Apple Watch Pro may feature a massive 47mm iPhone 13 Pro-like flat display
The upcoming Apple Watch 8 could feature a massive 47mm flat display, matching the design of the iPhone 13 Pro. Here's what you need to know.
Apple is all set to unveil its newest iteration of the iPhone, the iPhone 14, at its “Far Out” event scheduled for September 7, just a week from now. The Cupertino-based tech giant is also expected to launch the new Apple Watch 8. Although much has been made of the new pill-shaped and punch hole notch design of the iPhone 14 Pro variants, the upcoming Apple Watch Pro is expected to feature a massive 47mm flat display, matching the design ideology of the iPhone 13 Pro.
According to rumours, Apple is expected to launch 3 variants of the Apple Watch this year – Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch 8 and the new Apple Watch Pro (Rugged). While the Apple Watch SE is expected to be an affordable and toned-down version of the Apple Watch 8, the new Apple Watch Pro or Apple Watch Rugged is a whole new watch, housing even better features and specs than the already impressive Apple Watch 8.
Apple Watch rumoured features and specifications
According to the Japanese website Mac Otakara, the rugged Apple Watch Pro will feature a large 47mm case and a flat display, much like the design of the iPhone 13 Pro. This would make the Apple Watch Pro 7 percent larger than the largest standard Apple Watch model. Earlier, Apple analyst Ross Young revealed that 45mm won't be the largest variant of the Apple Watch 8 as the company is expected to launch a new 50mm variant this year.
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, nearly the same price as the iPhone 13 Pro.
