Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has shared new details on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7, citing people familiar with the matter. The seventh-generation display should have smaller bezels, but also be a bit thicker, although that shouldn’t really be noticeable. Gurman does not name an angular design – Jon Prosser, for example, reported that.
At the same time, the Apple Watch Series 7 will get a U1 ultra-broadband chip, as we already know from the iPhone or the AirTag finger. Apple is also testing biometric health sensors, but this technology could only be used in the next but one generation. The blood sugar sensor, which would help diabetics monitor blood sugar levels, is not expected to be ready for the market for a few years.
Gurman believes that some features of watchOS 8 will be reserved for the new Apple Watch 7. One example is the unlocking of hotel rooms, office buildings and more. The U1 chip could play an important role here.
New Apple Watch SE for 2022
In 2022, not only will the Apple Watch 8 appear, but also a new Apple Watch SE, according to Bloomberg. Internally, the watch is called the “Explorer” or “Adventure” edition and could be aimed at sports enthusiasts. It remains to be seen which functions the Apple Watch, which is actually intended for beginners, will get.
