As per the reports, there could be more than one release for Apple watches in 2022. Apart from the Apple Watch 8, there have been updates that there would be another high-end launch of Apple watches. The newly launched watch would be larger compared to the other smartwatches.
This would mean that the watches would be much more popular than the other Apple watches. However, a significant aspect of these watches, which could be a point of discord among the users, is the strap design. Apple’s pro watch, which is all set to be released during the Far Out event on September 7, would be released with a different strap design which would not be compatible with the other Apple watches released.
This would be the first time the strap is changed, which has remained constant since its first release in 2015.
About Apple Watch Pro
The new segment of Apple watches will have the title ‘Pro’ added to it to emphasize that the watch will have pro features similar to the pro versions of iPhones and iPads. The watch will be of great use for sports enthusiasts as there would already be sports-focused versions of the Apple Watch in the Nike edition.
Apple Watch Pro will be released with watch sizes of 41mm and 45 mm. The watch will have a sturdier metal build than the usual aluminum build watches. These Apple watches will have a better water resistance capability and be better durable than the other Apple Watches. Also, the watches will have a rugged, water-resistant screen which will be best for long use. Apple Watch Pro will also have the advanced S8 chipset with performance similar to S7 chipsets.
These watches come with continuous 18 hours of battery life, which will be great for heavy usage. Also, these watches would be compatible with satellite networking to help you make emergency calls when the service is available.
With all the added features, the new Apple Watch Pro could have been an absolute hit, but the only aspect lagging behind is the watch’s strap.
The only Allegedly Negative Aspect
While there are reports that the new straps are incompatible with other apple watches, it does not make much difference. This is because users may keep using the same strap of previous Apple watches with the new watches they purchase, only when they are of the same size.
For example, we may match the bands of watches from the Apple Watch Series 3 with watches of similar size. The 41 mm bands may work perfectly with the 38mm Apple smartwatches. Similarly, the 45mm watch bands may work well with the 42mm and 44 mm watch cases.
However, as the new Apple watches to be launched are bigger, they would not be compatible with the bands of previous models. But it is safe to assume that Apple will come up with new variants of Apple watch straps so that the users have several variants to choose from.
So that was all about the alleged Apple watch strap discord, which has been a popular topic of discussion for quite some time; with all the disagreement about the Apple watch straps, it’s safe to say that for users who prioritize features over styling aspects the new Apple watch pro would be a terrific purchase.
