CMF by Nothing Watch Pro 2: A sleek redesign on the horizon

CMF by Nothing is gearing up to launch its latest smartwatch, the Watch Pro 2, on July 8. The company teased fans earlier today with a glimpse of the device on Twitter, offering the first official look at this eagerly awaited sequel. It turns out it is quite different from the original.

A striking new design

The Watch Pro 2 sports a round face, moving away from the square design of its predecessor. This circular shape is complemented by a sleek bezel and an aluminum alloy body, promising a more refined and premium aesthetic. A notable feature is the rotating crown on the right-hand side of the device, suggesting enhanced navigation capabilities.

This redesign marks a considerable shift from the first-generation Watch Pro, which was characterized by its large, square face and somewhat chunky appearance. The move to a circular design aligns the Watch Pro 2 more closely with traditional watch aesthetics, potentially broadening its appeal.

Remembering the original

To appreciate the evolution, it’s worth revisiting the features of the first Watch Pro. Retailing at an accessible $49, it offered impressive specifications for its price point. The device boasts a 1.96-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 410 x 502 pixels, delivering vibrant visuals. It came equipped with a multi-system GPS chip and support for 110 sport modes, catering to fitness enthusiasts.

One of its standout features was the ability to make Bluetooth calls, facilitated by a built-in speaker and microphone. The watch’s durability was ensured by an IP68 rating, making it resistant to water and dust. Perhaps most impressively, its simple operating system contributed to a remarkable battery life of up to 13 days on a single charge.

Expectations for the sequel

While specific details about the Watch Pro 2’s features remain under wraps, the redesign suggests that CMF by Nothing is not afraid to experiment. The sleeker look implies a focus on style alongside functionality, potentially appealing to a broader audience.

Despite the more premium appearance, I expect the Watch Pro 2 to maintain its position in the budget smartwatch category. This strategy would align with the brand’s reputation for offering feature-rich devices at competitive price points.
