Are you a nomophobic? Then, get the Apple Watch Series 3
Nomophobia — the fear of leaving your phone somewhere and consequently being out of touch. Although not a phobia in the truest sense, any active (read: addicted) smartphone user will have a story of how he/she travelled back a great deal just to pick up a left-behind phone.

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular)

Get It For:
42mm — Rs 41,120;
38mm — Rs 39,080


Enter the Apple Watch Series 3 — specifically the cellular version. You could take calls on the older Apple Watch too but only if your phone was within Bluetooth range. This cellular version has an 'eSIM' — an electronic, highly miniaturised version of the regular SIM card you put in phones. But that's not even the best part. The best part is that you don't even need to get a separate phone connection for it; it simply shares the same number as your primary phone.

Compatible with Airtel postpaid and Jio as of now, the Watch setup process adds another step of signing into your cellular account and requesting activation. Its all done within a few minutes and once done, your Apple Watch is free from the Bluetooth shackles of your iPhone. Headed to the gym or out for a walk/jog? No need to take your phone.

Calls are surprisingly clear on it. Obviously, having an active 4G connection on your Watch has other advantages too: you can have an unlimited supply of streaming music though internet radio or Apple Music. You can also send/receive Messages. And you can always pair Bluetooth headphones with the Watch too.

Visibly the only thing differentiating the Cellular Watch is the red painted crown. Otherwise all else (including all fitness tracking) remains the same. This is a great evolution of the most popular smartwatch around.
