The Apple Watch has kept the same design since it first came out back in 2015, but then again, you guys know the phrase “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” Sometimes over the years, seeing the same design over and over could get redundant but nonetheless, people have still purchased an Apple Watch.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting that the new Apple Watch Series 4 could see a redesign with a 15% bigger display and longer battery life. The display getting bigger makes sense as it would require a larger crown making it plausible to add a higher battery capacity and possibly some new features such as better health monitoring improvements. That being said, the redesign is something unexpected in my eyes. Of course, it’s definitely welcome as it’s been three years since the original Apple Watch and Apple does tend to change things up now and again.
Ming-Chi didn’t specify which possible new health improvements could be implemented in the new watch, but other rumors indicate that Apple is looking into something that could help recognize continuous electrocardiograph monitoring to check on heart conditions. If that’s the case, it’s going to be a huge help to anyone who may have serious heart conditions and need to be monitored on a constant basis. Apple is also rumoured to be looking into something that could better monitor blood glucose levels. That tech may not make it to the watch this year given how far it still needs to go.
Kuo has been correct at times in the past, so, for now, we’ll still take all this with a grain of salt until Apple unveils their latest smartwatch at some point in September this year — most likely at the WWDC conference.
