A recent leak of CAD renders revealed the possible design for the rumored Apple Watch Pro, a high-end smartwatch reportedly designed for extreme athletes. An artist subsequently turned those basic renders into images that show what the wearable might look like in future Apple adverts.

With Apple’s Far Out event set for Wednesday morning, we’re also hearing plenty of chatter about accessories for the company’s top-tier wrist computer, which is likely to be unveiled.

Apple wants to use satellite connectivity to allow iPhone users to send SOS messages when they are in a no-network zone.

The debut of Apple Watch Series 7 will be pushed back due to production difficulties, according to an unconfirmed report Tuesday.

Your Apple Watch could eventually keep an eye on more than your physical health. A future watchOS wearable will reportedly monitor the user’s stress level. This could go all the way to warning the wearer ahead of time that they could be close to a panic attack.

The design of the Apple Watch 2 won’t look much different on the outside, but the insides have been completely reworked based on some leaked parts revealed in a new video.

To make room for the new GPS, barometer and larger battery, it appears that Apple has reconfigured the layout of its system on a chip and added a new display that looks significantly thinner.

Take a look:

The next-generation Apple Watch won’t totally cut ties with the iPhone when it launches later this fall.

Although Apple plans to add a number of much-needed features to the Apple Watch 2, a new report claims the company hit roadblocks when trying to make a major change that would have added LTE or other cellular data connection capabilities to the device.

The second-generation Apple Watch is set to adopt new “One Glass Solution” technology for its display, according to the latest rumor out of Asia.

Apple’s new wearable is expected to debut later this year and while previous rumors have claimed it won’t feature any major design changes, Apple supplier TPK Holding supposedly let it slip that Apple is using one of its new displays that could save Apple some space on the inside.
