For Compal, becoming a partner of Apple is definitely a dream come true.
Apart from battery life and performance improvements, it's been suggested that the Apple Watch will finally gain LTE capabilities, something which many have speculated including KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who personally reported that Apple may refresh the Apple Watch Series 2 during early 2017 with LTE capabilities and minor tweaks.
The Apple Watch Series 3 will launch later in 2017 according to the latest reports, bringing some tempting new features such as cellular support.
Currently, Apple Watch orders are exclusively handled by Quanta Computer. So if Apple wants to add this feature to the Watch 3, it had better fit a bigger battery too. The Apple Watch 3 features, however, aren't revealed in the recently leaked data.

MacRumors pointed out that just like previous year, Apple could be introducing the new wearables to the public this September.
It has been learned that tech pundit Christopher Rolland has shared that Apple fans can expect the next version of the Apple Watch to have its own SIM card slot and a built-in 4G LTE connectivity.
It's always been rumoured that Apple has been working on bringing cellular connectivity to the Apple Watch in early 2016, it was believed to be a planned feature for the second generation watch but instead we got Global Positioning System support. Series 1 and Series 2 of the Apple Watch are both available in the market. The upcoming next-generation Apple Watch, which is scheduled to be released in the second half, will continue to be manufactured by the Taiwan-based ODM; however, production of the existing second-generation Apple Watch will be partially given to Compal. The company has been redeploying equipment from its smart device production centers in preparation for Apple Watch.
Apple's next Apple Watch hasn't popped up in rumor mills as frequently as the iPhone 8 has, so there isn't a lot of information about the wearable floating about.
