Apple Watch 2 Rumor Review: let us loop you in

Apple Watch 2 Rumor Review: let us loop you in
After a protracted development process and months of speculation, Apple finally revealed its long-anticipated Apple Watch in September 2014, with its release following in April 2015. Rumors about a potential Apple Watch 2 introduction have been heating up recently, as Apple is about to hold a March 21 keynote where it might announce a new 4-inch iPhone, the iPad Air 3, and something related to the Apple Watch. It could be the wearable's next generation, a refreshed model, or just a bunch of premium wristbands. You know how secretive Apple likes to be!

Anyway, the original Apple Watch has been on sale for close to a year, now. It's time we had a look at the rumors surrounding the second-generation wearable. This is all the intel we currently have on the Apple Watch 2's design, features, hardware, release date and price.

TL;DR


  • Design – no major changes to the watch itself are expected. Apple is experimenting with new materials for the body and straps in hopes to bring the wearable to additional price points.

  • Features – a new health-related feature will use the Apple Watch 2 (and possibly the original)'s array of biometric sensors and connectivity options to automatically send out alerts in case the wearer falls into an accident.

  • Specs – Apple is looking to untether the Watch 2 from the iPhone and simultaneously increase its performance and battery life, addressing common user complaints about the original device. There's a strong possibility for the addition of a FaceTime video camera.

  • Release date and price – Analyst reports and industry talk are pointing at a Summer or Fall release, with a possible introduction in March. We suspect Apple will keep the Apple Watch 2's prices same as those of the original, while also introducing a new collection that falls between the most expensive Stainless Steel Apple Watch and the cheapest Apple Watch Edition.
