Aimed at athletes, hikers and others who experience more extreme conditions while wearing their Apple watches, the new device will be Apple’s largest yet.

It will have approximately 7 percent more screen area than the 45mm Apple Watch Series 7 and a screen resolution of 410 x 502 pixels. Gurman speculates that Apple could use the extra screen area to offer more fitness metrics on the Apple Watch face at the same time.

In addition to a larger body and case more durable, the Sport Edition of the Apple Watch will work just like other Apple watches and have the same features that come with the Series 8.
