A bigger, flatter “Apple Watch Pro”?

A bigger, flatter “Apple Watch Pro”?


If you find the current Apple Watch a little limited, perhaps Apple’s upcoming conference might interest you. The manufacturer should announce a Pro model there which concentrates lots of new features, including a finally different design.

Apple should not take too long to formalize its new mobile products for the year 2021/2022. The manufacturer will hold its back-to-school conference on September 7. On the program, iPhone 14 of course, but also the Apple Watch. Last minute rumors also tell us a little more about the new connected watch from Apple.

A 47mm model

From the sources of Japanese website Macotakara allow you to see more clearly on the Apple Watch “Pro” which has been talking about it for a few weeks. As we learned recently, this pro model will a priori be larger than the “standard” versions 41 and 45mm. It would be exactly 47 mm and would therefore arrive with a screen of almost 2 inches (1.99 inches to be precise).

The new model would also be inspired by the latest iPhone since, according to Macotakara, the watch would sport a much squarer design than other Apple Watches. Exit the screen that overflows on the sides, the Pro model will have a flat screen and a shell (in titanium) with more angular features, like the brand’s recent mobiles. The idea being to make the watch more resistant to shocks and small accidents of life, since the tocante would be aimed at backpackers and sportsmen.

An Apple Watch at 1000 €?

Who says bigger watch also says bigger battery, an essential component if Apple really wants to convince the most seasoned sportsmen to adopt its new gadget. The rest of the characteristics have been known for some time. The watch will a priori carry an S8 chip – while the other models would retain an S6 chip – and software optimizations to improve the autonomy of the device.

As with its iPhones, Apple could therefore mark a clear break in the range this year between its Apple Watch Pro and the other models. Only the top-of-the-range version would benefit from the new design and an updated processor. It is not excluded that these novelties arrive later on the rest of the range. That being said, it seems that in 2022, to buy the best from Apple, you will have to pay the price. It is rumored that the watch could cost between 900 and 1000 €.
