A growing number of details about the Apple brand’s new Apple Watch design have surfaced in recent months, giving a preliminary idea of what to anticipate from the new look.
The impending high-end model of the Apple Watch Series 8 will have its first overhaul in years and a new titanium case, but it won’t have the long-rumored squared-off appearance, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. A five to seven percent larger display will make this year’s high-end Apple Watch model “a good bit bigger” than the current Apple Watch models, according to Gurman, to the point where “it might only appeal to a subset of customers.”
According to reports, the premium Apple Watch will sport the first brand-new aesthetic since the 2018 release of the Apple Watch Series 4. Contrary to rumours of a squared-off design, it will reportedly not be circular and “it also won’t have the alleged flat sides.” Gurman contrasted this by calling the new design “a development of the current rectangular shape.” Existing 45mm Apple Watch bands might not be completely compatible with the new shell due to the design.
The impending Apple Watch release, he continued, “is shaping up to be one of the company’s more intriguing product launches this year,” and it will have a case made of “a more robust formulation of titanium to make it extremely resistant.”
Earlier this year, “ShrimpApplePro,” a leaker who accurately predicted that the Apple Watch Series 7 would have a rounded shape similar to the Apple Watch Series 6, asserted that Apple was developing an Apple Watch Series 8 model with a “flat front glass display.” At first, it made sense that this information would be related to the reported new look for the premium model, but MacOtakara has subsequently confirmed that the flat display is specific to the 47mm Apple Watch “Pro.”
When the other Apple Watch Series 8 models are introduced later this year, they are anticipated to have the same 41mm and 44mm sizes as the Series 7 devices and will not be redesigned. According to Gurman’s most recent source, new iPhone and Apple Watch models will be unveiled at an event on September 7th, according to Gurman’s most recent source. Apple later confirmed this date for an event with the theme “Far out.”
The high-end Apple Watch is anticipated to include a redesign in addition to the “S8” chip, a body temperature sensor for improved sleep tracking and fertility planning, a Low Power Mode to extend battery life, and a larger battery to enable longer training durations.
