Apple Watch Pro: Everything we know so far

The Apple Watch lineup could see a major expansion this fall with the addition of the so-called new Apple Watch Pro. The new Apple Watch Pro is said to feature a new design, longer battery life, and improved durability.

Head below for the latest details on what we know about the Apple Watch Pro so far.

Apple Watch Pro: Design and Display

According to a report from Mark Gorman in BloombergApple Watch Pro will distinguish itself visually from the Apple Watch Series 8 with a new design. The Apple Watch Pro won’t have the flat bezels previously echoed by the Apple Watch Series 7, but there appear to be some design changes on the horizon.

Bloomberg Reports state 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, other than the fact that the Apple Watch Pro won’t be a round smartwatch.

One of the major changes to the Apple Watch Pro will be the materials it is made of. The Apple Watch is currently available in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. The Apple Watch Pro is said to feature a “more durable titanium construction” as part of Apple’s efforts to make it as durable as possible.

The Apple Watch Pro will also be larger than the current Apple Watch models. Apple Watch Series 7 is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes. These sizes refer to the physical body size of the Apple Watch, not the screen size. according to BloombergThe case for the Apple Watch Pro will be larger than 45mm, and it can be “large enough that it might appeal only to a subset of customers.”

In addition to the larger case, the Apple Watch Pro will also get a larger screen. Bloomberg Reports suggest that the display will be about 7% larger than the current Apple Watch Series 7, with a resolution of around 410 pixels by 502 pixels. For context, the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 has a resolution of 396 x 484 pixels.

Battery life

Besides this larger design, the Apple Watch Pro is also set up to improve battery life. Longer battery life will be a major factor for “extreme sports” buyers of this Apple Watch, and that seems to be something Apple is aware of.

We don’t have exact statistics about the battery size inside the Apple Watch Pro. BloombergMark Gorman simply said that the device will improve battery life. In fact, Gorman speculated that the Apple Watch Pro could last “for several days on a single charge via the new Low Power Mode.”

Apple Watch Pro battery

The Apple Watch’s new Low Power Mode has been rumored for several months. It did not appear when watchOS 9 was presented at WWDC in June. Now, reports suggest that the new Low Power Mode may be exclusive to Apple Watch models that will launch this fall.

Reportedly, the new Low Power Mode on the Apple Watch will allow users to continue using Apple Watch apps and features without draining too much power. Apple can reduce power consumption by pausing background activities, reducing screen brightness, and limiting other features like Low Power Mode on iPhone and Mac.

Apple Watch Pro: Sensors and chips

Much like the Apple Watch Series 8, the new Apple Watch Pro is expected to add support for body temperature measurements. Your Apple Watch won’t be able to give you an accurate measurement of your body temperature, but it will send you an alert when it detects your temperature has risen. Then, you can take your temperature with a conventional thermometer.

Apple Watch Pro can also offer exclusive fitness and health tracking features. This can include additional metrics collected using existing sensors, different types of exercise, and more.

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

Finally, the Apple Watch Pro will be equipped with a “new” S8 processor on the inside. This chip is said to 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 any major performance improvements with this year’s updates.

naming

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

In addition to being optimized for rugged and extreme sporting lifestyles, this Apple Watch will also be superior in quality with a new design, larger screen, and improved battery life.

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

The Apple Watch Series 8 and “Apple Watch Pro” are due to be announced in September along with the iPhone 14. What do you think of these rumors? Would you buy the so-called Apple Watch Pro? Let us know in the comments.
