A larger case size of 47mm would give the Apple Watch Pro a bigger screen, which could measure at 1.99 inches diagonally.

The report, citing information received from “reliable sources”, also claims that the Apple Watch Pro will feature a completely flat screen, whereas existing Apple Watch models have slightly curved edges around the screen. The flat design could improve the durability of the Apple Watch Pro, which Bloombergby Mark Gurman reported will be a “robust” model designed for high-impact activities like hiking and extreme sports.

While a 47mm case size is new information, the the flat screen has already been rumored. Other features expected for the Apple Watch Pro include a titanium case, longer battery life, extended low power mode, S8 chip, and more.

Apple is expected to announce the Apple Watch Pro alongside two standard Apple Watch Series 8 models and the iPhone 14 at its September 7 Media Event. Pricing remains to be seen, but titanium Apple Watch models currently start at $799 in the US, so it would be reasonable to expect a starting price of around $799 to $999.
