Apple unveiled new Apple Watch Series 3 models today, with an option for cellular capabilities. The upgraded version includes a 70% faster dual-core processor, new W2 wireless chip and barometric altimeter as well.
Here is the Canadian pricing for…
Apple Watch Series 3:
- 38mm for $429 CAD (Series 2 was $489)
- 42mm for $469 CAD (Series 2 was $529)
Apple Watch Series 3 with Cellular:
- 38mm for $519 CAD
- 42mm for $559 CAD
For those looking for cellular capabilities, Bell will support Apple Watch Series 3 cellular at launch, with pricing at $5 per month; Telus support is coming next “later this year.” (updated to add Bell’s pricing).
No mention of Rogers at the keynote so looks like they got shut out for the launch, but you can bet they’ll have support soon.
Also, the cellular modem does not support Band 66 LTE, so don’t expect Apple Watch Series 3 to work on Freedom Mobile, until the next upgrade. However, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will work on Shaw’s wireless carrier.
