The Apple Watch 2 or Apple Watch S as it might be known is set to be launched soon later in 2016. Here are all the details, rumors, expected price, launch date, specifications and everything else you wanted to know about it.

More than a year ago, in April 2015, the first Apple Watch hit stores and created a frenzy. Today in mid 2016 the business is estimated to be worth more than $10 billion. Apple analyst Neil Cybart stated that the iPhone maker has sold 12.1 million units and generated $5.7 billion in revenue since its launch. Other analysts believe Apple Watch has a market share of 80% which is great given the fact Apple entered the market a tad bit late with competitors having spent a long time fighting for market share before the California based tech company entered the fray.

As Apple has denied to release official figures relating to sales and revenue, it’s hard to know the actual numbers. But there is no doubt in the fact that it is the market leader. Let’s cut to the chase and get to the juicy details. The Apple Watch 2 (S) is said to be launched in September. Recent reports reveal that the new Apple Watch could come with GPS and have better battery life and better display. The OLED display is said to be replaced by micro LED panels which are energy efficient, thinner and lighter, and produce crisper quality. Another change under the hood is responsible for making it more energy efficient. The older ARM processor is being switched with ARM Cortex A32 processor. This means that not only will it save power but the Apple Watch 2 (S) will also be more powerful and fast.

The Apple Watch 2 (S) will be able to automatically adjust the alert volume of the iPhone. Users will now be able to make calls, send messages, and connect to the internet without the help of their iPhones through the new Apple Watch. Apart from that Apple could give it the FaceTime feature as well which means it may come with a camera too.  However, all these goodies mean that it will be more expensive than the last time around. There will be no major design changes until 2017.
