When pressed, users will be able to modify the button to launch a specific app, feature, workout type, or something else. While the Apple Watch Pro will have a completely flat display, the device will still have a rounded case, contrary to rumors.
A couple of things I’d point out regarding the Apple Watch Pro design: - No flat sides. They are rounded like the Series 7.
- The new button on the left side is probably programmable to do whatever you want. For instance, launching a specific app, feature or workout. — Mark Gurman (@markgurman) September 5, 2022
The renders show the Pro model with a Digital Crown and Side Button on the right side of the case, which makes it easier to access. The Pro model looks more rugged than standard Apple Watch models, in line with reports that it is designed for activities like hiking.
The Apple Watch Pro will have a larger display, a bigger battery, and an S8 chip, according to previous rumors.
At its special event on Wednesday, Apple is expected to announce the Apple Watch Pro along with two standard Apple Watch Series 8 models and a second- generation Apple Watch SE. According to Gurman, pricing for the Pro model could go as high as $900. At the event, Apple is expected to announce new products.
