A few days ago, N4BB reported, that Apple might not release the Apple Watch 2 in March, but in September this year, following the company’s yearly release cycle. But several online retailers and physical stores have already started offering significant discounts on the upcoming Apple watches. This might indicate that the Apple Watch 2 will release soon, but there could be the possibility that the Cupertino firm might be preparing for a new shipment of an updated Apple Watch, and not a new model.
