The new generation of the Apple Watch is just around the corner. The company could announce very soon the Apple Watch Series 7, a new smartwatch that would maintain some of the most important features of the Series 6, but will adapt its design to match new iPhone models.
In fact, one of the most anticipated novelties of the new Apple Watch Series 7 is its redesign. Many leaks agree that the next watch will include some flat bezels, similar to those we see in the iPhone 12, and will inherit the colors of the iPad Air or new iMac with M1 chip, according to Jon Prosser.
The company also will add two new sizes: 41 and 45 mm. It is unknown, at the moment, if the belts of the current models (40 and 44 mm) will be compatible with the new measures. Apple, however, will launch new straps to accompany both versions.
The new sizes will also bring with them larger screens. The diagonal will grow slightly, although the sizes of the two versions are unknown. The inclusion of a larger screen will also allow new spheres. Apple is expected to keep the screen with LTPO technology, which adapts the refresh rate to save battery, as well as the Always-on screen.
In addition to the classic Apple Watch finishes (aluminum, titanium or a ceramic finish), the company could also announce a Series 7 with a tougher look. This version would be designed for those users who do adventure sports or activities, such as climbing, hiking, etc.
The edges of the watch would be protected with a resistant material and would include a water resistance capable of withstanding up to 50 meters deep, according to Bloomberg.
Apple Watch Series 7: new processor and more battery
The Apple Watch Series 7 will arrive with a new processor (possibly called the S7 chip) which, in theory, will offer higher performance and energy efficiency than the current model. This SoC would have a System in Package (SiP) assembly, which will allow to minimize the components in a module with two cameras and thus leave more space for other components and sensors. Although the first rumors spoke about the possibility of including new sensors related to health, the free space would finally be to include batteries of greater capacity.
Despite the larger batteries, no major changes are expected at the level of autonomy, given that the Apple Watch would have a larger screen size.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will arrive without a blood pressure sensor
Until now, rumors mentioned that the Apple Watch Series 7 would arrive with a sensor capable of measuring blood pressure. The company, in addition, could implement a body temperature meter to the existing electrocardiograms and the sensor to measure oxygen in the blood. Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg journalist who often leaks relevant information about Apple devices, says that the Series 7 will not have a blood pressure sensor.
Recently, The Wall Street Journal confirmed that Apple is working on blood pressure sensors and body temperature measurement, but both features could come in future models. Maybe on the Apple Watch Series 8.
The Apple Watch that will be launched in September will keep, yes, the electrocardiogram and the SpO2 sensor.
When will the new Apple Watch be announced?
Manzana could announce the Apple Watch Series 7 on September 14, along with the iPhone 13. The company, at the moment, has not confirmed any presentation, but the latest leaks mark that date on the calendar. The next Apple Watch, yes, will have a hard time hitting the market.
Unfortunately, several sources revealed that the company you are experiencing supply chain delays. Currently, small-scale production has been stopped to solve problems related to “design complexity”. Mass manufacturing, therefore, could be delayed. This delay it could have an impact on the going on sale or more likely on shipping times.
