New Apple Watches
The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to launch 3 new Apple Watch models. These models will include Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE, and an all-new “rugged” model for athletes. An S8 chip will power the Watch 8 series but there is little to no difference as the performance will be almost the same as compared to S7 and S6 chips.
The Watch Series 3 is likely to be discontinued to favor the Watch SE. In addition to this Apple has recently launched watchOS 9 with new interfaces and features which will be available in all these watches.
