports Siri, so you can use your voice to control it. You’ll be able to place phone calls, send texts, and stream music directly from the watch.
And with built-in GPS, you can track your runs and other outdoor activities without needing your phone. The Series 3 is water resistant up to 50 meters. That’s enough to get wet in the rain or while washing your hands, but not enough for swimming or surfing. It comes in two styles: one with a larger display (44mm) and one that fits smaller wrists (38mm). Pricing starts at $329 for the 38mm model and ranges to $399 for the 44mm version.
