Likely to be called Apple Watch S, it is likely to follow Apple s iPhone upgrade cycle for s variants. And while one would expect the second-gen Apple Watch to include a FaceTime camera and other such enhancements, it could retain the same look and feel as its predecessor. Only under the hood improvements could be in tow, such as an upgraded processor and slightly larger battery capacity.

Apple Watch: expect more of an “S” version with similar design, upgraded components including processor[,] battery, new band styles. Unlikely to have a wireless radio, which would allow standalone (i.e. decoupled from iPhone), Munster writes.
This contradicts earlier reports that suggested the Apple Watch 2 won’t be unveiled at the March event. Instead, Apple could unveil it in September alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The supply chain constrain is rumored to be one of the reasons for the delay in launch of the next-gen Apple Watch. While Apple hasn t confirmed anything yet, it s better to wait for official announcement. In case there is any truth in this, we expect more details to pour in.
