CUPERTINO Apple on Tuesday confirmed rumors surrounding its newest models for Watch and TV, announcing cellular connection for the former and 4K compatibility for the latter.

Apple CEO Jeff Williams took to the stage to talk about WatchOS 4, Apple Watch's latest operating system that was unveiled in June.

Tim Cook said that the "Apple Watch is created to help people stay active and motivated so they can have a better day".

Despite releasing the Apple Watch Series 2 just one year ago in September 2016, Apple has made a decision to amp up its game with a new device in the lineup: the Apple Watch Series 3. The next generation of Apple Watch is not much different than its predecessor.

The Apple Watch Series 3 starts presale on September 15 with the 38mm model retailing for $559. Heart rate monitor has been improved and Apple told it is the most used heart rate monitor. To mash all of this capability into the casing, the Apple team added an electronic SIM, a fraction of the size of a regular SIM, an antennae and a custom wireless chip that is 85 percent faster for WiFi and more power efficient for both bluetooth and WiFi. They've also added a W2 Barometric altimeter that will be useful for apps, such as snowboarding or skiing that track users during activity. Users can also ask the digital voice assistant Siri for other information.

The new smartwatch is powered by a Dual-Core processor offering 70% more performance. Watches will be available on September 22.

The event is expected to be jam-packed with Apple's newest products, with its 10th anniversary iPhone as the crown jewel. The figure just fell short of its all-time record price at $164.05 on September 1, a day after Apple sent its event invitations to journalists.

The new Watch will also benefit from Watch OS 4, which was announced earlier this year.

The wearables market has seen some ups and downs over the years and it is predicted by Gartner that 2017 looks positive with Apple leading the way. The biggest highlight of the Apple Watch 3 is that it comes with built-in cellular connectivity.
