Several Apple products are expected to be released next year, and one of which is the highly-anticipated Apple Watch 3.

Rumors are rife that the new wearable will come out together with iPhone 8; however, there were also speculations suggesting that it might be launched on September next year or in April 2018 especially that the Apple Watch was originally released on that month.

"What we can be fairly confident of is that there will be at least a year between the Apple Watch 2 and the Apple Watch 3, which means we're not likely to see the Apple Watch 3 before September 2017 at the earliest," Techradar reported.

"If it arrives then, it will probably launch alongside the iPhone 8. The problem is the original Apple Watch launched in April, so perhaps we'll be waiting until April 2018, or maybe Apple will choose another date altogether. All we can say for sure is that you've got a long time to save," the source added.

According to some reports, the Apple Watch 3 will keep hold of famous features from the device released last year like the dual-core processor, Global Positioning System and water resistance. Series of latest models, colors and the straps are to be offered as well.

There were also reports suggesting that the upcoming device will run a watchOS 4 or watchOS 5 and might be powered by a latest processor called S3 which seems to be a dual-core chip.

Moreover, the Apple Watch 3 is expected to have standalone apps and a SIM card which will allow users to access their mobile data and let them call and text without their phone.

"Cellular capabilities could be the big feature the Apple Watch 3 needs to really stand out from previous models, so this is likely to be something Apple's going to try and include," as reported by the source.

In terms of its price, the much awaited wearable is rumored to be expensive and might be higher than the Apple Watch 2 by $50 dollars. This is yet to be verified.

The Apple Watch 3 is expected to have revolutionary specifications and features; however the company still has to give updates about it particularly on its release date.
