Apple is said to be targeting high-end rugged smartwatches from companies like Garmin, with these new beefy Apple Watch models.
Other high-end offerings from Garmin include their tactix 7 and tactix Delta smartwatches ($1,229 CAD), which meet military standards for tactical operations such as night vision compatibility, high-altitude release points, kill switch, plus offer up to 21 days of battery life (something we may never see in an Apple Watch).
