The Apple Watch Series 9 is anticipated to debut alongside this year's iPhone launch event, likely scheduled for September. However, stealing the spotlight is the intriguing 'Apple Watch X,' purportedly set to celebrate the device's 10th generation. Expected to bring some serious upgrades, a thinner design, and maybe even a blood pressure tracker, the 'Apple Watch X' is definitely causing a stir.
Mark Gurman spilled the beans in his latest weekly newsletter. He said the upcoming Apple Watch X is gonna give you the most epic redesign yet. Apple's been dropping new versions of their watch, but they've mostly been playing it safe. Sure, each one comes with a new processor but the performance difference has been negligible and the design has also been more or less same, barring the Watch Ultra of course.
The word on the street is that the Apple Watch X is gonna rock a new magnetic clasp system for swapping and attaching Apple Watch bands to the watch. Right now, it has the lug and release button routine, but it looks like Apple wants to level up the game. Now, this changed system will definitely make it easy to switch bands and make your watch look fly. But we can't help but wonder if this fresh design tweak might leave all those existing bands out there in the cold.
Gurman also says that this magnetic clasp system will help slim down the watch itself. Switching to the magnetic clasp might even open up enough room for a beefier battery or other components. There's also a chance that the Apple Watch X could finally include the long-rumoured blood pressure monitor. Thinner watch, snazzier bands, bigger battery and a monitor to keep an eye on your BP, oh what else does one want in life!
