Apple to Release 'S' Version of the Apple Watch With Upgraded Processor in March [Analyst]

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is predicting that Apple will launch an 'S' version of the Apple Watch this spring, bringing an upgraded processor and battery.

Apple Watch: expect more of an "S" version with similar design, upgraded components including processor[,] battery, new band styles. Unlikely to have a wireless radio, which would allow standalone (i.e. decoupled from iPhone).

The idea is similar to Apple's release cycle for the iPhone. A major design upgrade is usually followed by a relatively minor internal upgrade. While it seems logical, previous reports have suggested that Apple only plans to unveil new bands and software for the smartwatch.

Do you think its too early for Apple to start upgrading components of its Apple Watch? Let us know what you think in the comments and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Not too early for design except for the bands. It's too early to change band interface design. Because bands cost so much they should not change this for about 3 years.

There should be a free upgrade for current Apple Watch users or at least a $50 dollar trade in cus seriously if they gonna do this like the iPhone they will lose a lot of market share

The watch really needs more power. Its stupid annoyingly slow and unrespostive at times. Still... i think its too soon for a new one

What do you mean? You don't question when iPhone comes out every year, but you do for the watch? OK.
