Apple is preparing the release of Apple Watch 2 this September but is still committed to the first-generation Apple Watch. The company brought new emoji in its WatchOS 2.0.1 update though disabling the Reserve Strap that would extend battery life on the Apple Watch, and brought Maps navigation and multiple watch pairing (allowing you to pair multiple watches to your iPhone) in WatchOS 2.2 beta (which made its way into the official release), so Cupertino hasn't abandoned the Apple Watch. New smartwatch releases shouldn't cancel out some sort of long-term commitment to older ones, though older models can't be updated forever.
In this commitment, the fruit company has now updated the Apple Watch from WatchOS 2.2.1 to WatchOS 2.2.2. There are some bug fixes with this update, although nothing particular has been stated. Apple is continuing its commitment to standalone apps that run via WiFi instead of Bluetooth, making users less reliant on their iPhone and more reliant on their smartwatch when they need to access something on the wrist.
Apple plans to announce the Apple Watch 2 in September featuring WatchOS 3, which is said to have a new Wheelchair Mode and perhaps cellular capabilities.
