Apple Watch 2 Upgrades
Whether or not the revamped Apple Watch 2 will appear at the March event, reports say the Watch will get a few key upgrades. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is calling this the "S" version of the Apple Watch, and claims that the updates to the Watch will be minimal — just like they are with the iPhone during S years.

Munster’s sources say the March launch will hold an updated processor for the Watch, along with a new battery and additional band options. He concluded that it’s unlikely that Apple will introduce a standalone version of the Apple Watch — which wouldn’t need a connection to the iPhone to function — this March. Just as other sources have hinted, Munster believes that bigger update is due for a later date.

The next Apple Watch may come in even more color options at the rumored March event, but 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman no longer expects huge changes for the Apple Watch this spring. The redesign will hit in the fall, he claims. However, several new bands may launch, including more Hermes bands, sport straps in new colors, a black Milanese Loop band, and another one made in an entirely new material. There may be a NATO band, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet.

One apparent certainty for the next Apple Watch, though, is more expensive models. The company is exploring price points between the US$ 1,000 stainless steel Apple Watch and US$ 10,000 18-karat gold Edition. 9to5Mac suggests the material used to make the watch casing and strap will still dictate the price, and materials like titanium, tungsten, palladium, platinum, and so on may be introduced to the lineup.

Some may question the wisdom of wrist-based video calling and platinum smartwatches, but others might call them the inevitable march of progress. Whatever your opinion, Apple’s plans are undeniably ambitious, and it’ll be interesting to see just what form they ultimately take.

A new report out of South Korea, which was spotted by G4Games, states that the next Apple Watch will stick with its original design and form factor. The Apple Watch 2 will supposedly sport the same rectangular screen sizes with the same resolution, and the body of the watch will be identical to the current model.

The report claims that the Apple Watch 2 won’t be any thinner — even though the display thickness is said to be shaved down — because the battery will be made larger. Apparently, both LG and Samsung are creating the displays for the next Apple Watch. This might allow the Apple Watch 2 to be compatible with all of the straps made for the original Apple Watch.
