Rumors for Apple Watch Explorer Edition
According to claims in the US press, Apple could unveil a “rugged” smartwatch (Apple Watch Explorer Edition?) towards the end of this year. Some “different-looking” Apple Watch versions have been presented so far in the axis of collaborations developed with popular sports and fashion brands such as Nike and Hermès. The fact is that Apple has generally limited itself to the software side when it comes to directly develop its smartwatch models that don’t include third-party designs. However, given the latest claims, this situation could change in some ways in 2021.
Rugged Smartwatch – Apple Watch Explorer Edition
According to claims in the U.S. press, Apple will also announce a “rugged” smartwatch at its highly anticipated iPhone event toward the end of the year. The smartwatch, to be called the Apple Watch Explorer Edition, is said to promise a much more rugged design.
For a rugged Apple Watch, there are already very affordable device cases from some manufacturers like UAG, OtterBox, or Spigen. However, it is believed that Apple believes it is time to take the issue beyond a simple watch case. At this point, it is claimed that the Apple Watch Explorer Edition will include a much stronger exterior similar to Casio’s G-Shock watches and be waterproof. On the other hand, why would people choose the Apple Watch that offers waterproof instead of cases that make the smartwatch waterproof? Early indications are that Apple should offer interesting improvements on the software side. We will continue to share the speculations about this mysterious smartwatch.
