The increase in display size will be the third in the history of the Apple Watch.
Apple is preparing to release a new model of smart watches that will be designed for extreme sports and outdoor activities. The new version of Apple Watch will receive a durable metal case, an extended battery, and the largest display in the line.
The watch diagonal will exceed 5 cm, increasing by 7% compared to the latest version. Display resolution - 410x502 pixels. Due to its size, the watch will be able to display more data about the user's physical activity and health.
The case of the new version of Apple Watch will be made of more durable metal, and the screen will receive shock protection. The device will be powered by a new S8 processor. This will be the first time the company has kept the same overall performance on the Apple Watch for three generations in a row.
The watch will be equipped with more accurate tracking sensors that will allow you to determine the height of the ascent as accurately as possible, as well as an advanced body temperature sensor.
It is assumed that the new “sporty” version will be officially presented in 2022 at the same time as the Apple Watch Series 8 and an updated version of the more budgetary Apple Watch SE with a display diagonal of about 4.5 cm. Prices for Apple smartwatches start at $699, but the model for extreme sports will be more expensive.
Apple Watch is part of the Apple division that combines the production and sale of wearable devices and accessories. At the end of 2021, the division accounted for 10% of the company's revenue, which is equivalent to $38.4 billion.
