This year, Apple is expected to launch two other Apple Watches in addition to the Series 8. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported in his Power On newsletter. He mentioned that the three new Apple Watches would be released this fall are:
- Apple Watch Series 8
- An Updated Apple Watch SE
- An Apple Watch geared toward extreme sports
Gurman pointed out that this year could be the biggest in the history of the Apple Watch since the original model. He tells us not to expect any significant health-related sensors other than the possibility of including a body temperature sensor. Mark also expects the Apple Watch Series 3 to be discontinued after a whopping five years.
In the QnA section of Power On, Gurman said, “I think this year will be the biggest in the history of the Apple Watch since the original model. I’m looking for three new models this fall: an Apple Watch Series 8, an Apple Watch SE, and an Apple Watch geared toward extreme sports. I wouldn’t expect any major new health sensors this year, besides the possible inclusion of the oft-discussed body temperature feature. But look out for major updates to activity tracking and faster chips across the board. Also, the Apple Watch Series 3 may finally be retired.”
Last year, Gurman described the plans of Apple for 2022 in which he mentioned that a flat-edged Apple Watch is in the works, and a rugged version is also expected. He also added that a new Apple Watch might be announced this year. The Cupertino-based company is scheduled to release Apple Watch Series 8 in September or October of this year.
