It’s not yet known exactly what type of metal Apple will use in the rugged version of the watch, but, given that it will be dedicated to extreme sports enthusiasts, it is likely that it will be a material lighter. Unfortunately, it’s also not revealed to what extent customers can expect an improvement in battery life.

In the report, Mark Gurman specifies that the Apple Watch Series 8 will have a modification for the screen size, however this will not be the case on the other models which will keep the size of the Series 7, a choice quite curious from Apple:

The rugged version of the Apple Watch will get an almost 2-inch diagonal screen, while a new standard Apple Watch Series 8 will retain the current Apple Watch Series 7’s 1.9-inch diagonal screen size. . A scheduled update to the lower-end Apple Watch SE will also retain the current screen size.

With longer battery life and more resistance for activities like surfing, BMX, climbing, snowboarding… The latest Apple Watch model is sure to be a hit among athletes. This category of connected watch users who now prefer other manufacturers who develop watches more focused on extreme sports will probably approach Apple with this Apple Watch which will be dedicated to them.
