Apple Watch 2: More discounts suggest release is on the horizon

The evidence for an imminent Apple Watch 2 release is mounting.

A major US retailer has discounted its entire range of Apple Watch models by $100.

The B&H sale, which began yesterday, is listed as continuing “while supplies last”, as spotted by Apple Insider.

That suggests this is a stock clearance, which tends to happen before next-generation product launches.

The retailer – an Apple authorised reseller – has also discounted its 12-inch MacBook line-up, which gels with rumours of an impending MacBook upgrade too.

Interestingly, this story mirrors a similar move made by Currys PC world in the UK just last week.

The British retailer discounted various Apple Watch models by between £50 and £120, just months after finally acquiring retail rights to the device.

Apple is widely rumoured to be planning a March 15 launch event, where the company looks set to unveil a number of new products.

Tipped to be chief amongst these are a new Apple Watch and a 4-inch iPhone 6C (or perhaps iPhone 5se).

Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t detailed any upcoming product launches for 2016 thus far, so we’re still in dark – officially, anyway.
