Customers looking to get the updated smartwatch from Cupertino will be presented with two options – the 38mm and 42mm wrist band. The price for the former is RM 1,549 while the larger band will be RM 150 extra at RM 1,699.
There are a few colour options available on the website, as well as the exclusive Nike+ model. The new Apple Watch Series 3 boasts new features such as improved heart-rate monitoring, faster processor and better Siri support, in a case that is only slightly thicker than the outgoing Series 2.
Unfortunately, Malaysia is not getting the cellular model, which allows iPhone-free connectivity and calling with the new Apple Watch Series 3. Only the GPS-enabled model is available for order here for now. We have no idea if this will change in the future.
On a surprising note, the new Series 3 watch is cheaper by about RM100 when compared to the discontinued Series 2, which started at RM 1,649 when it first made available here.
Apple will start accepting orders for the Series 3 starting from 20 October. With the price reduction, it may be a good time to invest in the Apple Watch Series 3.
