The Apple Watch Series 7 is coming! Are you excited? The new features will be sure to amaze the masses and if the rumours are to be believed then we really could be in for a treat! After a successful launch of the Apple Watch Series 6 and SE in late 2020, smartwatch fans are eager to see what’s next for their beloved wrist device. With just months before the new model appears on shelves, we’re starting to get an idea of what is coming our way with the release of series 7 later this year. In this article, we’re looking at the rumours, when it’s likely to arrive on shelves and what could be changing.
When Will The Apple Watch Series 7 Come Out?
According to sources from Tech Crunch – Apple has confirmed that the new watch will not make an appearance at their annual event in September of this year. So for now, we’re waiting on the tech giants. Now this might change given the previous release dates but for now it’s all we have to go on.
Let’s take a look at when the previous models were launched:
Apple Watch Series 3: 22 September 2017
Apple Watch Series 4: 21 September 2018
Apple Watch Series 5: 20 September 2019
Apple Watch Series 6: 18 September 2020
Despite what the sources are saying, we have a sneaky suspicion going on what’s happened historically that actually the Series 7 is likely to come around September sometime, although it could be pushed to early October.
iPhone and Apple Watch models are almost always released in tandem so if you’re waiting to get your hands on a new Apple Watch, keep your eye out for news on release dates for the new iPhone 13.
Price: How much will the Apple Watch Series 7 cost?
With Apple soon to announce the release, price is a hot topic amongst super-fans. Rumours are stirring that we shouldn’t expect the new model to cost as much as its previous models. Traditionally an entry-level model with GPS will set you back around £399, however, that might not be true this time. Watch this space.
Looking at historic pricing, previous models have been priced around the £400 mark so history would dictate this is how much we should be budgeting. On release, the Series 6 was £379 / $399, the Series 5 was priced at £399 / $399 and the Series 4 was the same.
Apple Watch Series 7 Rumours
The Apple Watch Series 6 didn’t bring radical change. More of an iteration which could suggest that the Series 7 will bring with it a significant change. Maybe the Series 7 will follow the newer iPhone ranges and go with a more squared bezel, but we just don’t know yet.
Blood Glucose Monitoring
We’ve seen Apple push more and more into the fitness market and are interested in where they turn next. According to a report featured in ETNews, blood glucose monitoring could be a standout feature of the Apple Watch Series 7 which could be an incredible feature and innovation from Apple’s team. If the studies are correct then the evolution could significantly increase the appeal for people with diabetes who would be able to monitor their blood sugar levels through the skin as early as next September. The report from this month makes mention of “continuing” research in this field, so it sounds like they’re still adding features and making improvements.
Apple Watch Series 7 Rumours – The Wild, Wacky and Straight Up Out There Rumours
The new Apple Watch Series 7 has been a huge topic of discussion in our office for the last few weeks, and as soon as it was announced, rumours about this watch started to surface. Here are some of the wild and wacky ones that we’ve seen:
According to a patent filed by Apple – they’re working on a flexible screen – one application could be a whole interactive band. Think Macbook Touchbar but around your whole wrist – quite futuristic but we’re a fan, we think this one might be a little way off though.
If you’re hotly anticipating and saving your hard-earned money for an Apple Watch with a round face, you might not be alone but we think you could be waiting some time.
Apple Watch Series 7 Improvements: What We’d Like To See
Apple has been making significant improvements to the Apple Watch with every new release. The most recent update was the Series 6, but many of us are still waiting for a few key features. We’ve compiled a list of some of the improvements we would like to see in future and hope you’ll get behind them too!
Better Third-Party Apps
One thing we feel has always been lacking is the apps available on the Apple Watch. Whilst the native Apple Apps are great and functional, we’d love to see some more third-party partnerships to bring even more use to the world of smart, wearable tech.
Imagine a battery that lasts 24 hours! We want to be able to track our sleep and our steps during the day but this can be difficult, we don’t want to have to choose one or the other. We understand that maybe we’re asking too much and are aware that at some point the battery will need charging we just want more.
Apple Watch Series 7 A Quick Round-Up
The Series 7 is on the way and we can’t wait. Here are the absolute headlines!
Release Date – likely to be the end of September
Price – based on historic pricing expect to pay around £400
Rumours – Blood glucose is a likely addition, a round face and flexible screens are likely a bit far off.
