While there may not be a lot of changes to the Apple Watch Series 8, there may be one change that is… The red color has remained on the (PRODUCT) RED colorway.
According to Apple’s ShrimpApplePro, Apple will stick to 41mm and 45mm case sizes for the Apple Watch Series 8, which are the same sizes currently available on the Apple Watch Series 7.
However, one of the changes mentioned by the leak is that Apple will be releasing a new shade of Colored Road (PRODUCT) RED for the Series 8.

All about the Apple Watch Pro this year
Beyond the color change, which is already a very minor change, the leaker continues to say that his source said the Series 8 will have “little or no difference from the Series 7.”
If so, it looks like Apple will be participating in the Apple Watch Pro this year. The rumored version will be the company’s first addition to the Apple Watch lineup since September 2020 when it launched the Apple Watch SE.
The Apple Watch Pro is rumored to be made of titanium. Other Apple leakers like Mark Gorman said the company chose the material because, while it’s lighter than stainless steel, it makes the Apple Watch Pro more durable than its aluminum counterparts.
The watch is also expected to have a larger display inside a 47mm case, making it the largest Apple Watch the company has ever made. There are also speculations that it could feature the long-rumored flat bezel design that Apple introduced with the iPhone 12.
Apple is also expected, given the larger case, to pack the Apple Watch Pro with a larger battery. This would make a lot of sense since this version of the watch is expected to be marketed to people who need a longer battery life like hikers, campers, etc.
We don’t have long to wait to see if all this comes true. Apple is holding its own “Far Out” event on Wednesday, September 7, and the company, in addition to announcing the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro, is expected to unveil the iPhone 14 and AirPods Pro 2.
Bigger, more durable screens.
Apple Watch Series 7 features a larger display, a more durable display, and faster charging.
