Here’s our Apple Watch Series 3 LTE with 38mm Gold Aluminum Case and the 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel model overview and comparison.

With the announcement of Apple’s new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, Apple also released new Apple Watches. Similar to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the Apple Watch Series 3 does not have much of a difference externally. The Series 3 does bring a new feature to its Apple Watch and that is LTE capability.

Now, with the Series 3, you will be able to use it as a standalone device. This means you can receive calls, messages and stream music from your Apple Watch without the need of your phone being connected to an iPhone through Bluetooth. We got our hands-on with the new Series 3 38mm Gold Aluminum Case Apple Watch and the 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Apple Watch.

The Series 3 comes in three different models – the aluminum case, stainless steel, and ceramic. The aluminum models come with either GPS and Cellular or just GPS. If you want to pick up the GPS model, these start at $329 while the aluminum GPS with cellular starts at $399. The stainless steel models only come with both LTE & GPS and start at $599.

Here is most of what you get with either model.
