Apple is working on a global update of the smartwatch line. This is reported by the publication MacRumors.

Journalists refer to the Power On newsletter from Bloomberg author Mark Gurman. The specialist noted that in 2022 the American company will release two updated versions of the device – the flagship Apple Watch 8 and the budget Apple Watch SE.

Gurman did not specify what new functions the watch will receive. However, at the same time, the journalist revealed data that the company intends to introduce a completely new smartwatch. The device will be aimed at athletes and fans of an active lifestyle — the gadget will receive a case protected from physical impact. “They will be more resistant to scratches, dents, falls,” the author stressed.

Apple Watch SE is a simplified version of the Apple Watch 6, which was released in 2020. The device differs from the flagship wearable device in the absence of the function of a constantly on-screen, the option of measuring the level of oxygen in the blood, and an ECG.
