An Apple Watch Pro is expected to come this year as the biggest and most capable Apple Watch ever made. So far, leaks and rumours have suggested a bigger display and a build quality that's aimed at durability. This Apple Watch Pro is said to be meant for athletes and adventure seekers who need a durable smartwatch. We did not know how the Apple Watch Pro could look like but thanks to a leak we have a better idea of what to expect at the September 7 launch event.

The Apple Watch Pro renders have leaked courtesy of a report from 91Mobiles. The CAD renders show the basic physical form only but we get to learn so much about the Apple Watch Pro from here. The biggest take is the larger sized display, which is said to vary between 47mm to 49mm sizes. The strap is much similar to the Series 8 strap but the larger changes come to the body of the watch itself.

Despite being a durable watch, the Apple Watch Pro is said to have a display with extremely slim bezels, just like the Apple Watch Series 7. The display is flat though, which should help with the shatter resistance. There is a large protrusion on the side holding the iconic Apple Watch crown and the Home button. The protrusion could suggest the presence of a larger battery inside, which is a necessity for durable watches.

However, the bigger surprise is the presence of another button on the opposite side. Mark Gurman from Bloomberg says that this button could be user programmable. Hence, users could assign the button to any specific app or function. Gurman also says that the Apple Watch Pro could have the curved sides instead of the flat sides shown in the CAD renders.

The Apple Watch Pro could take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and all the adventure smartwatches from Garmin. We recently reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which came with a Titanium body, a larger battery capable of offering up to two days of battery life, and all of Samsung's advanced health monitoring functions. Apple could be adding a body temperature monitoring sensor along with better navigation support as well as extra workout modes.
