A few days before the September 7 keynote, during which Apple should unveil new Apple Watch watches, in addition to its iPhone 14 series, many rumors about the characteristics have already leaked on the web. But since this is a wrist-worn accessory, looks are almost as important as features or functionality.
And precisely, regarding the appearance of the Apple Watch 8, new information has fallen. In a tweet posted this week, the ShrimpApplePro Twitter account, a source of leaks that is regularly relayed by the media, posted about the next Apple Watch.
In this post, he indicates that the 41-55mm models are still relevant. And besides that, Apple would offer the (PRODUCT) RED version of the Apple Watch 8 with a new shade of red. Unfortunately, the source says no more. But if the info is correct, it could bring a little novelty for those who are used to choosing Apple’s (PRODUCT) RED products. But for the moment, the info is of course to be considered with extreme caution, pending formalization.
Heres an titbits, more details about the standard Series 8:

As a reminder, Apple’s (PRODUCT) RED products are red iPhones or watches. In addition to the color, these products stand out for the fact that their purchase supports the Global Fund for the fight against HIV and against COVID-19.
In a previous series of tweets, ShrimpApplePro already mentioned the colors of the Apple Watch 8. In his post, he mentioned that the colors of the aluminum watches would be starlight, product red, and silver. As for the stainless steel version, it would be available in silver, graphite and gold colors.
An Apple Watch SE and a more expensive version in the pipeline?
The information shared by ShrimpApplePro concerns the base model, the Apple Watch 8. However, for a while, sources have been suggesting that Apple could also lift the veil on a new, more affordable smartwatch: the Apple Watch SE 2.
In addition, there would also be a “Pro” version, aimed at extreme sports enthusiasts and athletes. This one would have a more robust design, a larger screen, as well as better autonomy.
But all this has yet to be confirmed. And fortunately, in a few days, we will be able to share the official information with you.
In any case, the competition in the connected watch market will be very interesting. Indeed, while Apple is preparing to unveil its new generation of Apple Watch, Google is preparing, for its part, the release of its first Pixel connected watch. As for Samsung, it has already presented its Galaxy Watch 5 series.
