Sources from the upstream supply chain told DigiTimes that the Apple Watch Series 3 will commence shipping starting from the second half of 2017.

[Representational Image] Apple product (2017) news alert: Launch, price details of iPhone X (aka iPhone 8), Watch series 3 surface online.

Considering that Apple so far hasn't updated the design of the Apple Watch it would be nice to think the company will introduce something new this year however, as of yet all reports point to few if any significant hardware changes on the Apple Watch Series 3.

Little else has been revealed about Apple's plans.

Apple Watch is perhaps the best-selling smartwatch ever released.

It's likely the new Watch will be unveiled alongside the iPhone 8, which is set to be unveiled during an Apple event this coming September.

Presently, Quanta Computer is the only Apple Watch manufacturer for this year. The third-generation Apple Watch is expected to be much improved over the Apple Watch Series 2.

For Compal, the order from Apple comes at an opportune time since it has faced a slowdown in the manufacture of laptops which has been one of its core businesses. Currently, Apple sells both the Apple Watch 1 and 2 generations side by side, meaning that when the 3 generation does come out, buyers might have a third option to choose from, if Apple does not drop the 1 gen version, which it is continuing to produce. In 2016, for instance, more than five million wearable devices were shipped by Compal.

While the company refused to comment, Digitimes noted that it has recently relocated equipment for smart device production. Last year, Apple shipped approximately 12 million Apple Watches and according to Canalys, a research firm, this volume is enough to command practically 50 percent of the smartwatch market. The Chongqing facilities are expected to become the main manufacturing sites for devices ranging from smartphones to tablets to wearables.
