Analyst: the rugged Apple Watch Pro will have a titanium body, shatter-proof display

According to Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman, Apple will release three new watches this year — the Apple Watch 8, of course, a revamped SE and a rugged Pro watch.

The Apple Watch Pro is described as having the first new design since 2018. It won’t to new, however, as it will stick to a rectangular shape (instead of becoming circular) and it won’t have flat sides as some rumors have reported.

It will be bigger, though, and its screen is expected to be 7% larger than the 1.9″ panel on the Watch 7 45mm. And its screen will be more shatterproof than current watches, while its body will be made of durable lightweight titanium. The larger body should also allow for a larger battery, which will improve endurance.


The current Apple Watch 7 series comes in 41mm and 45mm sizes

According to Gurman, the Watch Pro will have a body temperature sensor. The company is also working on a blood pressure sensor for future models (probably coming in 2025 or so) and a glucose monitor (coming towards the end of this decade).

The rugged Apple Watch Pro is expected to start at $900. This Pro watch could mean the end of the premium Apple Watch Edition series. However, the analyst cautions that the Pro may be too big for some Apple Watch users.
