Rumor: Apple Watch is gearing up for a futuristic redesign of the Series 7 as the company seeks to better align aesthetics with its existing iPhone and iPad lines. The Apple Watch may not be the most impressive one yet, but the larger screen and extended battery life should provide a good upgrade path for people stuck with Series 3 or older models.
September is a busy month for Apple, and a lot of device announcements are expected on a much tighter schedule than usual. One of these is the Apple Watch Series 7, which is said to have an updated display, faster integrated, and much improved wireless connectivity. The look of the body temperature sensor and blood glucose sensor has been delayed for newer versions of the Apple Watch. Instead, the biggest design changes this year have been the updated and larger screen.
According to Mark Gorman of Bloomberg, the Apple Watch will feature a flatter design this year with squared bezels and thinner bezels. In addition to more color options, Gorman confirms what a number of whistleblowers said this month about the redesign. Apparently, the Apple Watch 7 Series comes in 41mm and 45mm sizes, which includes a new set of watch faces, including the Infograph Modular Face.
When Apple last introduced the Apple Watch 4, most of the new faces it introduced didn't make it to the old watches, and that might be the case this time around. Either way, the new Apple Watch redesign matches the new beauty of the iPhone and iPad, both of which have a flat design similar to the old iPhone 5. More importantly, the larger frame accommodates a slightly larger battery, which is expected to extend battery life with the more efficient S7 chipset. Based on previous launch dates, we'll likely see an official disclosure on September 14th or the following week.
