The Bloomberg report on the Apple Watch Series 8 has revealed some interesting new details. The upcoming device is expected to have one of the largest display panels that can be found in any smartwatch or fitness tracker right now, which could make for an even more appealing product if it ships with this design change.
The Apple Watch “Pro” will be released with a fresh design, according to a recent newsletter from Gurman. The company has not redesigned its wearable line since introducing the Series 4 in 2018 and he notes that this new model is “a good bit bigger” than current models as it houses an expanded screen size which accounts for 7% more real estate on your wrist – representing evolution rather than revolution like some had speculated about beforehand. It’ll also lack those rumored flat sides, he adds. It will apparently use a new type of display technology that will allow Apple to reduce the bezels even further.
This is a significant change for the company’s wearable line and one that’s likely to be well-received by Watch users. A larger display has been one of the most requested features for the Apple Watch and it looks like the company is finally going to deliver on that front.
The next-generation Apple Watch could go days without needing a charge, and it will include an exciting new feature that tracks your body temperature.
Additionally, the new Apple Watch will be better suited for extreme sports, according to reports. The device’s metal casing is reportedly made of a stronger material that should withstand scratches and other wear-and-tear factors found in many active lifestyles without sustaining any damage or malfunctions on its outer surfaces.
The fall season is almost here and with it comes a deluge of new Apple products. One such product that has been leaked by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman includes an update to their original HomePod which will replace its current design with something more modern in appearance, likely unlike anything else on shelves at this point.
So Apple Watch enthusiasts, get excited for the “Pro” model coming later this year. It sounds like it’ll be worth the wait.
