Just a few days ahead of its expected launch on September 7th, some Apple Watch 2 components leaked last week and reveal a bigger battery and a thinner display.

Older rumors a few months ago predicted a thinner Apple Watch generation, mostly due to the fact that Apple changed its display to a one-glass solution. But since then, newer leaks and analyzes predicted a smartwatch that would have the same thickness as the first generation due to the integration of a bigger battery and additional features like GPS. Byte, an international repair and electronics shop published a video and some pictures last week, showing a few of the alleged Apple Watch 2 components.

Thanks to the bigger battery, that, according to Byte will offer a 35 percent boost compared to the first Apple Watch generation, the next Apple Watch might actually offer better battery life, even though a faster processor, a GPS sensor und a barometer will draw more power than last year's Apple Watch. Apparently Apple ditched plans to integrate LTE this year due to last minute problems with battery life and postponed LTE-integration to 2017. The Apple Watch 2 is expected to be revealed next week during the September 7th event together with Apple's next iPhone-generation.
