Jon Prosser returns to speak a few days after the official announcement of the next Apple Event, after having missed the center with its forecasts regarding the announcements that the house of the Apple made on 8 September.
This time Prosser focuses on Apple Watch, more precisely on the alleged economic version that has been talked about for some time, stating that the wearable could be presented already during the event on September 15. Prosser also adds some additional details, confirming that the Watch low-end it could arrive in the two versions of 40 and 44mm (the tweet says 42mm, but the data has been corrected in a subsequent message) and for both variants the version with data connectivity will be available, in addition to the one with only GPS.
For hardware engineers – it's not listed as "Apple Watch SE"
They’re listed as:
– Apple Watch
– Apple Watch Pro
Who knows if those are the final marketing names … seems odd to me.

In short, the range seems to be complete and with few sacrifices, while the same does not seem as regards the functionality. The budget variant of Apple Watch could resume the design of Apple Watch Series 4 (so it also shares that of the 5 and probably the 6) by giving up the ECG functionality. Also absent is the always on display (which was a prerogative of the Series 5) and the presence of a is mentioned chip M9, although it is not clear what Prosser is referring to. In fact, remember that M9 is the name used in the past by Apple to indicate the co-processor of the Apple A9 SoC and we do not expect this component to replace the SiP traditionally used by Apple on its smartwatches.
Finally, Prosser states – while showing some doubts – that the name of this model could simply be Apple Watch (so not Apple Watch SE), while the more expensive models could become Apple Watch Pro. A naming scheme definitely not far from Apple, but certainly unusual for smartwatches.
