Leaks note that the design should follow the look of the Series 3 but feature an S6 processor (same processor used on the unreleased Apple Watch Series 6), 16 GB of storage, Bluetooth 5.0 and a cellular version option.

If Apple does indeed resurrect the gold Apple Watch Edition at a price anything like the original’s, we’d hope to see software support last a little longer than before.
