A new report states that the upcoming Apple Watch Pro will see a refreshed design, going with a rectangular face instead of a circular dial. Moreover, the new rugged Watch Pro could sport a bigger display.
Mark Gurman, in his Power On newsletter for Bloomberg, has added on to his set of predictions for Apple’s upcoming Watch Pro. Gurman says that the Pro model will be seven percent larger than the current Apple Watch. Notably, the smartwatch will get a revamped design. To recall, the last time the Cupertino-based company updated the design was back in 2018.

According to the report, the upcoming rugged Apple Watch Pro will not sport a circular dial, it will be “an evolution of the current rectangular shape.” Moreover, contrary to rumours, the smartwatch will not have flat sides. In keeping with the rugged theme, the Watch Pro will have a “more durable formulation of titanium to make it extra rugged,” adds the report.
Gurman reiterates that the upcoming high-end Apple Watch Pro will come with a longer battery life. He speculates that it could function for multiple days on a single charge, thanks to the new low-power mode. Additionally, it will come with a body temperature sensor. Gurman believes that future Apple Watch models could also feature a blood-pressure checker. However, it may not arrive until 2025. Another anticipated feature is the glucose monitor, which could take even longer. The report states that it may make its way to Apple Watches by the end of the decade.
