Apple Watch 2 Likely to Rope in Bigger Batter and Thinner Display

September 7, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple is expected to launch its Apple Watch successor in its upcoming event on September 7 that will showcase the iPhone 7 device under the limelight. Now ahead of the official launch, reports are bearing the leaked components from Apple Watch 2, which indicates that the successor will come out with a thinner display and bigger battery.

The leak comes from electronics shop Byte, which has posted a YouTube video detailing the Apple Watch 2 components. Accordingly, the Apple Watch 2 will be featuring a larger 1.28Wh battery compared to the 0.98Wh battery that was used in the original device.

A better battery is always welcome for the smartwatch device. This should also make some breathing space for powering up the GPS that has been rumoured to be present as an upgrade in the new Apple Watch.


A move for cellular connectivity was earlier snubbed after citing that power source would be insufficient for adding cellular connectivity in Apple Watch 2. But the extra battery seems apt for including GPS support. It needs to be seen whether the extra charge will have an overall impact on the life of Apple Watch 2 after GPS consumption.

Apart from the battery leak, the video also throws light over the thinner display panel used in Apple Watch 2, like it was rumoured previously. The display size remains unchanged for the successor, but the thinning of the panel could now make the Apple Watch 2 a lot thinner compared to the predecessor.

The other addition according to Byte is the presence of an additional chipset, that comes along with an improved layout of the Force Touch Gasket.
