Apple is set to launch at least three new iPhone models at its fall event in September. The company is rumored to launch three new models with design similar to that of existing iPhone X later this year.

Now, upcoming Apple Watch 4 models and several older variants of smartwatch models have been certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission in Russia. The Apple Watch models certified by EEC body state that there is a 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch Edition with model numbers A1816 and A1817 respectively. There are A1802 and A1803, that are described as Apple Watch Series 1 with 38mm and 42mm, respectively.

The listing, first spotted by Nashville Chatter, shows 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 with model numbers A1757 and A1758 respectively. There are two models with model number A1858 and A1859 being certified which are likely the 38mm Apple Watch Series 1 and 42mm Apple Watch Series 2. The A1975, A1976, A1977, A1978, A2007 and A2008 certified by the Russian authority are the unidentified models of the Apple Watch.

Since Apple is expected to launch these new models of the Apple Watch in September, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the devices are being registered around the world. The rumors indicate that Apple Watch Series 4 will run watchOS 5, which is expected to include enhanced health-tracking features.

The watchOS 5 will also bring new walkie-talkie feature alongside support for podcast app. The leaks so far indicate the Apple Watch Series 4 will pack a larger battery and might come equipped with microLED display instead of OLED screen found on existing models. It is also said to arrive in larger 1.57-inch and 1.78-inch form factor. The Series 4 is expected to pack 1GB of RAM and use an updated Apple S4 processor.
