The Apple Watch Series 6 was recently spotted online in Eurasian Economic Commission filings ahead of its original release scheduled in September. A French site Consomac spotted four different models of the upcoming watch registered in the Eurasian database. The four models, expected to be standard variants, have been named A2291, A2292, A2351, and A2352. On the other hand, A2375, A2376, A2355, and A2356 are, apparently, LTE-enabled wearables.
Reportedly, the new Apple Watch has a very similar making and design as its predecessors. The body will be square-shaped with an OLED screen with curves as all Apple Watches have. The screen size might be adapted to accommodate the new watch faces coming to WatchOS7. Contrary to the rumors in the market, it is unlikely that Apple will launch a new watch with a round dial. However, it is likely that we might have a few options to choose from with regards to the band color.
The new Apple Watch may have features of its own that suit well with Apple’s goal and today’s environment. In simple terms, Apple has always focused on introducing more options to monitor health with its smartwatches which can result in features that be utilized in the current pandemic-struck world. For example, Apple may incorporate SpO2 tracking which lets you monitor oxygen levels in your blood. It might even have a bigger battery to improve on-screen time and incorporate 24/7 monitoring.
It was also suggested by 9to5Mac that the watch might have a feature to alert you when your blood oxygen levels drop, similar to the one already available for low-heart rates. The feature can come in handy for COVID-19 patients who have alarmingly low oxygen levels.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is expected to launch alongside the new iPad in the coming weeks.
