It is likely we’ll be seeing a new Apple Watch before the end of the year and the rumours are already swirling about a possible new design, new display sizes and a range of new features.
We’re expecting Apple to hold an event in September to unveil the iPhone 13 and this could very be when we see the latest Apple Watch Series 7.
Because these events are probably going to still be virtual, there’s also a likelihood Apple could hold a separate event just for Apple Watch in October or November.
The biggest rumour about the Apple Watch is the new design which is likely to reflect the new design and shape of the iPhone 12 with flat edges and a boxier look.
The Apple Watch’s design has largely stayed the same since it went on sale for the first time in 2015.
We have seen screen size and screen types updated over the years but it has looked the same for more than six years.
This new look was rendered by Apple rumour sites and well known Apple leaker Jon Prosser.
And word is that not only will the Apple Watch Series 7 have a new look but it will also have new colours including green and blue along with the current silver and black.
Apple Watch was launched in 2015 in 38mm and 42mm screen sizes before upgrading to 40mm and 44mm in Series 4 which also saw the image on the display go all the way to the edge.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will reportedly go up to 41mm and 45mm sizes because the new case design could accommodate a larger display without increasing the actual size of the watch.
On the feature side, the Apple Watch already is a well-credentialled health and wellness device and had the ECG feature officially approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.
The whisper is the Apple Watch Series 7 will have blood pressure tracking – similar to the upcoming feature announced by Samsung for its Galaxy Watch Series 4.
This feature won’t be able to take your blood pressure but it can track your blood pressure once you’ve had a proper cuff blood pressure reading.
