More rumors are spinning in the Apple playground, this time focusing on the possible release of an Apple Watch 2.
What could be so special about Apple Watch 2 when the first version of the wearable was just released a couple of months ago? Well, according to media reports, an incorporated video camera, alongside an enhanced wireless system.
FaceTime Video Camera as the new gimmick on the Apple Watch 2 would be titled is praised to bring FaceTime calls closer, making the experience far better, and allowing users to answer or reject from both the watch or their iPhone.
So far, so good. Yet, there are quite some voices who are arguing that incorporating a camera on such a wearable is in fact not such a good idea.
While saving the time that it would iPhone users to look for their phones in the purses, backpack or pockets when simply looking at flimsy notifications, integrating the FaceTime camera on the Apple Watch 2 would work to the contrary.
What about image quality and social interactions where perhaps personal calls are better left for later unless you want an entire group eavesdropping on your conversation.
Aside this small drawback, a second generation Apple Watch is in fact good news. The rumor of a new Apple Watch coming in 2016 was first released by 9to5Mac. According to the website, Apple Watch 2 would be far more independent than its predecessor, allowing for more standalone functionality.
This entails the integration of a better wireless chipset which should take Apple Watch one step further from just tracking activity, music playback, texting and e-mailing and some mobile payments.
While it is expected that more actions will be supported by the new generation wearable, it is rather improbable that software upgrades or media file sync could be done without a reliable iPhone.
The newly featuring wireless chip should also enable the Find My Watch feature that prompts an anti-theft system based on WiFi triangulation technology.
With current reports that the Apple Watch is usually spending 70 percent battery throughout the day, Apple is not expected to change much about the battery of the new generation wearable.
