If the LTE factor is covered and some of the other cosmetic changes, like the red button instead of a silver one and the new fashionable straps are taken into account, the new Apple Watch Series 3 is nearly the same as its predecessor. Instead, the carriers offering the new watch are those that agreed to upgrade their networks to support the technology first.

Stray too far from that phone, and you lose access to things like messages, Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR), Instagram, Uber and Lyft because all that information is crunched on your phone and fed to the watch.
