Apple Inc. is giving its smartwatch a bigger facelift, with the largest display thus far and a larger battery and "rugged metal casing," Bloomberg reported late Wednesday, citing sources . The new watch will be designed for extreme sports enthusiasts, and will boast a screen that's nearly 2 inches across. Apple will also roll out a new standard Apple Watch Series 8 that will maintain the current 1.9-inch screens. The bigger screen would allow for a user to display simultaneous fitness metrics and the strong metal used for the casing will be tougher, along with a shatter-resistant screen. An Apple spokesman decline to offer Bloomberg a comment on plans for the new rugged smartwatch.
