A little ahead of time, here is the first look at the new Apple Watch

The upcoming refresh of the Apple Watch, which has been extensively rumored, can now be seen in all of its glory if a new report by 9to5mac is to be believed. The website has shared the image above, which is presumably coming straight from Apple.

The image would confirm many of the rumors that have popped up over the past few months, starting with the reduced bezels that make for a display that goes almost all the way to the edges of the watch face. Reducing the bezels is all Apple has done to increase the display size, which means that the size of the watch itself is similar to previous models and you can use the same watch bands as before.

There's also a hole between the button and the rotating crown on the side of the device, which could mean the microphone has been moved, possibly due to the bigger display. The crown now has a red ring, replacing the fully colored circle introduced with last year's model, and the side button seems to protrude less from the body of the watch.

Lastly, on the software side, it looks like Apple has done some work on the watch face, adding a lot more complexity to it. Perhaps due to the bigger screen, there's now a lot more information being fed to the user, including temperature, sunset and sunrise times, UV Index, and much more.

If the image is indeed accurate, we're looking at what's undoubtedly the biggest update to the Apple Watch since the original release. We will likely know this for sure when Apple holds its special event on September 12, where it will probably announce new iPhone models as well.
