While many features have been rumored over this year regarding these three watches, Gurman is bringing his latest piece of information about the Apple Watch Series 8 series. Here’s what you need to know:
For the Apple Watch Pro, Bloomberg‘s journalist has the most information. Apart from the S8 chip, body temperature sensor, and women’s health features, this high-end, rugged watch will be aimed at “heavy-duty athletes like mountain bikers, hikers, and marathon runners.”
With a “noticeably larger display,” it will feature redesigned watch faces, more fitness and health-tracking statistics, a larger battery, and the rumored low-power mode.
Gurman said this device “probably won’t appeal to all consumers, as it’s going to be bigger than most wrists.” About the retro compatibility controversy, the journalist doubled on the fact that “given the larger size, older Apple Watch bands may not look flush with the device, but the new case is designed so existing bands can still work.”
The journalist also talks about Garmin’s competitiveness and price point:
The device should appeal to people who’ve coveted the also-large Garmin offerings. Apple has been working on this new watch for a while. (…) I expect this watch to come in at least $900 to $1,000, topping the current Apple Watch Edition. For comparison, Garmin’s high-end watches cost between $1,000 and $1,500. Amazfit also competes in this category, though generally at lower prices.
