While Apple has done extensive hardware and software testing before rolling out its new products, reviewers have found a serious problem with the way the Apple Watch Series 3 handles Wi-Fi connectivity, The Verge reports.

The built-in cellular connection, a first for the Apple Watch, has been a major selling point for the Series 3.

"We're working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issue and will release a fix soon in an upcoming software update", Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller told Reuters. It opened for preorders on Friday, and should begin shipping to customers by the end of this week. With a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, it can make/take calls, activate Siri, send texts and connect to the internet without pairing with an iPhone, as previous variants were required to.

Apple confirmed that its new Series 3 Apple Watch can encounter problems connecting to a cellular network.

The issue described in The Verge's review would seem to be avoidable if Apple Watch users could turn off Wi-Fi as one could on an iPhone, but the device doesn't have that option. "Poor Dick, he upgraded to the cellular version of the Apple Watch Series 3". In addition, it's launching an Apple Heart Study later this year with Stanford Medicine to identify irregular heart rhythms.

The hangup was significant enough for an Apple spokesperson to provide Goode with a statement acknowledging the issue, in which the company says it is "investigating a fix" for the connectivity problem. "People I called via the watch said I sounded great, and I could hear them loud and clear".

If you've ever used or read up on LTE smartwatches, complaints about battery life are the norm. "The new cellular feature is great for leaving your phone behind during workouts (then taking an Uber back or stopping at Whole Foods for a refueling snack)".
