It has been a year since we first laid our hands on the Apple Watch. For the best part of this year, the Apple Watch has found a permanent place on our wrists and while not being the absolute perfect gadget, it gets the job done. In fact, I would argue that I would still pay a little over the odds for an Apple Watch thanks to more design choices, customizations, better ecosystem and generally a better experience.
We have not really heard much about what are the plans of Apple around the new Apple, we definitely know that there is a WWDC upcoming in June and there is a high probability that we would have some clue about the new Watch around then. However, in the build-up to the new Apple Watch, Forbes has published a story stating that the upcoming Apple Watch would come with cellular connectivity out of the box. Currently, the watch only has connectivity via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, but having independent cellular connectivity would mean that you do not need to carry with you, your iPhone in order to ensure that notifications on the watch are live and active. Whether Apple will also give a SIM support to the watch is not known yet.
The report also states that the next generation Apple Watch will come with a faster and more capable processor so you can assume that it would greatly enhance the experience and bring new healthcare features with it too. With over 12 million Apple Watches sold and a recent price cut on the Apple Watch Sport Variant, it is clear that the Apple Watch has fallen short of the high expectations that Apple had from it. Will that prompt a ton of changes in the next version? We will only have to wait to find out.
