Apple is not expected to unveil a new Apple Watch until mid-2016 at the earliest, according to Cowen and Company. Following a tour of Asian suppliers, the investment firm says the new device will likely feature a thinner size and better performance.

The Cowen forecast calls for Apple to ship 18 million Watches by the end of 2015, but at least 45 million in 2016, added analyst Timothy Arcuri. Figures for next year may actually be too pessimistic based on the strength of 2015 data, he suggested.

The first generation Apple Watch shipped April 24th so Cowen's predictions would have it coming a few months later.

At this point there hasn't been many rumors surrounding a next generation watch. Back in June, a rumor predicted that the Apple Watch 2 could get a FaceTime camera embedded into the top bezel.
