There are very important reasons to wait for the Apple Watch 3 release date before you buy a new Apple Watch, especially with Apple announcing it tomorrow We’ll walk you through what you need to know to decide if it is worth waiting for the Apple Watch Series 3 that we expect this month, and some reasons not to wait for the new Apple Watch.
Apple delivered a massive upgrade to the Apple Watch Series 2 with a better processor, better software, improved battery life, built-in GPS support and upgraded water resistance that lets you take the Apple Watch 2 swimming. While there are many smart watches and fitness bands, the Apple Watch is one of the most popular. The Nike+ Apple Watch and other special editions are also tempting as you look at buying one or waiting for the Apple Watch 3.
Apple did not confirm the Apple Watch 3, or Series 3, yet. While the company is more forthcoming about the Mac Pro and the iMac Pro, they remain tight-lipped about the new Apple Watch. Tim Cook already confirmed that iPhone 8 rumors are impacting iPhone sales, so the last thing the company wants to do is jump the gun and start talking about the new Apple Watch weeks before the release date.
We did get a look at smarter Apple Watch software that is part of the watchOS 4 update. Apple previewed this at WWDC 2017 in early June and the public watchOS 4 release date is set for the fall. This is likely when we will see an Apple Watch 3 release date arrive next to the iPhone 8.
Despite sticking to secrecy, we are learning a lot about the new Apple Watch, and this can help you decide if you should wait for the Apple Watch 3 or simply buy the Apple Watch Series 2 that is available now and that will run watchOS 4 this fall.

You can spend a long time waiting for the next version of a product to arrive, but once we hit September, it’s a good time to officially pause buying Apple products unless you fit a specific set of circumstances. There is a very good chance that the Apple Watch 3 release date is coming in September, so you only have about two weeks to wait until you get confirmation from Apple. Here’s a look at why you should wait for the new Apple Watch and why you should go ahead and buy the current version today.
Wait if You Want Better Battery Life
Apple boosted battery life dramatically from the first Apple Watch to the current Apple Watch Series 2, and rumors indicate that the Apple Watch 3 battery life will see more gains.
The Economic Daily News, via DigiTimes, reported in early 2017 that Apple plans to deliver better battery life for the Apple Watch Series 3. This report is from early 2017. Battery life is an area that Apple continues to focus, and we could see efficiencies in the processor and display deliver better overall battery life on a new Apple Watch.
This is good news for users who want an Apple Watch that can last through a weekend of camping or outdoor activities without the need to bring the charger or a battery pack. If you want more than two days of battery life, you should wait to see what the Apple Watch 3 battery life numbers look like this fall.
Longer battery life would help unlock more useful Apple Watch sleep tracking abilities while still allowing owners to use the Apple Watch the next day.
