Report: New Apple Watch to feature internal improvements, same look

Well-connected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting this year’s second-generation Apple Watch will look mostly the same externally, but feature improved internal components, Apple Insider reports. Kuo said those hoping for a thinner Apple Watch will likely have to wait until 2017, with this year’s upgrade focused on “spec improvements with limited changes to form factor design.” This jives with a January report stating that the next Apple Watch would be a “minor revision.” Kuo didn’t mention any specifics about what new features Apple could include, but previous reports have speculated about the appearance of a FaceTime camera, better battery, and improved outdoor display.
