The iPhone 14 will surely seize the spotlight during the “Far Out” event - the Apple fall event on September 7. But the new AirPods Pro 2 and Apple Watch 8 are some of the other highlights that may be launched too and it looks like they will bring some exciting surprises for Apple fans. Leaks and rumours hint that Apple's update to the new Apple Watch 8 will include a new “Pro” model aimed at athletes, hikers, and all sports enthusiasts.

This premium, or we should say, rugged version of the Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to launch. It is expected to be launched along with the standard Apple Watch 8 and a low-cost Apple Watch SE this fall. Now, just ahead of the launch, a new report by AppleInsider claims that the new rugged version of Apple Watch Pro will have a flat screen and an updated exterior design. It is believed to be bigger and more rugged than the rest of the models - as mentioned before, it is intended for very active users. Let's delve into the details of what the new Apple Watch Series 8 Pro may look like.

Apple Watch Series 8 Pro expected design, features and more

A roundup of rumors on Apple Watch Series 8 Pro (rugged) model will be bigger by 7 percent than the largest standard Apple Watch model, AppleInsider said citing a Macotakara report. While another report mentioned the use of a 1.99-inch display. Surprisingly, the new version of the Watch will use a flat display with a metal casing just “like the iPhone 13 Pro”. However, this model may be available in a 47mm size only. Some previous reports claim that the Apple Watch Pro may include the use of an all-new design with the use of titanium for strength.

The Apple Watch 8 is expected to feature an S8 chip that is said to have the same specs as the S7. Earlier, Analyst Mark Gurman tipped that it may feature a dedicated body temperature sensor. The Pro model is tipped to get a price tag of around $900.

However, you will need to wait till the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8 along with iPhone 14 lineup on September 8 to see whether there is any truth in all these leaks.
