Apple Watch Series 3 LTE Models Available to Pre-Order in Four New Countries From June 8

Apple has announced through its regional websites that Apple Watch Series 3 LTE models will be available to pre-order in Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates on Friday, June 8.


Brazilian customers hoping to pick up and Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE can expect to pay 3,119 reais (about $826) for the 38mm model and 3449 for the 42mm model. Claro will be the sole network provider.

In Mexico, the 38mm LTE model will cost 8,999 pesos (about $441), while the 42mm LTE model will cost 9699 pesos (about $475). Stainless steel variants start from 13,999 pesos (about $685). AT&T and Telcel will provide the cellular coverage (via El Universal).

Prices in South Korea start at 529,000 won (about $495) for 38mm models and rise up to 829,000 won (about $774) for 42mm stainless steel versions. The carrier will be LG Uplus.

Finally, prices in UAE will start at 1,679 dirham (about $457) and will be supported by the Etisalat network (via Gulf News). In-store availability for all three countries begins on June 15.

The moves reflect the continuing expansion of Apple's cellular smartwatch market reach around the globe. Last month, the company made LTE variants of its Apple Watch Series 3 available in Denmark, India, Sweden, and Taiwan.

I'm wondering why it's taking them so long to launch this model in The Netherlands. We're usually in the second or third group of countries to get the new stuff.

While I was initially super excited about finally being able to buy one in South Korea (though I’d probably wait for Series 4 anyways), I’m kinda taken aback by the price :o
The stainless steel model has gotten a good 150 euro more expensive since I bought my series 0 stainless steel watch in Korea, a little disappointing.

a little over 3 months before the expected launch of the next one? I wonder if this means the series 3 [even if just the GPS model] will be sticking around alongside whatever is announced at a discount, and series 1 discontinued.

So the Series 4 model is 3 months away and these countries are just now getting it, what the actual ****... and they’re more expensive too!

Well, not exactly. They are getting now the LTE version. Series 3 without LTE was available in those country at launch or shortly after.

And guess what, you can't get the stainless steel or ceramic models without LTE so
