According to recent reports, Apple is set to move the Watch into an 18-month update cycle, suggesting an October 2016 release.
The new reports directly contradict notes from Mark Gurman and others who had posted that Apple Watch 2 trial productions were starting in early February. The Apple Watch 2 will introduce better battery life, new casings and a refreshed operating system.
That being said, sources do claim an updated Apple Watch will be available this March or April, including new "design partnerships" and accessories and potentially a FaceTime camera.
It makes sense for Apple to keep a longer update cycle for the Apple Watch, which remains a niche product despite stronger sales than rival watches.
