According to the indiscretions of Mark Gurman, journalist for the Bloomberg site, Apple is preparing the launch of three Apple Watches in 2022. Alongside the Apple Watch Series 8, the Cupertino company could therefore offer a redesign of the Apple Watch SE, but also a brand new model dedicated to extreme sports.
While the Apple Watch Series 7 has just landed in French stores since the end of 2021, all eyes are already on its successor, the supposed Apple Watch Series 8. Some unofficial information has already been published on the canvas about him. Thus, we recently learned that the Apple Watch Series 8 would not have dedicated sensors for measuring blood pressure.
And precisely, this information has just been confirmed by Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, renowned in particular for his indiscretions concerning Apple products. According to its sources, it will indeed be necessary to do without major improvements in terms of health sensors with the Apple Watch 2022.

The Cupertino company wants to leave three Apple Watches in 2022
Despite everything, the journalist still has excellent news. According to him, the Cupertino company intends to launch three models of Apple Watch this year. We would obviously find the Apple Watch Series 8, but also a redesign of the Apple Watch SE while the last would obviously be dedicated to extreme sports. Unfortunately, we do not have more details on this model.
“I don’t expect there to be any major new health sensors this year, other than the possible inclusion of the much-talked-about body temperature feature. But expect major updates to activity tracking and faster chips across the board.” he explains in his newsletter published on the 9To5Mac site.
Other important information, Mark Gurman says that the Apple Watch Series 3 will finally retire in 2022. It must be said that its use has become particularly complicated. Since the release of the iOS 14.6 update in May 2021, owners are required to restore the smartwatch before installing a new software version. It would be logical to see Apple withdraw from the market a product that requires tedious manipulations to be kept up to date.
