Apple Watch:

The Apple Watch is now in it’s the third generation and Apple have included one of the most wanted features – Cellular capability within the watch. The built-in eSim will link with your current Sim card and allow phone, data and text services direct from the watch. Apple lead with the idea, leave your phone at home and have it all on your watch.

As this feature is dependent on support from your mobile phone carrier the cellular version will not be available just yet in Ireland. However, with demand for this service anticipated to be high, it shouldn’t take too long for the Irish carriers to roll out support.

The Health App has also received some improvements with the ability to monitor heart rates over time and the ability for the app to learn more about your routines and activity patterns.
