Manzana plans to redesign its line of Apple Watch smartwatches with the new ‘Watch X’ model, which will be “the biggest renovation to date” and “will commemorate the device’s 10th anniversary” launching next year 2024 or 2025, according to Gurman.
The company run by Tim Cook launched last year the Apple Watch series 8, with a new temperature sensor to improve monitoring of health functions. Likewise, he also launched the Apple Watch Ultra model, which he defined as the “all-terrain” watch with mobile connectivity, GPS (L1 + L5) and a battery that offers 36 hours of autonomy on a single charge.
Now, Apple is working on the design of a new model Apple Watch Xwith which it will redesign the main line of its smart watches and which will incorporate a blood pressure sensor, microLED screen and will have a thinner thickness.
This has been detailed by the analyst Mark Gurman through Bloomberg, where he has stressed that this model “promises to be the biggest renovation to date” of the smart watches of the American company.
However, it will not arrive this year, but is scheduled for the tenth anniversary of the Apple Watch – which was first presented in 2014 and launched in 2015. That is, according to Gurman, Apple will present the ‘Watch X’ between the year 2024 and 2025.
Specifically, with this new model, the design of the device will have a thinner thickness and, in addition, the possibility of changing the way in which the strap is attached to the device is being explored. In this sense, Apple is designing a new magnetic fixing system for the strap, so that the connection to the smart watch takes up less space.
On the other hand, the technology also plans to use a screen microLED instead of the OLED screens that are currently used. In addition, the ‘Watch X’ model will incorporate specific technology to monitor the user’s blood pressure.
