Apparently the new Apple Watch Series 8 design isn't quite what we expected

It's been around since 2015, but the Apple Watch hasn't seen much in the way of a redesign over the past 7 years. Sure, bezels have shrunk a little here and there, but it's still the same old curved rectangle. And persistent rumours of a striking new look for 2022 may have just been shot down.

We've heard tell for a while that Apple is planning to introduce a new 'rugged' version of the Apple Watch, aimed toward extreme sports fans. And while new details about the design are certainly intriguing, they may be disappointing for anyone who was hoping for the much-rumoured flat-edged Apple Watch to become a reality.
