APPLE WATCH SERIES 7: WHAT TO EXPECT?

Apple has introduced a new smartwatch every year since.so we're confident an Apple Watch Series 7 is the pipeline. The Apple Watch 7 release is coming closer, and  despite the limited leaks concerning the upcoming smartwatch, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

As a follow-up to the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch 7 should come with a handful of upgrades that make the best smartwatch even better. We may see a new health sensor, enhanced display, longer battery life and more. There's even talk of an all-new, flat-edged design.

 DESIGN

The Apple Watch design hasn't changed in several years. But it's possible the Apple Watch 7 design will be different, according to a leak from Jon Prosser. In May, Prosser teased Apple Watch 7 renders with a flat-edged chassis, as well as a slew of fun color options.

We're hearing that this year's Apple Watch will feature the most radical redesign since the original came out in 2015. This will include a flatter body and a new green colour; we're also hearing rumours of an edge-to-edge screen, and there may even be two new sizes, with 41mm and 45mm models replacing the 40mm and 44mm options.

 

We expect the Apple Watch Series 7 to be released in mid-September 2021.Apple is indeed readying new Apple Watch models for launch. A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, A2478. These will probably be new Apple Watch Series 7 models.

 

The Apple Watch Series 4 made some big design changes in terms of display and the Series 5, Series 6 and Watch SE adopt the same design. The general style and shape remain the same as the original Watch, but the newer watches offer a lot more screen in similar footprints.It could be therefore, that the Series 7 offers some bigger design changes.The Rumour has it a round watch face and wrap-around flexible display are being researched, but there's also been talk of a squared-edge design for the Series 7.It's also said the display will be flatter and closer to the front glass, while the casing itself is said to be slightly thicker.

HEALTH AND FITNESS

In terms of features, we expect more health and fitness features on the Series 7. Health and fitness are the twin prongs of Apple's strategy for the Apple Watch - and the firm has been steadily adding related features with each generation of the product. The Apple Watch Series 6 continued this tradition with the inclusion of blood oxygen monitoring, but for one reason or another (most likely the avoidance of delay) this feature was never cleared by the FDA. By the time the Series 7 arrives we hope Apple will have obtained FDA approval, or changed its strategy in some other way that means we can place greater reliance on the accuracy of blood oxygen measurements. Apple is also believed to be planning to addblood sugar monitoring to the Apple Watch 7. 

BATTERY

Battery life is one of those things that everyone says is a priority, but ends up getting trampled by the desire to include energy-intensive new features and upgraded components. But this year may be different.

We know, based on a report from the Economic Daily News, that the new S7 chip will take up significantly less space inside the Apple Watch Series 7 than the S6 did in the Series 6. And this will free up space for new or larger components.Apple revealed sleep tracking as part of watchOS 7, meaning it is available on older Apple Watches too, but it isn't as detailed as some other devices on the market.Rumored colors for the Apple Watch 7 include a new sage green color, which Prosser compares to the green option for the AirPods Max, Apple's over-ear headphones.

FEATURES

Prosser's renders of the Apple Watch 7 include red, blue, black and silver, in addition to sage green, though we don't know yet whether these are the actual colors Apple will release. Apple will include a Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the Series 7. This could be either under the display itself.

There's been talk for a while now about Apple replacing the OLED displays on the Apple Watch with either mini-LED or micro-LED panels. The advantage of the newer displays is that they can be thinner and offer better energy-efficiency, which leads to improved battery life. Reports of the processor in the Series 7 watch have not come up, but based on the S6 system in package in the current Apple Watch Series 6, we can expect to find an S7 in the next watch.

Apple announced watchOS 8 at WWDC, which has several new features, including digital keys, a new Mindfulness app, and a Portraits face. All of these features will be available on the Apple Watch Series 7 as well as any new features that are specific to the new device.

 Another out-there rumour predicts that Apple is working on a new version of its wearable to be called the Apple Watch Sport.In itself that isn't too hard to believe - there was a Sport version of the original model, which just referred to it coming with a sporty strap - but we're also hearing that this will be a completely new design focusing on shock resistance and all-round robustness. It would be covered with rubber-like material and be somewhat reminiscent of Casio's G-Shock Watches

 

Based on past launch dates, the most likely date for the event that will see the unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 7 and the ‌iPhone 13‌ models in the mid September but the week after that is also a possibility. Either way, we don't have much longer to wait before Apple reveals the first of its fall device launch lineup.
