Update: This article has been updated after rumours have emerged from a more credible source

The Apple Watch Series 6 will be unveiled at an Apple event on 15 September.

Apple always announces its smartwatches in September, but with the pandemic still raging on, nothing is certain. But the company has circulated a 'Time Flies' teaser, which says there will be an event held at Apple Park.

Noted tipster Jon Prosser had predicted that Apple would launch its new smartwatch on 8 September - which we previously had reported - but it turned out to simply be the announcement of the announcement.

So what will we get?

We're assuming it will follow the tradition that we'll see an Apple Watch Series 6.

Rumors have speculated that it could offer blood oxygen monitoring, stress and panic attack tracking as well as fast charging or battery life innovation.

There have also been rumors of an Apple Watch SE replacing the ageing Series 3. whihc still represents the budget option for those not wanting to pay top dollar for a smartwatch.

However, these are still one;y rumors, and some indicate we may have to wait until March for a new budget Apple Watch.

A new Apple Watch will also herald the launch of watchOS 7, which right now is only in public beta.

We already know that watchOS 7 will bring native sleep tracking, which could logically mean battery improvements or fast charging could be hardware features of the Apple Watch.

And we're likely to see more health features, with blood oxygen figuring for the first time.
