Apple's new smartwatch, Apple Watch Series 3, seems to be just around the corner. The tech giant is reportedly making its upcoming smartwatch independent on an iPhone. Wherein, the Apple Watch Series 3 will be more capable of doing things independently. Also, the Cupertino based tech titan is expected to roll out its wearable with LTE connectivity.

Rumor has it that the tech company will roll out its new wearable later this year. However, the Chinese publication site, Economic Daily (via Deccan Chronicle), reported that it appears the latest wearable has entered into final testing phase, which could mean that Apple might launch the wearable sooner rather than later.

As the tech titan announced its 2nd-gen smartwatch back in September 2016, Apple is expected to announce the new smartwatch alongside the iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and the highly anticipated iPhone 8 in September of this year. Although the tech company has yet to send out official invitations to their September event, considering the announcement of the previous iPhones, it is safe to claim that next month would be the possible launch timeframes.

However, following the successful testing of Apple Watch Series 3, the tech giant will kick off its mass production. The computerized wristwatch is anticipated to be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. The device is expected to roll out with some new features.

The KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, claimed that users might not be able to accept calls directly from the new wearable.
