The current apple smart watch requires iPhone to be connected wirelessly to make calls, download music etc. the new apple watch which is expected to launch in September will be equipped with LTE chips and will be capable to do certain works without the connection of iPhone.
The LTE chips for the new watch will be manufactured by the Intel.inc which is a great win for intel as earlier Qualcomm is the only sole supplier of chips for apple but both the companies struck in a bitter legal dispute with each other so apple added Intel as a chip manufacturer along with Qualcomm.
