Apple may launch rugged watch for extreme sports

Apple Inc. is considering launching an Apple Watch with a rugged casing aimed at athletes, hikers and others who use the device in more extreme environments, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, California-based technology giant has internally discussed introducing such a Watch variation later in 2021 or 2022 at the earliest, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private matters.

This is at least the second time Apple has mulled a rugged smartwatch. After launching the first version of the Apple Watch in 2015, the company weighed a new model to better appeal to extreme sports athletes.

Would definitely get this if they make them. Garmin watches feel very light on the wrist compared to Apple. Would love something similar.

Strap, screen, and battery sold separately. Most people already have these things so there is no need to include them as it just adds to e-waste.
