‘Apple Watch 2’ [RUMORS]: Released on September 2016 in UK; Features Include GPS and Cellular Connectivity


After 21 months when the 'Apple Watch' made its first successful released, another next-gen Apple Watch is rumored to set the smartphone sector into blaze. 'Apple Watch 2' was rumored to have new set of never-before spectacular features and an imminent release date in which loyal product subscribers in UK will be glad with.

New features

A report from PC advisor said, "According to Apple Insider the next Apple Watch will be an S upgrade with all changes under the Surface. The 'Apple Watch S' will feature the same design as the Apple Watch, but performance and features will be improved. There will be no major design changes until 2017."

Among of the rumored new features mentioned were front-facing camera, built-in GPS, cellular connectivity and thinner with better battery life. However, these were not directly confirmed by Apple. But the website Wareable solicited insider's wish-list of features for 'Apple Watch 2' from CEOs, designers, business insiders and industry analyst. Here's what they got:

  • Battery Life - it was rumored to replicate the Samsung Foundry's 14FF process to manufacture the chipsets to make that the watch lasted for a day
  • Design - the new watch could be circular in shape as a perfect representation of time and new materials will be added such as titanium, tungsten, palladium and platinum
  • Display - this time, they are looking into a deep integration of hardware and software since the first Apple Watch failed in this aspect
  • Siri - the AI genie was boosted this time because it can already manage Glances, HomeKit and Maps
  • Health Sensors - a non-invasive glucose monitoring was the user's ultimate wish however an insider confirmed that Apple is still awhile away from a health rabbit hole.
  • GPS - instead of adding GPS, the new Watch will have a built-in Wi-Fi chip to track Apple Watch devices through the use of Wi-Fi router triangulation technology, sounds like more independent.
  • Facetime Camera - making and receiving calls from the wrist is spectacular but an insider confirmed that this will not happen in the latest Apple Watch 2.

Released Date in UK

 Speculations are, the released of the 'Apple Watch S' will be on September 2016, no specific dates yet. In a report from Digitimes, sources from supply chain said, "Apple has stepped-up procurement of chips and components for the second-generation Apple Watch which is expected to debut later in 2016."
