Apple Watch 3
Without much objection. the Apple Watch is considered by many as the best-selling smartwatch ever released. It is a great product during its time, but but there’s always room for improvement. While the Apple Watch Series 2 did alter the Apple Watch Series 1 for the better in a few key areas, it is the rumored Apple Watch Series 3 that may offer what many of today's consumers wanted to see.

But what exactly will the release of the Apple Watch Series 3 bring? The device is shaping up to be quite an interesting one. Julian Chokkattu of Digital Trends, offers a few tidbits.

Release Date
When will everyone get the new Apple Watch? The two previous models have arrived at different times, so there is no established release date routine for Apple to follow. However, sources continue to indicate the Apple Watch 3 will arrive in 2017. Hidden in a report published by DigiTimes — which can be hit-or-miss when it comes to rumors — where Watch manufacturer Quanta's recent fortunes are discussed, a 2017 date for the Watch 3 is reiterated. DigiTimes has suggested before — as far back as January — the Watch 3 will come during the third quarter of 2017.

If the Watch 3 is coming this year, it may be part of what’s rumored to be a packed fall event, where users expect to see the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and the anniversary edition iPhone8/iPhone X. However, in recent month Digital Trends learned that iPhone 8 production has been particularly challenging for Apple. The latest rumors suggest it's possible the device could miss its target launch of September. In that event, the Series 3 Watch could surface later in the fall, or ultimately be bumped to early 2018.

This shouldn't be considered unlikely. There have only been two previous Apple Watch launches — the original in spring 2015, and the Series 2 in fall 2016. Apple may opt for another year-and-a-half turnover, meaning the Apple Watch 3 may come in spring 2018.

Rumor has it that Apple may be stepping up the health tracking capabilities on the Apple Watch for Series 3. According to a report from BGR, the new Apple Watch may be able to monitor blood glucose levels, and new reports indicate that Apple CEO Tim Cook is testing the new accessory personally. Cook has reportedly been spotted on the Apple campus wearing a prototype device, and while it’s currently unclear if the device is Apple-built or built in partnership with a medical company, reports from CNBC suggest that it’s the blood glucose monitor.

Apple has reportedly been interested in helping tackle diabetes for some time now, and the glucose monitoring feature could be a game-changer for diabetics. Around 30 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from diabetes.

Currently, the only way to monitor blood glucose is to get a blood sample. According to the report, the Apple Watch’s glucose monitoring will be noninvasive.

Smart Bands
Apple may introduce a whole slew of new functionality with the Apple Watch Series 3 through a series of interchangeable "smart bands," which will add different functions to the Apple Watch quickly and easily. That will give the Apple Watch a modular design, and allow users to add features without having to pay more for the Apple Watch outright. It’s possible that the glucose monitoring system will be introduced as a smart band rather than as core functionality to the Apple Watch itself.
