Apple Watch 2 will reportedly be unveiled alongside MacBook Pro 2016 on Sept. 7.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that Apple Watch 2 will be a GPS-enabled smartwatch. It will have a TSMC-built processor, improved waterproofing, and a barometer sensor. The screen size of Watch 2 will remain the same. The battery capacity will be better.
According to Forbes, Apple Watch 2 will not have LTE connectivity, but will pack a new Wi-Fi chip, which can perform multiple tasks like email, messages and so on over Wifi without an iPhone.
Below are the other rumored features of the Apple Watch 2:
The device will have a digital camera. ?A compact digital camera that includes an image sensor such as a CMOS sensor and optical components (e.g. lenses) arranged to focus an image onto the image sensor, along with control logic operable to use the imaging components to capture and ?store still and/or video images,? the patent reads. ?
On another patent, Apple has mentioned about the magnetic wristband. ?In one configuration the wristband is magnetically coupled around a user?s wrist. In another configuration the magnetic wristband can be magnetically coupled around an electronic device to which it is attached.? The rumored wristband will look like Milanese loop version and leather version.
Apple?s third patent has teased that it will be an electronic device which can transmit one or more alerts regarding the detected occurrence to at least one other electronic device. There will be news sensors in Apple Watch 2 in order to send alerts when the wearer is in trouble. It can help the user during the time of accidents, heart attack, and other emergencies. The alert message will go to the user?s family members and if the device is not able to detect the heart rate it will directly call 911(emergency service) or any other emergency service for immediate help.
Lastly, the French fashion house, Herm?s is making Apple Watch straps. Those straps will be available in five colors ? white, sapphire blue, peacock blue and fire orange, the traditional Herm?s color.
