Apple Watch Pro: Price Release Date Everything we know so far

Apple Watch Pro: Design and screen

Table of Content (toc)

According to a report by Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, the Apple Watch Pro will be visually differentiated from the Apple Watch Series 8 with a new design. The Apple Watch Pro won't feature the flat edges once rumored for the Apple Watch Series 7, but there are apparently some design changes on the horizon.

Bloomberg reports that the Apple Watch Pro will be an "evolution of the current rectangular shape." It's not immediately clear what this means in terms of design, aside from the fact that the Apple Watch Pro won't be a rounded smartwatch.

One of the key changes to the Apple Watch Pro will be the materials it's made from. Currently, the Apple Watch is available in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. The Apple Watch Pro will reportedly feature a "more durable titanium formulation" as part of Apple's efforts to make it as durable as possible.

Apple Watch Pro: Design and screen

The Apple Watch Pro will also be larger than the current Apple Watch models. The Apple Watch Series 7 is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes. Those sizes refer to the physical size of the Apple Watch case, not the size of the screen. According to Bloomberg, the Apple Watch Pro case will be larger than 45mm and could be "big enough that it only appeals to a subset of customers."

In addition to the larger case, the Apple Watch Pro will also have a larger screen. Bloomberg reports that the screen will be about 7% larger than the current Apple Watch Series 7, with a resolution of about 410 pixels by 502 pixels. For context, the 45mm version of the Apple Watch Series 7 features a resolution of 396 by 484 pixels.

Battery life

Along with that larger design, the Apple Watch Pro is also set to offer better battery life. Longer battery life will be a key factor for "extreme sports" buyers of this Apple Watch, and apparently, that's something Apple is aware of.

We don't have exact stats on how much bigger the battery inside the Apple Watch Pro will be. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman simply said the device will feature better battery life. In fact, Gurman speculated that the Apple Watch Pro could last "several days on a single charge through the new low power mode."

Battery life

A new low-power mode for the Apple Watch has been rumored for several months. It didn't show up when watchOS 9 was unveiled at WWDC in June. Now, reports say the new low-power mode could be exclusive to Apple Watch models launching this fall.

A new low-power mode on the Apple Watch would reportedly allow users to continue using Apple Watch apps and features without consuming too much power. Apple can reduce power consumption by pausing background activities, reducing screen brightness, and limiting other features as it does with Low Power Mode on iPhone and Mac.

Apple Watch Pro: Sensors and chips

Like the Apple Watch Series 8, this new Apple Watch Pro is expected to add support for body temperature measurements. The Apple Watch will not be able to give you an exact measurement of your body temperature but will send you an alert when it detects that your temperature is high. You could then take your temperature with a traditional thermometer.

The Apple Watch Pro could also offer unique fitness and health tracking features. This could include additional metrics collected using existing sensors, different types of training, and much more.

Other new health features are expected for the Apple Watch next year and beyond, including things like blood pressure monitoring and glucose measurements. These features are not expected to launch with this year's Apple Watch Series 8 or Apple Watch Pro.

Apple Watch Pro: Sensors and chips

Finally, the Apple Watch Pro will be powered by a "new" S8 processor inside. This chip will reportedly offer "similar performance" to the S7 chip inside the Apple Watch Series 7, which is also similar to the S6 chip inside the Apple Watch Series 6. This means we shouldn't expect huge performance gains with updates. of this year.

Conclusion

This new variant of the Apple Watch could ultimately end up being called a number of different things. The clear focus is on making this Apple Watch more rugged, durable, and optimized for extreme sports. If Apple wanted to lean into that idea, this version of the Apple Watch could be called something like “Apple Watch Extreme.”

In addition to being optimized for rugged and extreme sports lifestyles, however, this Apple Watch will also be ultra-premium with a new design, larger display, and improved battery life.

So if Apple wanted to target a broader audience of consumers, including those who simply want the “best” version of the Apple Watch, something like the “Apple Watch Pro” or “Apple Watch Max” might make the most sense.

The Apple Watch Series 8 and “Apple Watch Pro” are set to be announced in September alongside the iPhone 14. What are your thoughts on these rumors? Would you buy a so-called Apple Watch Pro? Let us know down in the comments.
