The report suggests that China's Quanta Computer will continue to handle manufacturing of Apple's new Apple Watch Series 3.
The Apple Watch Series 2 will be a year old in September 2017, so we're expecting Apple to begin refreshing the wearable once a year, just as it does with the iPhone. Then in February, DigiTimes reported that Apple may plan to move away from a touch-on-lens display to a glass-film touch system.

In 2016 Apple analysts estimated that the Cupertino, California-based technology giant shipped more than 11 million smartwatches. The supposed "Apple Watch Series 3" is expected to arrive within the third or fourth quarter of 2017. Supply chain sources are now saying that Tim Cook's company is scheduled to release the Apple Watch Series 3 in the second half of 2017, and this could mean that the techie timepieces could be unveiled around the same time as the iPhone 8 and other iPhones. However, Compal declined to comment on its orders or clients. All production for the original Apple Watch and Apple Watch Series 2 has been handled by Quanta. Despite the slowdown, Compal is still the second-biggest manufacturer of notebooks in the world. Apple shipped nearly 12 million Apple Watches past year, according to research firm Canalys, enough to command nearly 50% of the smartwatch market.
On Wednesday, Chinese newspaper DigiTimes reported about hearing directly from upstream supply chain Compal Electronics that the next-gen Apple Watch is slated for release in the second half. 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 Apple Watch 2 will comprise a significant portion of these shipments. Compal reportedly made a decision to help manufacture Apple Watch units following a decline in demand for laptop computer manufacturing. The Chongqing facilities are expected to become the main manufacturing sites for devices ranging from smartphones to tablets to wearables.
