Apple Watch Series 7: Things to Know About Release Date, Price, Features, and Rumors
September has always been an important month for Apple. Even last year when the pandemic limited offline shows and delayed the unveiling of the new iPhone, Apple did manage to release Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE, and new iPad models. This year on September 14, Apple is holding their third event of the year. The much-awaited online event is already garnering attention from all quarters. After all, the world expects Apple to release its next iPhone, AirPods 3, and the new Apple Watch 7 at this event.
While iPhone 13 is likely to turn most heads, the Apple Watch Series 7 has no less of a fan following. In this article, we’ve rounded up the rumors and stories about the Apple Watch Series 7 design, release date, pricing, latest features, and more, for you.
About Apple Watch Series 7: Including New Health Feature
The new Apple Watch is set to inherit all the health features from its previous generation devices and may see some new features as well. While the addition of features such as blood glucose monitor and blood pressure monitor could be a bit too optimistic, Apple may provide updates to its sleep tracking feature.
The Sleep App on the Apple Watch captures only rudimentary nighttime data and has the scope of measuring overall sleep data, time spent in light, deep, and REM sleep, heart-rate variability, and resting heart rate as well.
Some top leakers have confirmed that Apple is rigorously working on developing mental health tools that can warn users about an incoming panic attack or heightened stress levels, but the chances of it coming to fruition this year look bleak. However, a lot of users will find this addition useful if the tech giant manages to include it.
Design and Hardware, Colors, Battery Life
The Apple Watch Series 7 new design is rumored to have the same flat-edge design as the latest iPhone and iPad that Apple released last year. Flatter edges would also mean thinner bezels which would increase the display area ever so slightly. Another rumor doing the rounds is that the new watch will have a case size of 41/45 mm, jumping up from the 40/44 mm form factor. The last time Apple increased its overall size was for Series 4; a substantial upgrade.
If the release of a purple iPhone and the 24 inch iMacs is any sign, it’s that the new Apple Watch could also come in a variety of different colors. While the addition of colors would be accepted with open arms, Apple has done a great job in keeping things under wraps as much as they could.
Battery life has been a true nemesis of Apple Watches in the past. People with an active lifestyle weren’t impressed with the 18-24 hour battery life of the watch and are eagerly waiting for a major improvement in this generation’s battery life.
iWatch Series 7 Display
With a bump in overall size, the screen size of the newer Apple Watch is set to be increased as well. Rumors indicate that a 45 mm case size should reflect a bigger 1.9 inches screen, housing a different display than its predecessors.
The screen resolution would be 396 x 484 pixels for crisp viewing, with reports suggesting that Apple is working on a new lamination technique that will bring the display closer to the front cover. The thinner borders will also make the display look a bit bigger.
Apple Watch Series 7 Price
The previous three Apple Watch models were launched with a price tag of $399 for the base models. Even with an increase in the screen size and flatter edges, there aren’t any major hardware upgrades or feature additions that point towards an increase in the pricing. The Apple Watch Series 7 price in India is also expected to remain the same as the last generations.
New Health Feature of Apple Watch Series 7
Apart from a muted upgrade in the existing health features, there don’t seem to be any major health additions in the new Apple Watch Series 7 features. Reports are generally mixed about the addition of new blood glucose and blood pressure monitor hinting them to be a target for future Watch releases.
However, the new watch series 7 could introduce a new swim-tracking feature with high-end tracking features and stroke detection; but nothing is confirmed as of yet. There are rumors of new additions to the Fitness+ app but it might not be limited to the new watches only.
Apple Watch Series 7 Release Date
Apple is known for releasing its watches every September and this series doesn’t look like an exception. The Apple Watch Series 7 release date in India and worldwide is set to be shortly after their unveiling on 14 September 2021, with experts touting it to be available in the global market by around 24 September 2021.
The event will go live on Tuesday, September 14 at 10 am Pacific Daylight Time and is expected to last longer than an hour. The live streaming can be viewed worldwide at the Apple Website, Apple’s YouTube channel or Apple TV app.
Every Apple product release peaks the interests of enthusiasts, consumers, experts, and competitors around the world. The 14 September fall event of Apple is going to be a big one with the release of a new iPhone as well as the next AirPods, along with the aforementioned Apple Watch Series 7. Events like this fuel rumors, leaks, potential renders, and spec sheets but nothing is confirmed until the actual product is released. Users can get a slight preview of the product in the spotlight but shouldn’t believe every small talk or murmur online or otherwise.
