Apple seems to be coming up with some big changes to the Apple Watch lineup in general going forward. As revealed by veteran writer Mark Gurman (Bloomberg) who is famous for his highly accurate sharing of Apple products, Apple is developing a completely new “Apple Watch X” model as a product. celebrates the 10th anniversary of the company’s smart watch line being on the market.
In 2017, Apple released the iPhone X version to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first iPhone. So it’s not surprising if the Cupertino company will do the same to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first Apple Watch on shelves.
According to Gurman, the first Apple Watch was announced in 2014, but in fact it will not be officially sold until 2015. Therefore, the anniversary version of Apple Watch X is likely to be released by the end of 2024, or at the latest in 2025.
Gurman claims the Apple Watch X will have a thinner frame than current models. At the same time, designers are also actively optimizing the screen border on Watch X, helping this watch own an almost borderless screen design.
Apple is also expected to change the way the strap is connected to the watch face. The company will use a magnetic strap connection, instead of the current hook joint.
In addition, Apple is thinking of equipping a microLED screen for Apple Watch in the future. This is a screen technology that uses micro LEDs, helping to increase display quality, save battery and increase screen durability.
Apple Watch X is also expected to be equipped with an additional sensor to support the ability to check the wearer’s blood pressure. The watch will alert the user if it detects abnormal blood pressure, including signs related to heart problems.
However, by the time the Apple Watch X launches, there is another Apple Watch version that is also very interesting to come: Apple Watch Series 9. The product is expected to be introduced on September 12, along with new iPhone 15 series.
