The analyst believes a combination of a 'more trendy form factor design', the addition of new sensors beyond heart rate monitoring, and lowering of prices of older models will drive Apple Watch sales to new records
Apple will increase Apple Watch sales by 30 percent in 2018, with 22 to 24 million unit sold, Kuo predicts. The analyst didn't detail a specific launch timeline for the new wearable.
Like with all rumors, we advise you to take it with a grain of salt. However, Kuo has a solid Apple rumor track record, and it makes sense for Apple to beef up its Apple Watch lineup in 2018 to take on Google's rebranded WearOS, and presumably the onslaught of new Android wearables in the coming months.
