Apple Watch 2 Launching
As Apple Watch 2's first anniversary is fast approaching C|NET has compiled the current rumors that are driving wild theories about what Apple has planned for the next generation, including when everyone is expected to see it.

Accoring to C|NET, Apple previewed the next generation of its wearable operating system, WatchOS 4, at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) last June. And in the process, the company dropped some intriguing clues about what's to come with the future of the Apple Watch.

At the moment, however, the big question looming over Cupertino concerns the iPhone 8 - specifically, whether the company can deliver it during its usual early September timeframe. According to the latest rumors, that is looking increasingly unlikely.

The timing of the iPhone 8 launch will certainly impact Apple's rollout of the next Watch. And right now, all of that is way, way up in the air.

Possible Apple Watch 3 Specs:
  • Standalone LTE connectivity via SIM card
  • FaceTime camera
  • Micro-LED display
  • Glass-film touch technology
  • Slimmer, more lightweight design
  • Water resistance
  • Confirmed: WatchOS 4 operating system
  • Sleep tracking
  • Glucose monitoring
  • Respiration sensors
  • Integrated power meter
  • Smart bands
  • Improved and/or faster "wireless" (aka inductive) charging
  • Starting price around $349, £349 or AU$499
The Apple Watch hasn't been around long enough to have established much of a track record for launch timing. The original model appeared in April 2015; the second generation, which included the Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch Series 2, debuted in September of 2016.

It's conceivable that Apple could bring out the next Watch this fall, but right now it's pretty unclear. And a product introduction could come in a number of forms ranging from a major redesign to a minor, iterative upgrade. Plenty of other manufacturers will launch wearables during the second half of 2017, and it would be odd if Apple didn't throw something new into the mix.
