Apple Watch Series 8 rugged model to offer larger display, battery and stronger metal case

Apple is expected to announce its next smartwatch later this year in the form of the Apple Watch Series 8, though more and more rumours are hinting at a rugged model to accompany the standard edition, as well as a new SE model.

The latest report comes from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman - who has an excellent track record when it comes to Apple devices - and it claims the rugged Apple Watch will have a larger display and a stronger metal case. Gurman has previously reported that a rugged model is coming.

According to Bloomberg sources, the rugged Apple Watch model will have a display resolution of 410 x 502 pixels and a display that's nearly 2-inches compared to the current 1.9-inches. Other reports have specifically said the screen will be 1.99-inches. It is said this larger screen will allow for more information to be shown during exercise. 

The Bloomberg report also says the rugged Apple Watch would be made from a metal stronger than aluminium, though it doesn't specify what metal this might be and that it would offer a larger battery capacity, which would make sense.

The rugged Apple Watch is expected to feature the same sensors as the Apple Watch Series 8, which is rumoured to include a body temperature sensor this time around. You can read all the rumours surrounding the Apple Watch Series 8 in our separate feature.
