San Francisco, July 25 (SocialNews.XYZ) The next generation of Apple Watches will likely include a rugged “Pro” model that will feature an all-new design with a “more durable titanium formulation to make it sturdier.”
The new top model could end up being “big enough to only appeal to a subset of customers,” reports Mark Gurman in his “Power On” newsletter for Bloomberg.
The screen of the Watch “Pro” model will be 7% larger than the current Apple Watch Series 7 models, with a “new look”.
It will be “the company’s first time introducing a new Apple Watch design since 2018.”
This design would be “an evolution of the current rectangular shape, not circular”.
The design will also avoid “flat sides” and use a “more durable titanium formulation to make it sturdier.”
The watch is expected to come with a bigger battery and a sturdy metal case.
The screen will measure almost two inches diagonally. The screen will also have a resolution of approximately 410 pixels by 502 pixels.
Gurman speculates that the larger screen could be used to display more fitness metrics or watch face information.
Additionally, the report states that the extreme sports watch will use stronger metal than aluminum and have a more shatter-resistant screen.
The watch is also expected to have a larger battery to accommodate longer workout durations, as well as improved tracking metrics, such as the ability to detect elevation while hiking.
The extreme sports version of the Apple Watch is expected to cost more than the standard stainless steel Apple Watch, which is currently priced at $699.
