Apple Watch Series 8 Rumors
With so many speculations already plaguing the market, it isn’t surprising that users are continually on the lookout for the next big thing in the market. Although no official confirmation has been published about the model, there are a few floating rumors that are worth looking into.
Although users look forward to a groundbreaking design refinement in the new Apple Watch, the brand has time and time disappointed its consumers with pretty similar design elements.
However, rumors suggest that the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8 will be a much more refined version of its predecessors, featuring a flat dial display. It is rumored to come with a flat front glass dial display. There are no reports regarding the chassis design or material yet.
Rugged Pro Apple Watch
Another very prominent rumor surrounding the Apple Watch series that has become quite prevalent is the release of a more rugged version of the model, especially featuring a more “extreme sports” version. The Pro version is rumored to come with a larger display and a durable metal casing to sustain any kind of usage.
This particular model is aimed at adventurists, hikers, athletes, etc. who need access to a more durable and sustainable product. Also, reports suggest that the display for this will be one of the largest to date, measuring around 2 inches diagonally.
Also, the display resolution will be 410×502 pixels, which is pretty great for a smartwatch. There are no reports yet on what this new “Pro” version of the smartwatch will be named and whether or not it will tie in with any possible launch with the Apple Watch Series 8 or not.
Optimal Health Features
Health features have become a mandate in most smartwatches, and Apple has been a frontrunner in that case. Reports from the Wall Street Journal suggest that Apple is working on introducing a series of new health features in their smartwatch.
