If a well-connected industry analyst has good information, there is going to be a new Apple Watch just around the corner. KGI Security's Ming-Chi Kuo, who was the one who was able to predict the launch of the iPhone SE, said that there will be two new Apple Watches coming before the end of 2016.

According to MacRumors, the one model will actually be an incremental upgrade to the current Apple Watch, but it will have a better processor and improved waterproofing. The second model, which is being tentatively called the Apple Watch 2, will have even better improvements: more precision for GPS, a bigger battery, and more personalization.

Ming-Chi also said that Apple will likely introduce LTE connectivity at some point in 2017. This means that you will be able to use your watch without connecting to Wi-Fi or a phone.

Apple unveiled a new OS for Apple Watch in June, but they didn't really talk too much about a new model. Some were worried because the Apple Watch really didn't take off like many thought it would. Still, they are leading with 1.6 million devices shipped in the second quarter of this year. While it is a drop from the 3.6 million that were shipped last year, it is still far ahead of the 600,000 devices that Samsun sold under the Galaxy Gear brand.

Ming-Chi has another Apple prediction for this year, and it is one that is sure to get Apple fans excited. He said that the company will likely release an extremely revamped MacBook Pro around the holiday season. It will include an OLED touchscreen instead of function keys, USB-C support, and Touch ID.
