    Has anyone found an LTE speed test for the Apple watch Series 3? The geek in me is curious as to how the watch performs.

    That’s a good damn question and something I’ve been wondering myself. I can already tell from the signal bars I don’t get nearly as good signal with my watch as i do with my phone

    I have only been able to find one app thus far, that will show on the watch (Speedcheck). Free app with $2.99 in app to get rid of ads. I forgot to test the speed when I went out this morning for biscuits. I am going out later this afternoon and will test the speed away from the house. I get anywhere from 20 - 30mbps with the phone at the house. With the watch, I have been getting about 5 mbps download at the house since I installed the app last night. I don't think the app is that accurate, as the developer states that the usage of the server depends on app purchases.

    Quick question, why do you want to know? After all, even if it’s 1 Mb/s or 30 Mb/s... it’s doesnt matter as all you can do with the watch is stream music or get calls.

    It’s not like you need high bandwidth to view videos...

    Bluetooth? If it’s anything like the podcast download apps you want a pure LTE or WiFi connection.

    On WiFi I was getting 30 to 40 down and 3 to 4 up.

    On LTE 4 down, 1 to 1.5 up - had 2 bars on T-Mobile - curious what 4 bars looks like, know podcasts can download super fast in the right location on LTE
