An Apple Watch 2 release date is anticipated to be announced on March 21 during Apple?s ?Let us loop you in? press event, which is bannered by an iPhone SE release. ?Although there?s no confirmation from Apple that a new watch will be launched, analysts who have been covering the company?s release calendar note that credible leaks and rumors point to an April 2016 launching.
Based on its yearly release cycle, Apple is expected to launch the second-generation smartwatch this April, according to MacWorld. Apple Watch was rolled out last September 2014 and went on full sale in April of last year, about a year now that Apple analysts believe to merit a new version by next month. ?Will we see the new smartwatch soon? 9to5Mac, a credible Apple analyst, said yes, detailing that the Apple Watch 2 will be unveiled on Monday but will only ship by April.
Another valid clue why an Apple Watch 2 announcement is anticipated can be gleaned in the March 21 event?s tagline, ?… loop you in,? which may refer to a device that loops around the wrist (guess which one?). Then again, as MacWorld has put it, the loop can indicate Apple?s new campus in 1 Infinite Loop.
Apple Watch 2 Specs
9to5Mac claims a source told them that the new Apple Watch will sport new colors for Sports Bands, Hermes Bands, and the Milanese Loop for a more classy Apple Watch look. More significantly, Apple Watch 2 is hoped to include an ARM Cortex A32 processor. The new component means longer battery life, faster processing by 25%, and lower power usage. ARM Cortex A32 is designed to be more efficient but with less power consumption, making it a fit for future Internet of Things (IoT) devices including smartwatches.
Apple Watch To Even Dominate Market More
If you?re buying a smartwatch, making it an Apple Watch 2 makes sense if you consider market dominance. Apple has a track record of dominating the category by 75.5% based on an IDC report; even as Android watches start to flood the market, a dominant product means more tech and app support from the company and third-party developers. That means more seamless gimmicks can be had for Apple Watches than in any other smartwatches running on different OS.
