    Is it too soon yet? Apparently the Internet doesn't think so... Features of the future Apple Watch 2 are already appearing online. Here's the scoop:
    • Could be called the Apple Watch S
    • Front-facing FaceTime camera built-in
    • Enhanced WiFi capabilities so it will work without an iPhone (although without SIM card compatibility)
    • May have the same (or similar) processor to the first generation Apple Watch
    • May have a fourth model
    The source of this leaked intel also indicated that the device will not be rushed to market, but will stick to Apple's usual 1 year release schedule. What do you guys think? Are any of these features worth waiting for?

    Yes, front facing FaceTime camera :-D Not just for FaceTime, but also for face recognition to unlock instead of pin, and to keep watch face on all the time I'm looking at it instead of fixed timeout.

    Unless the watch is made bigger; adding a camera would likely result in less room for the battery, leading to fewer hours between charges.

    That's not going to happen anytime soon.
