The Apple Watch has been out for the last 9 months, and, as is the case with mobile devices, Apple is planning an Apple Watch 2 announcement for March 2016. The source says that the Apple Watch 2 will debut then, specifically because of the official release of the first-generation Apple Watch (which was around March 2015).
We don’t know much of what Apple is working on, but we do know that Apple intends to bring new features to the Apple Watch 2 such as “new camera, wireless, sleep tracking, and health sensor technologies for the wearable device,” according to Apple rumor tracking site 9to5Mac. The “new camera” mentioned here refers to a FaceTime camera that Apple is interested in placing on the Apple Watch 2, as well as Wi-Fi so as to reduce smartphone tethering for the next-generation Apple Watch. Sleep tracking and health sensors are not a surprise for a device that Apple touted at its introduction as a device that is said to monitor your health. Apple has been working on reducing the Apple Watch dependence on the iPhone 6, for example, by way of standalone apps, but even then, the freedom is limited and extremely so when compared to the capabilities of a Wi-Fi-enabled smartwatch.
One of the more interesting questions about the second-generation Apple Watch 2 concerns its shape: will it be round or square? The Apple Watch 2 concept above should not be taken as a confirmation from Apple; it is a concept of what a circular Apple Watch 2 could look like should the fruit company head in that direction. As for the precise shape, you'll have to wait until the watch's unveil for that.
Apple is also rumored to emerge with the 4-inch iPhone 6c at the 2016 announcement, but if the Wi-Fi rumor comes true, you won’t need to tether it to your Apple Watch 2 (and vice versa).
