New Apple Watch models make their debut every fall like clockwork, and the countdown to Apple Watch Series 7 is on. In this round-up, we follow everything we know so far about the next-gen Apple Watch. If you’re like me, Apple Watch Series 7 can’t come soon enough!
Apple’s Fall 2020 Apple Watch lineup includes three models: Apple Watch Series 3 ($ 199), Apple Watch SE ($ 279), and Apple Watch Series 6 ($ 399).
The Series 3’s lack of support for Home Setup and other features makes it less compelling than the Apple Watch SE, but the $ 80 price difference is hard to overcome for smart buyers on a budget. . It seems entirely possible that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be dropped in the next lineup while the Apple Watch SE cuts its prices and sticks around.
There is, however, some evidence that Series 3 could be untouchable in programming. watchOS 8, the next software update for Apple Watch, maintains support for the model launched in 2017. If the Series 3 remains a product in the Apple lineup until 2022, hopefully the price of $ 199 will be even more. low so that the starting price is the lowest to date.
It’s speculation right now, but Apple Watch Series 7 replacing Series 6 this fall is almost certain. (Series 5 replaced Series 4 and Series 6 replaced Series 5.) This is where the most interesting changes are happening.
Will the Apple Watch Series 7 be any different? At this stage, we are banking on it. The Apple Watch Series 6 introduced new colors of red and blue aluminum and a graphite variant of the classic space black stainless steel case. Apple Watch Series 7 could launch the first design tweak since switching to a full-screen design with Apple Watch Series 4.
In September 2020, supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared the ultimate teaser by predicting that a new Apple Watch design could be ready as early as Series 7. Kuo warned that Series 6 will retain the design of the Series 4 while adding that a “significant form factor design change would come with the new Apple Watch models no earlier than 2:21.
Jon Prosser, a prominent scoopster in the Apple community, has popped up renders that describe what he thinks is the new look of Apple Watch this fall. Flat sides and a new green color? We do not raise an eyebrow at this assertion.
Bloomberg separately reported that the Apple Watch Series 7 will feature thinner edges around the screen and a new layering technique that narrows the gap between the screen and the glass. Consider us excited.
If you’re looking for a deep cut this year, however, don’t hold your breath. This report adds that a slight increase in thickness is expected.
Apple Watch largely contributes to its success with a healthy suite of sensors that monitor a person’s overall well-being. For this reason, it makes sense to continue to accelerate what’s possible for health with the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Series 4 introduced ECG, Apple Watch Series 5 brought always-on display, including for the Workout app, and Apple Watch Series 6 pioneered blood oxygen level measurements .
There are rumors that the Apple Watch Series 7 could be a breakthrough in blood sugar detection. AND News outside Korea reported in January 2021 that Samsung and Apple were working this year to bring blood sugar measurements to their watches:
Samsung Electronics will be equipped with a blood glucose measurement function in the new ‘Galaxy Watch 4’ (working name) smartwatch to be launched in the second half of this year. This is a non-blood collection method that detects the level of glucose in the blood without blood collection using an optical sensor, and is expected to help manage the health of the general public as well as diabetics. […]
Not only Samsung Electronics, but also Apple are applying the blood sugar measuring function to the Apple Watch 7 which will be launched this year. With the related patent technology secured, it focuses on ensuring reliability and stability before making the technology available.
Newer and more in-depth reports from Bloomberg included that the blood sugar measurement is probably years away at this point. The same report states that if Apple is working on temperature monitoring with Apple Watch, this feature is likely scheduled for next year’s model. However, we should expect the Series 7 hardware to include “updated ultra-wideband functionality”.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has long been said to be curious about blood sugar monitoring through Apple Watch. In May 2017, it was reported that Cook was spotted on Apple’s campus testing a portable blood glucose tracker that worked with the Apple Watch.
Later that year, the New York Times reported that Apple was looking for continuous non-invasive glucose meters with technology that could take years. Is three to four years the time Apple needs? It doesn’t look like it yet.
In the meantime, enjoy this concept from Parker Ortolani of 9to5Mac that imagines what a potential blood sugar app might look like.
