Apple Watch Series 7: All there is to know about Apple’s next watch

By | September 5, 2021

The Apple Watch completely changed wearable technology as we know it. Sure, there were smartwatches before the Apple Watch, but none were as impactful, influential, and well-implemented. The Apple Watch Series 6 was Apple’s best effort yet. Rumors indicate that Apple will take things to the next level with the Apple Watch Series 7.

Traditionally, Apple launched a redesign for its iPhone and Apple Watch every three years. For the Apple Watch, this is the year. As a result, we’re expecting the Apple Watch Series 7 to bring a number of changes.

Excited for the Apple Watch Series 7? Or just want to learn more about the upcoming smartwatch? Here’s everything we know about Apple’s next smartwatch so far.

Apple Watch Series 7 design

As mentioned, Apple brings a redesign to its mobile devices every three years — and this is the year for the Apple Watch. Rumors indicate that the device will get a flat-edged design that brings it more in line with the iPhone, higher-end iPad, and iMac.

This has been corroborated by serial leaker Jon Prosser. Prosser claims to have seen renders of the upcoming device, and has created his own images based on those renders. Prosser also says that the device will come in a series of colors and that there may be smaller bezels around the display than previous-generation Apple Watches.

Bloomberg’s Mark German agrees with this speculation, saying that the Apple Watch Series 7 will sport thinner bezels and that Apple has been testing a new “lamination technique” that will bring the display closer to the top cover of the Apple Watch. Gurman’s sources also note that the watch may be “slightly thicker,” but that it won’t be a noticeable difference. If it means a larger battery, we’re completely fine with that trade-off.

YouTuber Matt Talks Tech has even made a video showing off the stunning new design, based on the leaked renders.

Counterfeit clones of the Apple Watch Series 7 have been popping up too. Images showing the fakes were posted on Twitter by user “Majin Buu,” and while they don’t show a real Apple product, they may give a good look at what the Series 7 will end up looking like.

Some rumors suggest that the new sizes may mean that old Apple Watch bands won’t be compatible with new Apple Watch models. We’ll have to see if that turns out to be true. If it is it would be very frustrating for users that have a collection of Apple Watch bands.

Apple Watch Series 7 health tracking

Apple has emphasized health tracking on the Apple Watch since its release, and that’s unlikely to change any time soon. The device will sport the same fitness-tracking features as on the Series 6, but it may add some new ones too. Chief among those could be blood glucose monitoring.

Rumors about blood glucose monitoring on the Apple Watch have been swirling for a few years now. It’s clear that Apple is working on bringing that tech to the Watch. But there are conflicting rumors as to whether it will be on the Series 7. A report from ETNews notes that blood glucose monitoring will be a standout feature of the Apple Watch Series 7, however, a newer report from Bloomberg instead suggests that the tech may not be ready for the Series 7.

Some rumors have been hinting at the idea that Apple might be working on blood pressure monitoring as well. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has a sensor for blood pressure monitoring, so it wouldn’t be that surprising to see it — especially given the fact that we’ve seen related patents from Apple.

Apple Watch Series 7 specs

The Apple Watch is already an incredibly functional smartwatch, and it takes years for the device to slow down and not be able to handle new software updates. Like in previous years, the Apple Watch Series 7 will likely get a spec-bump that makes it even more capable, and able to keep up with watchOS 8 and other related features from Apple.

Some rumors, like a report from DigiTimes, suggest that the new S7 chip will support a new double-sided System in Package (or SiP), which could give the device a serious battery life boost. This has been corroborated by another report from Economic Daily News, which notes that the chip will be smaller.

Other reports, like one from Economic Daily News, note that Apple may be focusing whole-heartedly on Apple Watch battery life. In fact, the company may save new health sensors for the Apple Watch Series 8.

Apple Watch Series 7 price and availability

The device is expected to be released at around the same time as previous Apple Watch models. That’s to say, Apple will likely announce the device sometime around mid-September. Usually, Apple’s keynotes are on a Tuesday. Rumors indicate that Apple will hold an event on September 17, and it may be where the new Apple Watch is launched. That said, rumors also indicate that there will be multiple events in September from Apple.

When it comes to pricing, the device will probably be a similar price as previous-generation models. In other words, it will start at around $399 for the entry-level 40mm model, or $429 for the 44mm model.
