Apple’s event is just around the corner and only one more day from now, all of the Apple Watch Series 6 rumors will be confirmed or denied.

The iPhone maker has been preparing for the smartwatch for so long with the introduction of watchOS 7. While the updates are available for older generations as well, the software is clearly geared towards the upcoming Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 5 is among the best on the market but its successor is set to fix some of its issues and offer new features.

If you want to know everything about Apple Watch Series 6 rumors before tomorrow’s event, read on as we have compiled this list of what people have been talking about the smartwatch.

Apple Watch Series 6 Release Date

Among all Apple Watch Series 6 rumors, the one about its release date has arguably attracted the most attention. Apple usually launches a new Apple Watch in September so this year, we have reason to expect the same.

Apple made public that its upcoming online will be hosted on September 15 at 10 AM PT. The company didn’t say what it’s going to introduce there but from the name “Time Flies,” eager audiences think the new Apple Watch would be the star of the show.

Other gadgets might appear too, like Apple AirTags, iPad Air 4, or iPhone 12.

Even if Apple Watch Series 6 does make an appearance on September 15, you may have to wait at least 10 days to buy it.

At this point, we don’t know if the COVID-19 pandemic has had any impact on Apple’s schedule for releasing new gadgets as it did with iPhone 12.

At least one leaker has claimed the smartwatch would not make it to the market until October, adding to the slew of Apple Watch Series 6 rumors. The pandemic might affect the on-sale date, not the announcement date.

Apple Watch Series 6 price in India will definitely be as much as that of Appel Watch Series 5, or higher.

Apple Watch Series 6 Specs

One of the new features of Apple Series 6 is the ability to track wearers’ temperature. This rumor surfaced when an improved yoga mode was spotted in an Apple patent, which does so by tracking your body’s temperature.

Thanks to watchOS 7, we now know that Apple Watch Series 6 and other Apple’s wearables will have a native sleep tracking function. This isn’t exactly a surprise as we have heard it long ago along with other Apple Watch Series 6 rumors.

Apple Watches have support for third-party apps for sleep tracking instead of offering its own, so this feature has been a long time coming.

Another major upgrade is better parental controls and 'tachymeter' distance-tracking markings, a function we usually see on conventional analog wristwatches.

Another highlight among all the Apple Watch Series 6 rumors we have heard so far is the ability to track blood oxygen levels and give out a warning if those are lower than usual, signifying a potential cardiac attack. Plus, an improved ECG might also come to the new Apple Watch.

Jon Prosser also predicts that the blood oxygen level tracking feature can be combined with heart rate monitoring to tell when the wearers are hyperventilating.

This new ability can tip the Apple Watch of the wearers are experiencing a panic attack. What happens next might be the watch telling owners to breathe until the attack passes.

We have heard that the watch might have mental health tracking, among other Apple Watch Series 6 rumors, so this might be what these leakers were talking about.

Blood oxygen tracking has been rumored a number of times, including leaks from supply chain sources, so it’s highly likely that we will see it on the new Apple Watch.

Another patent hints at medical alerts including medication reminders and gesture controls. It also talks about a feature that allows Apple Watch to know on which wrist it is worn on.

Another interesting leak among all the Apple Watch Series 6 rumors is the ability of the watch to tell if you are going to drown and call the emergency service if you are.

Along with new health features, the Apple Watch Series 6 might come with better water resistance ability and connectivity, and faster performance. None of these functions come as a surprise as Apple Series 5 is already water-resistant to 50 meters.

This rumor was made public by Ming-Chi Kuo, a respectable Apple analyst who has been right a dozen of times about what Apple plans to do next.

We might also see changes with the battery as we have seen Apple’s 303.8mAh, 265.9mAh, and 262.9mAh battery going through the South Korean regulatory process.

Apple Watch Series 5 features a 296mAh battery so the two other sizes might be different sizes and configurations for Series 6.

Another big upgrade among Apple Watch Series 6 rumors is the switch to digital crown. At this point, we can’t be sure if any of these rumors are true so stay tuned for Apple’s event and Apple Watch Series 6 news to find out.
