New Apple Watch in 2017 rumored to have “improved battery life”

Improved battery life is the main task at hand while smaller improvements will be more minor and there will be no change in body style.

The Series 2 Apple Watch has only been out for a few months (out of stock for the time being) and already there are rumors coming out of China about the upcoming Apple Watch (Series 3? — calling it now) having battery life and overall performance improvements.

Chinese news Economic Daily News has claimed that the next generation Apple Watch will once again be manufactured by Taiwanese company Quanta, who also manufactured the first and second Apple Watch. Market watchers who supposedly know the plans for Quanta state that improved “battery life” is the main task at hand while smaller improvements will be more minor and there will be no change in body style. Quanta, of course, has not commented on this speculation, but that’s pretty normal for a company wanting to keep rumors at a minimum. Other rumors that may or may not happen are possible cellular connectivity and the possibility of switching to micro-LED displays because they’re lighter and thinner.

Since this is a rumor you all know to take this with a grain of salt at least until it’s closer to when the watch will be announced or when Apple actually has an announcement about the newest Apple Watch possibly shown alongside either the iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 depending on the route Apple goes this year. We won’t know until Q3 of 2017 comes around.

What do you think about Apple improving the battery life and performance on their next generation Apple Watch? Do you think a battery improvement is needed or do you think a design change is more important? Let us know by dropping your comments down below or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
