Apple is said to be redesigning the Apple Watch this year, according to a report from Bloomberg. The ‘Apple Watch Series 7’ will feature thinner display bezels, a faster processor and include a U1 Ultra Wideband chip like the U1 chip found in recent iPhone models.
Apple was reportedly aiming to include a body temperature sensor as well, but that feature may have been delayed until the 2022 watch.
Bloomberg says this year’s Watch update will include thinner borders around the screen> Apple will also be using a new lamination technique that reduces the gap between the display and the cover glass.
The previously-rumored rugged Apple Watch is on the cards for next year. An update to the entry-level Apple Watch SE is also expected next year.
Bloomberg says Apple is continuing to research ways to measure blood glucose levels in a non-invasive manner. However, that project is still several years away from being ready to ship in a future Apple Watch.
In May, Jon Prosser said the new 2021 Watch will feature flatter sides like the iPhone 12 (renders pictured above).
