Value Walk has speculated that Apple Watch 2 will feature a new design. An analyst Brian White of Drexel Hamilton has revealed that Watch 2 will be 20% to 40% thinner than Apple Watch Original.

?Concentrating more on fitness capabilities for the Apple Watch would hold us back from innovating too much, the cycles are too long. But you can begin to envision other things that might be adjacent to it?maybe an app, maybe something else,? Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview.

The Week says Apple Watch 2 will have a FaceTime camera. This camera will be able to record video. There will be a faster wi-fi chipset which can ?handle more data transfer. It will be helpful in finding the accurate locations.

Apple Watch 2 will have a microLED display, which is bright and colorful. It will also sport high resolutions. The upcoming Apple wearable will have a fully waterproof design. You can use the device while swimming.

Apple is also focusing on software. At present, Apple?s app developers are not highly enthusiastic in creating apps for Watch 2.

“On a weekly basis we’re seeing very few Watch apps, compared to iOS apps. For every 1,000 new iOS apps being built, there are 10 tvOS apps and maybe 1 Watch app,? a spokesman for mobile database Realm said. However, Apple will try hard to install independent apps into the Apple Watch 2. The price tag of this product will most likely start at $349 or higher.
