Apple Watch Series 2, which was unveiled in 2016, followed the huge success of the first model. With the Apple Watch 2, Apple finally turned its wearable device into a useful and powerful item that allows you to do a lot of things right on your wrist.
Last year, Apple debuted the third generation Apple Watch after relentless rumors and reports. The Apple Watch 3 marks the first Apple’s wearable to feature LTE functionality.
