A new batch of CAD images of the Apple Watch “Pro” have been shared online , revealing the new design of the upcoming watch.
In the images shared, a new physical button appears on the left side of the Apple Watch “Pro,” which was shared earlier this morning. CAD images show the newly designed button sitting beneath three holes that are probably speaker vents.
Comparing the CADs to the current design of the Apple Watch, the Digital Crown appears much more rugged. There is a new chassis protrusion on the side of the watch that houses both the Digital Crown and the Side Button, perhaps to facilitate finger access. In contrast to the Apple Watch Series 7, the display on this watch is completely flat.
As Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman wrote in this weekend’s Power On newsletter, Apple Watch “Pro” has a significantly larger display that could be “bigger than most wrists.” Previous rumors have suggested a case size between 47mm and 48mm. According to Gurman, Apple plans to display additional metrics during workouts on the larger display and redesign the watch faces.
Apple Watch Series 4 will cost between $900 and $1,000, making it the most expensive Apple Watch ever. On Wednesday, September 7, Apple is expected to announce the all-new Apple Watch “Pro.” It will join the new Apple Watch Series 8 and an updated Apple Watch SE in the lineup.
