Apple Inc's on Wednesday conceded its latest smartwatch unveiled a week ago has problems with its most important feature: the ability make phone calls and access data without an iPhone nearby.

Several prominent reviewers said Wednesday they could not recommend the device because of a wifi glitch that causes cellular connectivity problems.

The Watch Series 3 starts at $399 and was launched alongside new iPhone models. Unlike previous versions of the watch , it has cellular network connectivity built in.

Apple said the watch can experience LTE connectivity problems when it connects to open wi-fi networks such as at a hotel or a coffee shop.

The company is "investigating a fix for a future software release," Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette told Reuters.

Many reviewers such as the New York Times praised the new features and gave generally positive assessments.

But other prominent publications nike air max 97 günstig , including the Wall Street Journal and The Verge, recommended against purchasing the new model because the LTE cellular data connectivity did not work as expected.

The mixed reviews weighed on Apple shares nike air max 97 kaufen , which closed down about 1.7 percent at $156.07.

"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 nike air max 97 schweiz ," Verge reviewer Lauren Goode wrote. (http:bit.ly2fj8Jiy)

Apart from connection issues, some reviewers were disappointed with the drain on the watch's battery while making calls. Apple had touted up to 18 hours of battery life but said the watch would get only one hour on a cellular phone call.

Gene Munster Herren Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Blau Kaufen , a longtime Apple analyst with Loup Ventures, doubted issues with the Series 3 Watch would hurt Apple's bottom line. "That review takeaway is a negative but is not a surprise. This is the first generation watch with LTE Herren NikeLab Air VaporMax Flyknit Betrue 2017 Blau Günstig ," he told Reuters.

Bob O'Donnell, an analyst with Techanlysis Research Air VaporMax Herren Nike Pure Platinum Weiß Schweiz , said the watch reviews, paired with reviews of the iPhone 8 that were generally positive but described the phone as an incremental improvement on its predecessor Sale Herren Nike Air VaporMax Schwarz Gold , put more pressure on the iPhone X to garner good press before its Nov. 3 launch.

Apple also experienced hiccups with iOS 11, the new operating system the firm released Tuesday.

NAIROBI, March 1 (Xinhua) -- Households in Kenya have to dig deeper into their pockets to buy food and other basic commodities as prices sustain upward trend for the third consecutive month.

Families in the East African nation are spending as much as twice the amount of money they used two months ago on commodities like vegetables, maize flour, sugar, milk, electricity and even rent.

Inflation in the country has hit a four-year high, standing at 9.04 percent in February from 6.99 percent in January, pushed up by fast-rising food and fuel prices, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) latest data showed Wednesday.

The cost of a kilo of sukuma wiki (kales), considered as the poor man's vegetable as it is consumed by millions of citizens, has risen by 11 percent between January and February, from 0.48 U.S. dollars to 0.54 dollars, survey in retail outlets in the capital Nairobi showed.

According to KNBS, at 0.57 dollars a kilo, the price of the vegetable has increased by a record 47 percent from a similar period last year.

Similarly, a 2kg packet of sifted maize meal is now going at 1.2 dollars up from 1.1 dollars last month. And compared to a similar period last year, the cost has gone up by 20 percent.

For cabbages, a kilo is going at 0.74 dollars from 0.70 dollars last month and 0.48 dollars in February 2016, a surge of 56 percent.

On the other hand, a 2kg packet of sugar is currently retailing at 3 dollars up from 2.8 dollars last month and 2.5 dollars in February last year.

Houses using 50 Kwh of electricity a month are currently paying about 6 dollars up from 5.5 dollars last month and 5.2 dollars last year, according to the government statistics agency.

Only the cost of cooking gas on the items in the basket the agency used to calculate inflation in February remains low, at 19 dollars, a decline of 14 percent from 23 dollars during a similar period last year.

The result is that families are struggling to survive, with some forgoing commodities like milk, sugar and meat whose high prices are making them a luxury.

A majority, however, are buying in smaller quantities for affordability in the process spending more than they should.

The worst hit are middle and low income families that now have to squeeze their budgets as they struggle to spread shrinking incomes to cater for all their needs.

"I used to spend about 20 dollars a month on my household budget, besides food, but last week I went for shopping in a supermarket and spent 28 dollars on even fewer goods. I could not believe it when I had to buy 2kg of sugar at 3 dollars and rice at the same amount. Life has become too expensive," said Justin Burandi, an accountant at a government agency, as he captured the plight of many Kenyans.

Edna Njeru, an office administration assistant in Nairobi, noted that she has no choice but to do away with some items in her household budget, including fruits.

"Why buy fruits when you can barely afford the main food items like vegetables, tomatoes and maize meal?" she posed, before adding, "It is two weeks since I last bought fruits for my children because I have to check my spending."

Low income families, on the other hand, have turned to buying basic items in the smallest quantities as they balance their incomes.

Butcher operators in Nairobi, for instance, are currently selling meat f.
