So far Apple has offered several distinct versions of its Apple Watch.

Apple rumored to be working on rugged Apple Watch

According to a new report from Bloomberg from earlier today, Apple is considering building a ruggedized Apple Watch and could bring it to the market later in 2021 or early 2022. Based on the report, the rugged Apple Watch will have a more durable design with corner protection and impact resistance. It will be targeted at hikers and extreme sports enthusiasts and is also said to feature improved swim tracking. That’s all we have for now, as usual, we’ll have to wait for more details before we can fill you in on Apple’s plans.
