‘Apple Watch Series 8 in three sizes’
If you want to buy an Apple Watch, you should not only choose a certain model, but also a size that suits you. Apple may make that choice a little more difficult next year. Display expert Ross Young, who often has early information about displays of smartphones and other devices, is now suggesting on Twitter that Apple will put a larger display in the Apple Watch Series 8 in 2022.
But will Apple then make current models bigger again? That chance does not seem so great, because in a subsequent tweet, the analyst says that you should not be surprised if there are three sizes of the Apple Watch Series 8. So it seems that in addition to 41mm and 45mm, there might be a larger variant. He does not provide further details, such as the dimensions. For example, will Apple opt for a 48 or maybe 50mm Apple Watch?
Don't be surprised if there are 3 sizes next year…

This year, the Apple Watch also got a bigger screen. The Apple Watch Series 7 comes in the new sizes 41mm and 45mm, instead of 40mm and 44mm. Although the cabinet itself has only become one millimeter larger, the screen is about 20% larger because the edges are a lot smaller.
There have been rumors before that Apple is working on an extra robust Apple Watch for athletes (the so-called rugged version). According to sources, this model will be released next year. It could well be that this version has a larger display, so that you can read the screen better during extreme sports. We previously wrote why an extra robust Apple Watch is a good idea.
