According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, the impending high-end model of the Apple Watch Series 8 will have the first redesign of the gadget in years as well as a new titanium case. However, the device will not have the long-rumored squared-off style.

“It might only appeal to a subset of customers,” Gurman said in the newest edition of his “Power On” newsletter about this year’s high-end Apple Watch model, which is “a good bit bigger” than the current Apple Watch models. Seven percent more screen space is scheduled to be added to the gadget.

Gurman confirmed that the high-end Apple Watch will feature the first fresh design since the launch of the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018. A squared-off shape has been rumoured but is unlikely to be true, as “it also won’t have those rumoured flat sides.” Instead, Gurman described the new design as “a development of the current rectangular shape.”

He stated that it will have a casing constructed of “a more durable formulation of titanium to make it exceptionally sturdy.” According to Gurman, a new Low Power Mode will allow the device to go for many days on a single charge, further extending battery life.

The only new health feature that is anticipated for the Apple Watch Series 8 is a sensor that can measure the wearer’s body temperature. Blood-pressure monitoring is not anticipated to be available until 2025, and blood-glucose monitoring is not set to be ready until “closer to the end of the decade.”

Gurman went on to say that “the imminent release of the Apple Watch is shaping up to be one of the company’s more anticipated product launches this year.”
