As Bloomberg reports, Apple is considering adding a new model to its range of Apple Watches. The watch should be aimed at athletes and be equipped with a robust case with impact ability and a protective exterior.
Apple Watch for athletes with a robust case
The current models of the smartwatch consist of a housing with an aluminum, steel or titanium exterior. The idea is probably to build a rubberized outside or a complete housing. That wouldn’t look as elegant, but it is less prone to scratches and damage.
The Apple Watch, which has been on the market since 2015, is in the version with the aluminum case very popular with runners and people who train in the gym, but is less suitable for outdoor sports. The glass display or the housing can be damaged too easily if, for example, you hit the rock face while climbing.
With the new model and the rubberized housing, that would no longer be a problem. According to Bloomberg, the model is also known as the “Explorer Edition” at Apple. The report also announced that the watch will be launched on the market at the end of this year.
