Apple Memo says it will replace some Apple Watch Series 3 devices with something better
If you have an Apple Watch Series 3 model that needs to be replaced by Apple, you may be lucky. According to 9to5Mac, the company apparently runs out of its 2017 version of its watch. As a result, some Apple customers who expect a brand new Series 3 watch will instead receive a new Series 4 Apple Watch unit. The latest version of the device has a new edge-to-edge display and ECG monitor.
The ECG Monitor is the brand new feature of the Apple Watch Series 4 and is looking for arrhythmia that can be caused by atrial fibrillation (AFib). The latter can lead to stroke, blood clots or heart failure. Combined with the heart rate monitor, which was available from the beginning on the Apple Watch, the device has saved the lives of multiple wearers.
Today's report cites unnamed sources that state that Apple has issued an internal memo for repair staff at Apple stores and authorized repair centers. The updated replacement is for those who expect a replacement for the Apple Watch Series 3 stainless steel model (GPS + Cellular). The memo contains information about replacement devices for this release at the global level. However, it does not mention whether it is a temporary situation or a permanent solution.
We saw Apple introduce Apple Watch Series 5 later this year, and there is speculation that it will finally include sleep tracking. And we could see that Apple allows users to gesticulate through specific content with a few gestures. A patent application filed by Apple shows how someone wearing an Apple Watch can easily scroll through the information on the screen. Answering a call can be done by a few seconds of fist bouncing. In terms of design, the next Apple Watch should be similar to the current model. If Apple adheres to the tradition, the new model should be introduced in September this year.
