Earlier this month, journalists Mark Gurman and Debbie Wu of Bloomberg reported that Apple plans to introduce a replacement for the Apple Watch Series 3, which will compete with cheaper fitness trackers such as Fitbit.
In August, Apple registered several unreleased Apple Watch models in the Eurasian Economic Commission’s database.
Probably, the available smart watches will be called Apple Watch, and more expensive – Apple Watch Pro, as almost all other products of the company are already divided into regular models and Pro-versions.
Apple is expected to unveil the new Apple Watch, iPad Air, AirTags and other gadgets at the event on September 15.
