According to Gurman, the display will have a diagonal of almost two inches. The extreme sports model will have about 7% more screen area than the largest current Apple Watch. The display will also have a resolution of around 410 by 502 pixels. Gurman suggests that the larger screen could be used to display more fitness metrics or information on watch faces.

In addition, Gurman says the extreme sports watch will use a stronger metal than aluminum and the screen will be more resistant to shock. The watch is also expected to have a larger battery to withstand longer workouts. Gurman also says the watch is expected to have improved tracking metrics, such as the ability to detect altitude while hiking. As with the Apple Watch 8, the extreme sports model is expected to be able to detect fever by measuring the wearer’s body temperature.

An extreme sports model will reportedly be announced later this year along with two other models: the Apple Watch Series 8 and an updated version of the low-cost Apple Watch SE. Gurman says the Apple Watch Series 8 will retain its 1.9-inch screen size, while the Apple Watch SE will keep its 1.78-inch screen. The extreme sports version of the Apple Watch is expected to cost more than the standard stainless steel Apple Watch, which currently costs $699.

All new Apple Watches will use the S8 processor, with similar performance to the S7 processor in the Apple Watch Series 7, according to Gurman. Apple usually announces its new watch models in September at the same time as new iPhones are released.
