The new Apple Watch 3, or Series 3, is an impressive upgrade from the first Apple Watch, and adds in key improvements over the Apple Watch Series 2 that earned a spot on the wrist of many people last year. Here’s a look at the reasons you should buy the Apple Watch 3, and the reasons you should hold off on purchasing the Apple Watch 3 right now.
The new Apple Watch Series 3 goes up for pre-order on September 15th and goes on sale on September 22nd alongside the iPhone 8. You can pre-order the Apple Watch 3 to make sure you get one on the release day, but it’s not something you absolutely need to do if you want a new Apple Watch this year. We typically see stock constrained for a month or two after the release, but with a third release Apple may have this under control better.
If you plan to buy the Apple Watch with LTE you can currently get 3 months of free service and waived activation at carriers. You will also want pre-order the Apple Watch 3 with LTE, since there is a bigger chance it will sell out faster.
