What is known about the Apple Watch Pro and why they are needed

Extreme sports enthusiasts who are also Apple Watch usersnot the first year they ask Apple to release protected version of the clock. After all, no matter how strong and protected they are regular Apple Watch, extreme sports, even they are not always able to survive. And this year, the company from Cupertino finally listened to the desires of customers. At the next presentation on September 7, it is expected Apple Watch Pro release. It seems that it could be easier than just making a durable watch case?

The Apple Watch Pro is going to be a really big watch.

But Apple has its own vision of the situation. As you probably know, any secure gadget most often looks very awkward or simply ugly. Given the fact that Apple invests huge sums in the design of its devices, it becomes clear that Cupertino simply cannot produce such a thing. As a result, this fact and the new features of watchOS 9 suggest that the Apple Watch Pro will not be designed for extreme sports at all.

Apple Watch Pro — price

In addition to the usual sensors, it will also be possible to measure the temperature.

We have all seen a truly secure device at least once: a huge black rubberized case, in which sometimes even a screen is not easy to find. Everyone understands that Apple under no circumstances will release the Apple Watch in this form. Since the very first version, metal has always been used, be it aluminum, steel or titanium and glass. Depending on the version, the lower part was either plastic or ceramic. It is simply impossible to imagine the Apple Watch from any other materials.

Famous insider Mark Gurman reportedthat the Pro version of the Apple watch will be made of titanium. This confirms the fact that it should have a more durable body than regular versions. At the same time, it is not completely clear whether it will remain on sale Apple Watch Edition with a similar titanium case or will be withdrawn from sale. Externally, the clock will remain rounded. No flat side faces are foreseen in this generation. It is assumed that Apple Watch Pro will get a temperature sensor, thanks to which you can track fluctuations in body temperature. It is unlikely that his readings will be as accurate as possible, because the skin temperature on the arm will be used, but you can understand the dynamics without much difficulty.

The new watch will have the largest screen size in Apple Watch history. According to the latest data, it will be 47 millimeters. Against the background of this information, rumors immediately appeared that the old Bands won’t fit Apple Watch Pro. However, almost immediately Gurman denied this information. In his opinion, old straps and bracelets will fit the larger version without any problems.

The most interesting thing in this situation is the price. It is expected that it will be at the level of 900-1000 dollars. Which is more expensive than the Apple Watch Edition. Considering that it is the Apple Watch Pro that will receive the most advanced features regarding sports, the cost is not even surprising.

Workouts on Apple Watch

On Apple Watch Series 7, you have to swipe to view your heart rate zones. The Apple Watch Pro puts all of this information on the main workout screen.

At the very beginning, I noted that the Apple Watch Pro will not be designed for extreme sports. This is most likely true. Taking into account the fact that they will have a classic design, just with an enlarged screen and a titanium case, there will be nothing fundamentally protected and distinctive from the current versions in them.

But the new screen size will appear in Apple Watch Pro not just like that. watchOS 9 brings more information about training and health to the athlete. And it’s not just done. Apparently, the Apple Watch Pro will be designed for those involved in endurance sports. Long cycling, marathon running, triathlon. All this requires not only additional information on the watch screen, but also a long battery life. For example, at the 2016 New York City Marathon, runners were warned on their Apple Watch that the watch might not have enough charge to run the entire race.

This confirms the fact that Cupertino has developed a new power saving mode for the Apple Watch Series 8 and Pro. We talked about him in a separate article. Most likely, it will be hardware and for this reason will not appear on the watches of the previous generation. At the same time, after its activation, it will be possible to use the main functions of the watch simply with less power consumption. What restrictions will appear on the watch at the time of its activation is currently unknown.

It is expected that thanks to its use it will be possible to extend the operating time to three full days. This will be an excellent result, given the features that Apple Watch provides to its users. Separately, it should be noted that the new training data that appeared in watchOS 9, will look very organically on the enlarged watch screen. In particular, heart rate zones will fit right on the first workout screen without the need for additional scrolling. Most likely, in some modes, Apple will even allow you to choose what exactly the user needs for high-quality tracking of their performance.

If we analyze everything that is currently known about the Apple Watch Pro, the idea that this gadget will be created for extreme sports will disappear by itself. Most likely, those who wanted exactly the most secure device will be upset. But it should be understood that Apple will never sacrifice design for the sake of security. If you are involved in sports that require a long operating time on a single charge and the greatest possible functionality, then Apple Watch Pro will be designed just for you.
