Apple typically offers the Apple Watch in one version with differing screen sizes, but that could change later this year. According to the latest rumors, Apple could be launching at least two Apple Watch models. One model is expected to be the flagship model with the top-of-the-line specs, while the other is expected to be the lower-end model.
Despite Apple continuously releasing new Apple Watches, the company tends to keep some older models around to act as a cheaper alternative to the newer ones. This has come in the form of the Apple Watch Series 3 which is still around until today, but if the latest rumors are right, there could finally be a new model to replace the Series 3.
It is unclear why Apple doesn’t simply just replace the Series 3 with the Series 5, but we’ll just have to wait and see. The top-of-the-line model is rumored to come with features like blood oxygen monitoring, an ECG monitor, a heart rate sensor, and all the other trappings that one might expect from a wearable like this.
For now, the blood oxygen monitor feature is new while the rest are old. Apple would also not be the first to introduce such a feature as we’ve seen similar features introduced by the competition in the past, such as Samsung, so it will be interesting to see whose tool is more accurate.
