With the Apple Watch Pro, which is expected for autumn 2022, the manufacturer could use a new design for the first time in years. However, no dramatic changes are planned.
With the new Apple Watch Pro, which according to previous rumors is due to appear in the fall, Apple could introduce a new design in the smartwatch division for the first time in several years. At least that’s what Bloomberg author Mark Gurman claims in his newsletter (via 9to5Mac).
The exact design remains a mystery
However, the author does not reveal exactly what the redesign of the new watch should look like. The only thing that seems certain is that Apple will not adopt the design of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 with their rather sharp edges. The basic display format should probably not change either. In all likelihood, Apple will remain true to the square display and not offer a round watch display.
In addition, the Apple Watch Pro should have a larger display, longer battery life and a sensor to measure body temperature compared to previous models. Gurman also believes the watch could run for days on a single charge thanks to a new power-saving mode.
New sensors are obviously shifting
According to Gurman, however, there will be no new sensors for measuring blood pressure and blood sugar. Both are said to be in an early stage of development. The author does not expect a sensor to measure blood pressure until 2025 at the earliest and a blood glucose sensor not before the end of the decade.
The Apple Watch Pro is set to expand the manufacturer’s smartwatch lineup. Apple wants to use it to appeal more to extreme athletes in particular. Gurman expects the model to have a significantly higher price compared to conventional Apple Watches.
