Rumors: second gen Apple Watch will be (shock!) thinner and lighter

The second-generation Apple Watch will feature “One Glass Solution” (OGS) display technology instead of Glass on Glass (G/G) technology, according to DigiTimes quoting Apple supplier TPK Holding. The goal (to no one’s surprise): to make the upcoming smartwatch slimmer and lighter.

One Glass Solution technology eliminates the space between your display and touchscreen. It replaces one of the layers of glass from G/G technology with a thinner material. My take on the rumor: it’s correct. The second generation Apple smartwatch will be more svelte and slightly lighter.

What’s more, I think we’ll see the Apple Watch 2 (pictured in fun mock-ups; trust me, it WON’T look like these images) arrive alongside the iPhone 7 in early September. It will, in my opinion, be completely waterproof and be much less dependent on an iPhone when on a Wi-Fi network.
