Apple Watch Pro: Outdoor watch will probably get a new design

Apple has changed relatively little in the design of its smartwatches in recent years. The display has gotten bigger and bigger over time, and the case has also become more compact, but overall the current Apple Watch 7 still looks a lot like the first model from 2015. Now the first clear cut may be imminent. At least that’s what the usually well-informed Apple insider and Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman claims in a recent post. It is not the upcoming Apple Watch 8 that will have a new look, but the parallel and previously unannounced outdoor model.
This has been stalking the rumor mill for months and has been trading under the Apple Watch Pro name for a few weeks. According to the current state of information, this particularly robust version of the watch should primarily appeal to extreme athletes and outdoor enthusiasts, and also provides reliable service in harsh conditions far away from power outlets and the like. So far, there have only been indications that the device would boast a larger display and a particularly stable housing. Now Gurman has picked up fresh design details.

Neither round nor square

According to Gizmochina.com, he reports in a recently published newsletter that the case and the shape of the display differ from the previous arrangement. The Apple Watch Pro should be neither circular nor classically square. Rather, it is a further development of the well-known rectangular design. However, he does not reveal what exactly this means. If previous information is true, which also largely comes from Gurman’s pen, the screen diagonal of the Apple Watch is more than 5 centimeters.

According to the report, the expert also commented on the material of the housing. That’s why the smartwatch is made of titanium just like previous top models. However, Apple uses a more stable composition that is said to be less susceptible to scratches and the like. Insiders expect the Apple Watch Pro to be released in the third quarter of 2022. According to current information, the watch is set to be Apple’s most expensive smartwatch to date, starting at $900 (about €890).
