Ever since last Tuesday when Apple did its big reveal, we’ve been dying to take the Apple Watch Series 3 for a test run (quite literally). With its built-in cellular data and formidable new health and fitness updates, were curious as to how it would enhance our workout. We put it to the test. Below, 7 reasons why it is upping the workout game for good.
1. Better workout tracking
The watchOS 4 features an updated Heart Rate app, which means those high-intensity workouts you’re doing and all that marathon training (oh, is that just me?) will be calculated even more efficiently, including data measurements during resting, workout, recovery, walking and Breathe sessions. All in all, you can chart how fast you’re recovering to better optimize your fitness routine.
2. Total freedom from your phone
I don’t know about you, but I never leave home for a workout without my iPhone. Until now, that is. With cellular data you can make and receive calls and texts when your phone is all the way back at your pad. Goodbye, clunky Velcro armband that gives me a rash (and a very weird tan line). All you need for a run now is your watch.
