Apple Watch Series 3 could be launching in Q3 2017

Apple Watch Series 3 could be launching in Q3 2017
A new report suggests that the next Apple Watch could make its way to users in the third quarter this year. The device would be manufactured by Quanta Computer, the same company that made the previous two generations of the smartwatch.

According to the Chinese media Economic Daily News (EDN), the two companies will be focusing on improving performance and battery life. Performance was a problem for the Apple Watch Series 2, so it only makes sense for Apple to focus on it. Battery life did prove to be adequate, if you don't forget to charge your smartwatch every night, but it could use some work too.

Another aspect that we'd like to see improved would be the design, since the Apple Watch doesn't quite appeal to everyone with its current looks. However, the market watchers, cited by EDN, failed to mention any changes to the device's style.

And despite the smartwatch industry seeing a slow growth, Apple still managed to sell 7.5 million watches in 2016, so it only makes sense for the Cupertino-based company to want more coming into 2017. However, until we get an official confirmation, we can't know for certain if and when the next Apple Watch will see the light of day.

Apple still didn't release any of their watch sales. This is coming from another source.

The world is STILL waiting. It's been almost 10 years since their last innovation.

iPhone then iPad then Apple TV then Apple Watch not enough? Apple = Innovation, the others are copying ONLY.

The only innovative product you listed was the OG iPhone. The iPad was just a bigger iPhone without calling. Apple TV was just a copy of existing products, and the Watch is just a joke, with half the functionality of watches that came out a year prior, along with a hot mess of an interface. Apple has copied ONLY for the past five years.

What is the difference between iPhone and iPad? Beg to tel us! Apple Watch was years after Samsung's Gear Watch. Don't tell us that Apple started to develop it before Samsung(two years) because non of the components of the Apple Watch existed then; Not to mention that Samsung, Sony and others make smartwatches since decades. Even if not same as today. BTW the smartwatch category is BS

I just hope it's a redesign.. hopefully a round watch, like the latest crop from android manufacturers. It was alright when Samsung had their gear s, and 360 was a pancake, but look at smartwatches now... New Round design, otherwise Android Wear App will be installed on my phone - if you know what I mean...
