While there might not be many changes to the Apple Watch Series 8, one change could be… the undertone of the color red over the (PRODUCT)RED colorway.
According to Apple leaker ShrimpApplePro, Apple will stick to 41mm and 45mm case sizes for the Apple Watch Series 8, the same sizes currently featured on the Apple Watch Series 7.
One change mentioned by the leaker, however, is that Apple will be releasing a new shade of red for the Series 8 (PRODUCT)RED colorway.

It’s all about the Apple Watch Pro this year
Outside of the color change, which is already a very minor change, the leaker goes on to say that their source said Series 8 would have “little to no difference from Series 7.”
If so, it looks like Apple is banking on the Apple Watch Pro this year. The rumored version would 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 Gurman said the company chose the material because, while being lighter than stainless steel, it makes the Apple Watch Pro more durable than its aluminum counterparts.
The watch is also expected to feature a bigger screen inside a 47mm case, making it the biggest Apple Watch the company has ever made. It is also expected to feature the long-talked-about flat-edge design that Apple introduced with the iPhone 12.
Apple, due to the larger case, should also pack the Apple Watch Pro with a larger battery. This would make a lot of sense since this version of the watch should be marketed to people who need longer battery life like hikers, campers, etc.
We don’t have long to wait to find out if it all comes true. Apple is hosting its special “Far Out” event on Wednesday, September 7. The company, in addition to announcing Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro, is expected to unveil iPhone 14 and AirPods Pro 2.
Larger, more durable screens.
The Apple Watch Series 7 has a bigger screen, a more durable screen, and faster charging.
