The new series 3 apple watch with CELLULAR is a MUST HAVE. The phone watch is going to be the beginning of phones on ur wrist.

My question is do we need an iphone to run it? I could just get this with cellular. In the event they showed picking up the phone, texting, and music. 3 of the most important things that really matters to me. DOnt care for social apps, I wanna continue using windows phone for that.

Ive never owned an apple product, but do they even let these be connectable to non-apple products like android or pc?

Considering that even an Android phone doesn't work with the Apple Watch, you'll probably need a iPhone.
