Apple is Planning a Redesigned 'Apple Watch X' [Gurman]

Apple is planning to introduce a redesigned 'Apple Watch X' model to mark the smartwatch's 10-year anniversary, according to a new report fro Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

It's unclear if Apple will launch the new model in 2024 or 2025; however, it could be the biggest overhaul to the Apple Watch yet. Designers are purportedly working on a thinner watch case and could change the way bands attach to the smartwatch.

Starting with the original Apple Watch, bands have slid into the sides of the chassis and attached with a locking mechanism. Keeping that design the same let the bands stay compatible with old and new models, but it has downsides. People involved in the development of new Apple Watches say the system takes up a considerable amount of space that could be better filled with a bigger battery or other components. To that end, the company has explored a new magnetic band attachment system, though it's unclear if it will be ready or used in the Watch X revamp.

Other changes that may arrive with Watch X include a microLED display with enhanced color and clarity, as well as, a way to monitor blood pressure.

For this year, Apple will only make minor improvements to Apple Watch. We're expecting faster processors, fresh colors, and new bands, but little else. The new Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 will debut alongside the new iPhone 15 model at a special event rumored to be held on September 12.
