While in contrast, Ming Chi-Kuo, who is known for his accuracy, states that the device is unlikely to have design overhaul. However, he says it will come with minor design changes and contain brand new specs underneath.

Hardware

In terms of hardware, FaceTime camera would be included and as per the report by 9to5 Mac, the camera would be capable of recording video which would be embedded in the top bezel.

Pocket-Lint notes that rumours indicate that the watch will feature Wi-Fi and with a faster chipset. Data transfer would be fast and it would provide more accurate location services. It would also accompany the thinner display.

New features

One of the interesting features to be included would be cellular connectivity. It was reported that the connectivity would not be paired with an iPhone. Apple Watch would come in 3G or 4G models.

Users would have chosen a data plan and the wearable would be able to receive messages away from a Wi-Fi connection. It will also be filled with GPS functions and would also stream Apple Music.

    Oh how exciting. It’s like carrying a phone around, except it hasn’t got any advantages, and doesn’t do anything your phone doesn’t….

    Oh wait… that makes it terrible. At least it’s waterproof, like most good watches…

    Oh wait…

      Yep. Definitely going to flop, just like the first one did….

      Oh wait….

        First one kinda flopped. Sold well at the start, then plummeted.

        I have no doubts people will buy these – I just don’t understand why.

        Also, are these being sold at all outside of America? I’ve never seen an Apple watch.
