Right before Apple Watch 2 comes out.

"Right before?" What does that mean? Do you know the date for the release of version 2 of the watch?

Isn't this--or shouldn't it be--the case for all news and information?

Personally, I'm thinking they'll announce Apple Watch OS3 before they show the Apple Watch 2 given all the sales of Apple Watch 1.

"News flash: the number 4 has been determined two be twice the value of the number 2.

As this has been mathematically proven, without relying upon any possibly changing physical constraints, the information is unchangeable and no further updates will be issued."

I've never heard of that. What's your source?

It is going to be the year of the Red Monkey. So maybe a theme around that? ;)

Just some standard colors bundled with a strap that usually isn't an available combo or more interestingly would be something like an Anodized Red Sport model.

I think Watch OS will support the First gen watch for a while, say 2 hardware revisions, so whether there's a watch 2 in March or not it really is OS functionality I would like. Solid OS functionality across the board for all Apple OS's (TV OS, iOS, Watch OS and OSX).
