    Does anyone know if the Series 3 Apple Watches with LTE will be functional when you are not an area with LTE coverage? My neighborhood dips into a valley and I lose LTE if I'm around my house. Just wondering if the watch supports 4G.

    The watch also has UMTS in addition to LTE, so you’d think that ATT and T-Mobile should be fine. We’ll see about Verizon - it doesn’t use UMTS for calls or 3G.

    That’s a really good question, though, for a call to Apple, I think.

    I'm with att hopefully, will be fine. I will test it out pretty thoroughly during the return window to make sure it meets my needs.

    Just to answer my question above, I just saw that there is a note on Apple's site about Verizon and Sprint - they do not support UMTS on the Series 3. You need to have an LTE connection. As a Verizon customer, this is another reason for me to wait until Verizon decides to expand their coverage where I live.
