As of yesterday, it appears that the Apple Watch is not the dominant force in the realm of smartwatches with Google and Samsung joining the military with a little help from Fitbit.
However, the next Apple Watch Series 7 may be ready to face the Wear OS / Tizen / Fitbit OS challenge with an attractive new design for the next generation iPhone companion.
A report by John Prosser of Front Page Tech shows renders of an alleged Apple Watch with a flat-edge display that somewhat matches (via) the iPhone 12 and iPad Pro MacRumors) The current display has slightly curved edges that show it rising above the body of the watch.
Apple last gave the watch a major boost with the Series 4, which significantly diluted the bezel, while the Apple Watch Series 5 always added on-display.
Prosser also claims that there will be a new green color for the Apple Watch, which appears to match the recently announced teal green iMac M1 Apple. The company has also added some new base colors for the Apple Watch Series 6 in 2020.
As usual, Prosser says he has received real-life images of the next generation Apple Watch prototype, which he has handed over to a designer to create a fake render. As a disclaimer he says that viewers on his YouTube channel can make up their minds, but he is building a very impressive track record of getting right on the money with these predictions.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is also rumored to carry improved health-tracking capabilities that may include a blood glucose monitor, which could be a major boost for people suffering from diabetes. A company called Rockley Photonics, a British company that manufactures blood glucose sensors, revealed that it counts Apple as its biggest customer.
Rockley also makes a blood alcohol monitor and a blood pressure monitor, so there are several directions that Apple can take with it.
Prosser was not able to verify any possible specs for the Series 6, but it seems that Apple may once again enhance the wearable’s health skills in 2021. Is this the best smartwatch yet to face a major challenge? .
