    I'm guessing it'll be slimmer and lighter.

    No doubt Apple wants to reduce its size. Whether they reasonably can... we'll have to see.

    I think it will stay the same form factor for the second but minor tweaks in hardware.

    I'm guessing slimmer with some additional health sensors. I don't want it to make my gen 1 Apple Watch completely obsolete though.

    With the cost of the bands id imagine that the form factor will be similar. Or perhaps there will be 2 versions, similar and new? Most likely just similar

    Hoping a similar design with improved internals, such as from 6 to 6s. Most importantly is being able to use back existing bands.

    After hearing how Jony Ive's felt about the design, I'm guessing it will be very similar if not the same.

    Thinner and just about the same. The bands are pushed so hard I will be very surprised if something changes there. I do hope we get a bigger watch around 52 mm.

    I hope it's a different design but I think it will be. I don't see them changing the bands though.

    I'm thinking the shape will remain the same. My fiance' wants a round face for an Apple Watch, but unless they make it huge I think that will limit the screen real estate on some of the faces.

    Not so different the bands will be incompatible. The rumors of being slimmer is probably a credible rumor.

    I do wish instead of making it thinner, don't change the form factor and use the "extra" space for a battery for even better performance. What I mean by that, is if they're going to make it thinner, I'm assuming that apple will make sure the battery performance will be the same somewhow. Using that logic, they could use the same form factor and have even better battery life.
