It’s fairly quiet on this planet of wearable tech proper now, so what about some piping scorching Apple Watch rumor information to maintain you heat this Holiday season?
Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, creator of the Power On publication and in all probability the most effective linked Apple-watcher going, has revealed the rugged Apple Watch mission goes forward for 2022. He believes it is going to be launched alongside a new Apple Watch SE 2 and Apple Watch Series 8.
Gurman has been on this rumor earlier than, and revealed its existence again in March 2021.
The rugged Apple Watch is claimed to be designed for excessive sports activities, rising scratch resistance and, we presume, upping water resistance.
The present Apple Watch is rated WR50, which is sweet as much as 50 meters. But Apple’s tips advise in opposition to ‘high velocity’ water, which implies some sports activities are off the menu.
It would open the Apple Watch as much as a new subset of customers – though we really feel that there must be some motion on battery life. Adventure sports activities watches are inclined to measure battery life in weeks, and supply days of GPS monitoring.
Also talked about within the Gurman publication was a comply with as much as the Apple Watch SE.
The SE was launched in 2020 as a mid-range various to the Series 6 – with out most of the bells and whistles. There’s no ECG and SpO2 sensor, and the always-on show can be left off. However, it retains all the core options, at a extra wallet-friendly $279/£269 for the 40mm.
We felt it supplied a lot better worth than the Series 6, though the new design of the Series 7 has addressed that imbalance.
What might the Apple Watch SE 2 deliver? That’s the large query. Apple has not often up to date SE merchandise, and hasn’t moved to enhance the Series 3 one iota, which has remained on sale since its launch in 2016.
So shade us a bit sceptical.
