The Apple Watch Series 10 could introduce the biggest design upgrade users have seen in years

The Apple Watch Series 10 could introduce the biggest design upgrade users have seen in years

Fitbit might have some competition

In the past few months, many rumours have circulated that the 10th Apple Watch in the series would bring major changes to the gadget's design and functions.

Now, those rumours have been confirmed.

TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared his predictions for the new tech release on the content platform Medium.

According to Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 10 will be thinner. This prediction follows a Bloomberg report that the tech giant is also planning to launch thinner iPhones and MacBooks in the year 2025.

In contrast to the thinner design, the screen size will be bigger. The latest series will reportedly offer sizes from 45mm/41mm to about 49mm/45mm.

'People involved in the development of new Apple Watches say the system takes up a considerable amount of space that could be better filled with a bigger battery or other components,' Bloomberg reported.

Another interesting move is Apple's shift to 3D-printed parts for its upcoming smartwatch due to the reduced production costs.

'Intensive testing over the past year has significantly improved the production efficiency of 3D printing,' Kuo wrote.

The specs of the Apple Watch Ultra model will remain roughly the same, although we may see more colour options, such as 'black/dark' if 'production yields meet expectations.'

However, there has been little info in the leak about new fitness and biosensing capabilities.

Bloomberg recorded that the Apple Watch Series X will also feature a new band attachment design that uses magnetic parts. Additionally, the OLED panels on the smartwatch are expected to be replaced with microLED screens.

This is rumoured to be because of the more accurate pressure sensing, a similar function that is seen in Samsung Watches.

Alongside this, the addition of non-invasive monitoring of blood glucose levels and alcohol concentration is fitting with the growing popularity of health tracking. Though something like sweat analysis would certainly be a novel innovation of the smartwatch.

So even before any verified confirmation from Apple, it seems the new series of smartwatches will be a landmark for future wrist-tech to follow.

The issue with Apple watches over certain other wearable tech like the Fitbit tended to be the limited battery life so hopefully developers are looking into improvements for this.

At this moment, there isn't a set price of the Apple Watch Series X but considering the wave of upgrades and fresh design, it will likely be a next-gen price hike.
