Apple Watch is a line of smartwatches designed, developed, marketed and sold by Apple Inc. It incorporates fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities with integration with iOS and other Apple products and services. Apple Watch uses a wireless connection to an iPhone to perform functions such as calling and texting and can independently connect to a Wi-Fi network for some tasks. Series 3 and later LTE Apple Watches can independently connect to a mobile network, largely obviating the need for an iPhone after initial setup. First-generation and Series 1 and 2 Apple Watches require an iPhone 5 or later with iOS 10 or later; Series 3 and later LTE models require an iPhone 6 or later with iOS 11 or later.
