The Apple Watch Pro is said to be incompatible with the company’s older watch strap. According to a tipster, the lack of compatibility with older watch straps is due to the larger display with a 47mm or 48mm case, with Apple offering a wider band with the smartwatch. Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that the older strap may be compatible with the Apple Watch Pro, but won’t fit as well or natively. As per an earlier report, it is said to be a rugged smartwatch with satellite calling and messaging support. It is also tipped to sport a flat display with a metal case.
Tipster Uncle Pan shared Via Weibo, that the rumored Apple Watch Pro will not feature backwards compatibility for the straps from the older generation smartwatch. It is set to feature a bigger display with either 47mm or 48mm case, which accompanies the wider watch band.
On the other hand, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg said: Via Twitter said the Apple Watch Pro will support older bands, but they may not fit or look comfortable due to the larger display.
I believe the Apple Watch Pro will support older bands – although they probably won’t fit or look comfortable given the size of the new watch.
