The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be released in about a month, and reports continue to suggest that Apple is planning a redesign this year.
The CAD renderings depict a flat-edged style similar to Apple’s new iPad Pro, iMac, and iPhone 12. The Side Button and Digital Crown buttons are still in the same location, however the speakers on the left have grown substantially in size.
The button placement doesn’t seem to have changed as we have the Digital Crown for navigation, a microphone, and a flat selection button on the right side of the frame. The left side sees two rather large slits for speakers.
Furthermore, the source tells us the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available in a 44mm model and it would measure 44x38x9mm and sport a 1.8-inch display. In comparison, Series 6 44mm measured 44X38X10.7mm and weighed 36 grams.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will have smaller display bezels, a speedier CPU, and “new ultra-wideband capabilities,” according to Bloomberg. This would be the Apple Watch’s first major redesign since the Series 4, which was introduced in 2018. The Apple Watch Series 7 will likewise have a flat-edged design, according to Jon Prosser.
Apple was also said to be planning to incorporate a body temperature sensor, although it might be postponed until the 2022 watch.
The Apple Watch Series 7 model numbers A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, and A2478 surfaced in regulatory filings earlier this month, ahead of its planned September debut.
