One of reviewer Lauren Goode wrote:

Considering that my Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE (both first and second review units) didn’t function like it was supposed to, I can’t recommend buying it — and paying the monthly cell fee — based on promises.

Apart from connection issues, it also has issue with the drain on the watch’s battery while making calls. Apple had advertised up to 18 hours of battery life but the watch would get only one hour on a cellular phone call.

Apple also experienced glitches with the new operating system iOS 11. For business users, iOS 11’s Mail application had problems sending mail for Microsoft Exchange and Outlook’s mail accounts.

Several noticeable reviewers could not praise the device because of a Wi-Fi glitch that causes cellular connectivity problems. While some praises the new features and gave generally positive views.
