The Apple Watch 2 was already in the works right around the time after the first Apple Watch was launched more than a year ago.
In March 2016, Apple is rumored to finally reveal what they have worked on ever since the announcement of the follow-up to the original Apple Watch.
In the upcoming Apple March event of Apple, it is expected that the Apple Watch 2 won’t be the only big revelation. Besides the new smartwatch, there are rumors floating online about the iPhone 6 family growing bigger with the addition of the 4-inch iPhone 6C.
Apple loyalists and early adopters are probably a bit bummed that they’re expensive timepiece is about to be phased out (with the most expensive 18-Karat Gold Apple Watch Edition retailing for as much as $17,000). But hey, that is the price of keeping up with the latest in technology.
Shipping 3.9 million Apple Watches last year was enough to catapult the company to the top 2 spot of wearables sold around the world, just behind FitBit. With 18.6 percent of the market share for wearables, the affordable and entry-level Sport line of the Apple Watch has been its best seller.
That being said, the Apple Watch 2 is expected to be packed with even more sensors for health and sleep tracking, text messaging and email without a direct link to an iPhone, and even a built-in camera for FaceTime chats (or heaven forbid – wrist selfies).
As for the iPhone 6C, it will be a more handy, pocketable 4-inch iPhone (think iPhone 5 size). The munchkin of the bunch will still sport Apple’s A9 chip, which powers its bigger 6S brothers. Other rumored tidbits include a slightly curved glass most probably around the edges and NFC support for Apple Pay.
Looking back at the series of events in connection to the first Apple Watch, it was announced in March and was shipped out to customers the following month. Therefore, out of all the rumors so far, the schedule of the announcement and the shipping of the products are the most likely. As for the design and actual specs of the Apple Watch 2 and the iPhone 6C, only Apple knows for now.
