Apple Watch Series 5 in (PRODUCT)RED Could Launch in 2020

Apple may be planning to expand its Apple Watch Series 5 lineup with a new (PRODUCT)RED model at some point next year, according to evidence uncovered by French blog WatchGeneration.

The report claims the unreleased Apple Watch briefly appeared in an unspecified Apple database, adding that it would likely be an aluminum model with a similar red finish as the iPod touch. The new color would be offered alongside existing silver, space gray, and gold aluminum casing options.

It is unclear exactly when the new Apple Watch model could be released, but the spring is a possibility. Apple introduced (PRODUCT)RED versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 in March 2017 and April 2018, respectively.

Apple donates a portion of proceeds from every (PRODUCT)RED product that it sells to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, raising more than $220 million since 2006. Apple sells a wide range of (PRODUCT)RED products, ranging from iPhone and iPad cases to Beats headphones and speakers.

It would be better if Apple offered a Product RED iPhone Pro instead.

I love the idea of the "RED" products. But like a previous post said, you gotta release them with the normal refresh cycle. I always upgrade when the cycle refreshes. Not worth buying this model months before an update just to get a cool color and provide a small bit of charity support to an organization. Now if the full price of the watch was donated to the charity, then we can talk. Otherwise I might as well make my own donation and wait for the refresh cycle.

Please release this is in the normal cycle not in the spring. I can’t justify buying one in the spring when I know September is a few months away :/

Then immediately release Product RED AirPods Pro to go along with the watch (C’mon Apple: We know the white is iconic and easily the best free advertising in cities and airports, but PLEASE make this happen!).

I'd be interested if they could do it in Stainless Steel - the iPhone 8 red-dyed steel looked pretty neat. Maybe also Forest Green stainless to match my iPhone 11 Pro Max?

That looks like a toy watch for kids.
