Ever since the Apple Watch became available for purchase, being a technological gadget, there has been a stream of rumors and speculations on how the product will be improved upon and, most importantly, when the second generation will be available for consumers.

One of the most prevalent rumors is that Apple is planning a 'March event' to uveil a second version of the wearable tech. It has been claimed that new upgrades will include a video camera function as well as enabling face time calls.

Don't get too excited though! According to Matthew Panzarino of Tech Crunch, the wait for the new and improved version of the watch may be delayed to later this year.

"Several things that I’ve heard (from several sources) indicate to me that we won’t see a major new hardware model of the Apple Watch in March. Design partnerships, accessories, that kind of thing maybe, but not a “Watch 2.0” with a bunch of new hardware features. I could be wrong, of course, but I’ve heard enough to put it out there" he wrote

He also spoke to Creative Strategies Analyst Ben Bajarin who said that supply chain checks are not showing any movement which indicates that a new model of the Apple Watch is not yet in production. “With the supply chain cuts from the usual suspects of Apple component providers, the timing does seem suspect for a new product given orders would have taken place in the latter part of 2015 if a new product is shipping first half of 2016,” Bajarin said.

And then Pazarin went on to add that "I’m also not hearing any major action on the software side of a new Apple Watch model. Shipping hardware well in advance of a even beta software that developers can use to take advantage of new features isn’t something that usually turns out well."

What do you think? Will we get a second Apple Watch on March or will it be later this year?
