We’ve been hearing rumors about a rugged Apple Watch for over a year now and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes it will be called Apple Watch Pro. The new Pro model watch will bring a more durable casing made from titanium and will have a larger screen than the current 1.9-inch panel on the 45mm Series 7 watch.
The screen on the Apple Watch Pro is said to be more shatter-resistant and the watch will bring advanced sports tracking for swimming and trekking, a larger battery and new health sensors. Apple will target the Pro watch at extreme sports enthusiasts who would otherwise go for a Garmin smartwatch. Gurman expects the new Apple Watch Pro to start at $900-$999 when it goes on sale. He also mentions that Apple will probably eliminate its high-end Watch Edition model.
