Like its smartphone lineup, Apple plans to launch pro versions for its smartwatch starting with the Apple Watch Series Pro , which would be priced so high that it would cost more than the standard iPhone 14 .
The insider and expert on the events of Apple products, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, shared in his most recent newsletter that this Pro version of the Apple Watch will be aimed at users who practice extreme sports, but in addition to being a tool for athletes it will be the top of the range of this line of watches .
According to a report on the Applesfera website , this smartwatch will have a more robust casing, built with a more resistant material such as titanium. As for its screen, it will be the largest: almost two inches .
Also, this Apple Watch will come with watchOS 9 , with the expected improved low power mode. For now, the system is still under development.
A price… unattainable?
Although this information is not official, it makes sense that Apple has chosen the Pro denomination for its high-end Apple Watch, considering that products such as MacBook, Mac, iPhone and even AirPods have had Pro versions.
What is most surprising about this report is the launch price of this Apple Watch Pro. A high-end smartwatch with a high-end value: between $900 and $999.
A thousand dollars for a smart watch? You definitely have to think about it. For example, rumors suggest that the standard iPhone 14 will be priced at $799 and the Max version ( which could be called 14 Plus ) will be priced at $899.
In other words, the Apple Watch Series 8 Pro would be more expensive than two of the versions of the next series of smartphones from the Cupertino company. would you buy it
