Apple has certified eight new smartwatches with the EEC, prompting speculation that they make up the company's Watch Series 6 offering. The smartwatches, likely to be released alongside the iPhone 12 series, will come in multiple styles and sizes.
Alex Alderson,

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has published two registrations for eight new Apple Watches. In March, the EEC published a listing for the iPad A2229, which Apple subsequently released as part of its fourth-generation iPad Pro. Hence, the arrival of new Apple Watches on the EEC suggests that Apple is on the brink of replacing the Watch Series 5.

The EEC has confirmed that Apple has the following models in development, though:

  • A2291
  • A2292
  • A2351
  • A2352
  • A2355
  • A2356
  • A2375
  • A2376

All eight smartwatches will ship with watchOS 7, which is unsurprising seeing as the new OS is compatible with the Watch Series 3 through Series 5. The EEC does not list any other details about Apple's next smartwatches, though. However, we imagine that Apple will release the Watch Series 6 in multiple styles and sizes. Additionally, the company is believed to be bringing blood-oxygen tracking to this year's Watch Series, tentatively referred to as the Watch Series 6 for the time being. According to recent rumours, Apple may be bringing cheaper and more premium smartwatches to market this year, alongside its regular models. Apparently, these new smartwatches will be called the Apple Watch SE and Watch Gold Edition, on which we have previously reported.

Traditionally, Apple unveils new Watch Series devices alongside iPad and iPhone refreshes. This year, however, the company is rumoured to be releasing the Watch Series 6 and new iPads via a press release. The latter have also been sighted at the EEC, details about which you can read here.
