Apple admits to LTE connectivity issues on new Apple Watch, shares tumble

New Apple Watch faces on the watchOS 4

A number of reviewers this week have complained that their cellular-enabled, third-generation Apple Watches were having connectivity issues, wreaking havoc on some the watches' most significant new features.

The new Apple Watch hasn't shipped yet, but it's already running into some issues. The company says it is investigating a fix for the problem.

The watch is created to rely less on the iPhone, and lets users answer calls, get texts, talk to Siri and access third-party apps without being tethered.

Here are the three new things than excited me the most with Apple Watch Series 3. With a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, it can make/take calls, activate Siri, send texts and connect to the internet without pairing with an iPhone, as previous variants were required to.

An Apple spokeswoman confirmed the problem with TechCrunch, stating, "We have discovered that when Apple Watch Series 3 joins unauthenticated Wi-Fi networks without connectivity, it may at times prevent the watch from using cellular".

The problem comes to light after demand for the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE appears to have far surpassed analyst expectations, and now has shipping delays of up to a month. "Poor Dick, he upgraded to the cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3". Additionally, the spokesperson stated that Apple is working on a fix. This also means that during a workout, the Apple Watch is able to divide the time that was actually in fat burn and cardio, the latter being harder to achieve with the morning walks I take.

The issue described in The Verge's review would seem to be avoidable if Apple Watch users could turn off Wi-Fi as one could on an iPhone, but the device doesn't have that option. Apple began taking preorders for the device last Friday.

What do you think of the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE issues? The redesigned workout app is a much better experience than before and lets you quickly get onto the regular workout of the day. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
