The most recent Apple Watch Series 8, Watch Pro, and SE 2 tidbits ahead of the iPhone 14 event

Apple will unveil a new Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Pro, and Apple Watch SE 2 in three days. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman shared the most recent information about these new watches in his Power On newsletter, ahead of the iPhone 14 event on Wednesday.

While many features for these three watches have been rumoured this year, Gurman is bringing his latest piece of information about the Apple Watch Series 8 series. Here’s what you should know:

Apple Watch Series 8: As previously stated, this watch will include a new body-temperature sensor as well as fertility-related features for women.
Apple Watch SE 2: This watch will retain the same design as its predecessor, but will be upgraded from the S5 chip to the S8 chip, which is expected to share many similarities with the S6 and S7 processors.
Bloomberg’s journalist has the most information on the Apple Watch Pro. This high-end, rugged watch will be aimed at “heavy-duty athletes like mountain bikers, hikers, and marathon runners,” in addition to the S8 chip, body temperature sensor, and women’s health features.

It will have a “noticeably larger display,” redesigned watch faces, more fitness and health-tracking statistics, a bigger battery, and the rumoured low-power mode.

Gurman stated that this device “probably won’t appeal to all consumers, as it’s going to be bigger than most wrists,” and that “given the larger size, older Apple Watch bands may not look flush with the device, but the new case is designed so existing bands can still work.”

The journalist also discusses Garmin’s competitiveness and pricing:

People who have coveted the similarly large Garmin offerings should be interested in this device. Apple has been developing this new watch for some time. (…) I anticipate that this watch will cost between $900 and $1,000, exceeding the current Apple Watch Edition. Garmin’s high-end watches, by comparison, cost between $1,000 and $1,500. Amazfit also competes in this category, albeit at lower prices.
