TL;DR

  • Leaked renders have revealed the design of the Apple Watch Pro ahead of its September 7 launch.
  • The smartwatch is arguably the largest ever in the Apple family and could have a new programmable button.

The Apple event is now just a day away and a leak has revealed the alleged design of the so-called Apple Watch Pro.

Rumors of Apple’s first Pro smartwatch have been circulating for a while. It is expected to be a rugged smartwatch and leaked CAD renders shared by 91Mobiles indeed show a sizeable wearable.

The publication confirms an earlier message from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who says the Apple Watch Pro will have the largest screen ever on any Apple smartwatch. According to the report, it could measure 49mm, making it fairly taller than the top-of-the-line 45mm Apple Watch Series 7.

Interestingly, the renders show an extra button on the left side of the frame (pictured above). Gurman, who? confirmed the accuracy of the displays, suggests that this new button is programmable to do what users want, such as launch specific apps, workouts, or other functions.

Elsewhere, the Apple Watch Pro makes another noticeable design change. The digital crown now sits on a sturdy protrusion on the right side, giving the smartwatch a rougher look.
