According to reports, the rugged version of the Apple Watch will have a display measuring about 2 inches diagonally, while the standard version of the Apple Watch Series 8 will have a 1.9-inch display. This will make the rugged Apple Watch screen 7% larger than the largest Apple Watch on the market.

It is noted that the cost of the new Apple Watch starts at $699. Official representatives of the company have so far refrained from commenting on the subject.

According to the source, the Apple Watch brought in $38.4 billion, or about 10% of its total sales, last fiscal year. The wearables market is pretty saturated right now, leaving Apple to compete in this segment with other big players like Samsung and Fitbit.
