There are two new Apple Watch models now – Series 1 and Series 2 – but when will the Apple Watch 3 come out? Here we take a look at the possible Apple Watch 3 release date along with specs and features.

Although Google’s partners have launched hordes of Android Wear smartwatches over the years, the Apple Watch is a top seller. With the new ‘Series’ naming, next year’s wearable could well be called the Apple Watch Series 3 but we’re calling it the Apple Watch 3 for now to keep things simple.

Since VR headsets are a fairly new category, Sony wants to entice you to buy the PS VR by publishing a lengthy FAQ about the device. In it, the company talks about everything, from its $400 to $500 (for the core bundle) pricing to technical information you need to know to be able to use it. For instance, Sony advises you to switch off your headphones’ surround sound, because it will interfere with the headset’s 3D audio.

There is no better way of getting fitter, stronger or faster than – well – training. And training gets a lot more effective if you can accurately measure the distance you travel, and at what speed. There are myriad wearable devices out there that purport to do this, but most activity-trackers are little more than souped-up pedometers, neither particularly accurate nor consistent.

That is not to denigrate activity trackers. If your goal is simply to nag yourself into burning more calories each day, a Fitbit or Jawbone will definitely be a good purchase – cheaper than any of the GPS-enabled devices we review here.

Kello encourages users to have a regular bedtime and wake-up time, but can also push them to get up earlier for maximum productivity. It makes use of subtle nudges like letting users only make limited use of “snooze” features, or urging them to stop looking at their smartphone at night.

To help bring on sleep faster, it also uses a pulsing light effect that’s designed to get users to slow their breathing to mimic a natural sleeping rhythm.

iFixit has published a work-in-progress Apple Watch Series 2 teardown that reveals a 273 mAh battery in the 38mm model, which is 33% larger than the 205 mAh battery in the original 38mm Apple Watch. However, battery life is equal to Series 1 models, likely because of the additions of a GPS and brighter display.

The teardown says the Apple Watch Series 2’s adhesive is “much stronger” than the original Apple Watch, and iFixit assumes this is related to improved water resistance. It also appears that Apple has added a larger metal shield next to the Digital Crown, which is also likely an improved waterproofing measure.

The PlayStation 4 Pro is undoubtedly the most powerful game console I’ve ever seen. Its GPU (powered by AMD’s new Polaris technology) is more than twice as fast as the original PS4, and it sports a faster clock speed as well.

But while Sony is marketing it as the ideal console for 4K gaming, the truth is a bit more complicated.

Rendering 4K games is something that’s still tough for high-end PC gaming rigs today. So Sony is giving developers a variety of ways to make their games look better than standard 1080p titles on the PS4, even if they can’t quite reach 4K.

When Apple does something, markets react. The company is not the first to remove a 3.5mm headphone jack from a smartphone, for instance, but it will be the only one to cause the headphone industry to pivot. The decades-old audio port was just begging to die, and today, with the iPhone 7, the jack’s death-clock officially starts counting down.

Further burying the 3.5mm jack and wired headphones overall, Apple today introduces its new AirPods to the world. These are no mere wireless headphones, but a total reinvention. Chocked full of ground-breaking technology, they are poised to be wildly popular with iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac users.
