According to several recent rumors, Apple is expected to introduce a more expensive Apple Watch “Pro” this year in addition to the regular new Series 8 models. And since we’re only a month away from Apple’s new product announcements, the current Apple Watch Series 7 Edition is now sold out in the US and several other countries.
Based on Apple’s website, most Apple Watch Series 7 Edition models are now sold out. As he noted MacRumorsthe product is not available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and other countries – although you can still find the 45mm version in some configurations.
In most cases, the Apple Watch Series 7 Edition is listed as “currently unavailable” in the Apple online store. It’s also hard to find one of these models available by selecting the in-store pickup option, suggesting that the current generation Apple Watch Edition is indeed sold out. This comes ahead of the announcement of the new Apple Watch Series 8 and the first Apple Watch Pro.
For those not in the know, the Apple Watch Edition is a more expensive version of the Apple Watch made of titanium. In previous years, Apple Watch Editions were also available in gold and ceramic. However, despite the more premium materials, the Apple Watch Edition has exactly the same hardware as the regular Apple Watch models.
Apple Watch Pro
This year, it looks like Apple will take a different approach to the Apple Watch line. While the Apple Watch Series 8 is supposed to be a minor upgrade compared to the Series 7, the company is also working on a new model called “Apple Watch Pro” designed for extreme sports. This Pro model will have a more durable design and a different form factor than the current Apple Watch.
Bloomberg’Mark Gurman recently announced that the Apple Watch Pro will have a 7% larger display, which will also allow Apple to put a bigger battery in it. More than that, this watch should be made of titanium, just like the Apple Watch Edition, to be more durable than the Apple Watch made of aluminum and stainless steel.
Gurman also said that the Apple Watch Pro is expected to start at $900 due to the larger display and premium material, bringing it closer to the price of the Apple Watch Edition, which starts at $799. With that in mind, it won’t be a surprise if Apple discontinues the Edition models in favor of a new Pro model.
With the Apple Watch Series 7 Edition now sold out in multiple countries, that sounds even more likely.
Of course, the Apple Watch Pro will also have the new body temperature sensor expected in the Apple Watch Series 8. However, none of this year’s models will have a faster chip compared to the Apple Watch Series 7, which have the same CPU as the Apple Watch Series 6.
Apple is likely to introduce the new Apple Watch family in September alongside the new iPhones. And if you’re looking for a new Apple Watch at a great price, be sure to check out Amazon’s special offers.
