Melba UnderwoodFeb 25, 2017

In addition, the Apple Watch 3 will also feature a sleep tracking, an always-on display and the device will arrive with the new watchOS 4 operating system running out of the box. Previously, athletes had to simultaneously carry their smart phone in order to record to Strava, but the new app will allow users l advantage of the Apple watch's hardware capabilities by recording their workouts and heart rate data without their iOS device.

TPK Holding has been supplying touch panels for the Apple Watch for two years.

That being the case, the Apple Watch 3 is speculated to roll out alongside the iPhone 8 in September. Yet, TPK is said to stop the touch panel production for Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 3 will use a glass-film touch display solution this time around, instead of the glass on glass solution that has been used so far, a reliable report claimed.

The looks of the Apple Watch Series 3 is said to resemble the present Apple Watch Series 2, with the Hermes, Nike+ and in addition Ceramic variations to be elective alternatives for all the energized purchasers.

It will be interesting to see what Apple's aim of innovation brings in the upcoming Apple Watch 3.

According to the source, TPK Holdings, the company which produced the panels for the Apple Watch series 2, found that the yield rates were low for the touch on lens.

Previously Apple used a technique called glass-on-glass. The Series 3 Watch would be manufactured by Quanta, the same company responsible for the original and current Watch models.

Aside from the possible changes in the touch screen, the Apple Watch Series 3 is expected to come with improved battery life and performance. Reports also state that the shipments of the new displays will happen in the latter half of this year.

The leaked images on the patent filing revealed that a small wire will be connected to the battery and on the strap to the back of the device.

On account of another report from Digitimes, it's clear that Apple is moving towards the next watch in the series - the Apple Watch 3.
