Apple unveiled its latest wearable, the #Watch Series 3 during its keynote address on September 12. The smartwatch is a highly anticipated product from Apple as it will finally bring the LTE connectivity to the timepiece. All major carriers other than T-Mobile announced that they would provide LTE connectivity to the smartwatch once it released on September 22. However, T-Mobile revealed that the speeds on the timepiece would be limited to 512Kbps or 3G speeds. Now, T-Mobile CEO, #John Legere has revealed good news regarding the same.

What did Legere say?

John Legere pays close attention when it comes to the customer demands.

So, when fans criticized the move to limit the speeds on the #Watch Series 3 to 3G connections, Legere stepped in to solve the issue. He revealed through his Twitter account that the carrier would provide 4G LTE speeds on the timepiece and users need not worry about slow internet connections. He even added that T-Mobile will charge the same $10 per month that it had said it would charge for the 3G connectivity. This brings T-Mobile Watch Series 3 offering on par with all the three major network operators in the US.

Earlier, T-Mobile has revealed that it would offer customers 3G speeds in exchange for $10 per month. However, if they wanted to get 4 GB speeds on the timepiece, the users would have to pay around $20 to $25 monthly. This caused an outrage among fans that led to Legere quickly altering the rates and fixing the issue.

Apple Watch Series 3 users will still need to use an iPhone 6 or higher running on iOS 11 to configure the smartwatch.

The Apple smartwatch will not work abroad

Apple has recently revealed that the LTE watches purchased in the United States would only be able to connect to a network within the country and not abroad. This means that people who buy the carrier locked LTE variant of the Watch Series 3 will not be able to make calls or connect to the internet while visiting a different country.

The functionalities which do not require connectivity will most likely work even when the timepiece is worn outside the United States. However, in case of cellular connections, the smartwatch will stop working outside the range offered by the four major US carriers. The spokesperson did not clarify on the error message that would be displayed on the timepiece but only revealed that the roaming feature will not work. It remains to be seen whether this information has any impact on the sales of the Watch Series 3.
