Apple is planning a new flat-edged design and at least one new color for Apple Watch Series 7, according to Jon Prosser on the latest Genius Bar podcast.
Last November, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo indicated that Apple Watch would get a form factor redesign for release in late 2021.
For the first time on Apple Watch, it may also feature a new green colorway similar to the shade found on AirPods Max or iPad Air
Sounds like Apple Watch Series 7 will be the most significant upgrade since the Series 4 back in 2018. I’ve seen the new design, and I really like it. Falls right in line with Apple’s recent product redesigns like iPad Pro, iPhone 12 and even the new M1 iMac.
MacDailyNews Take: As long as it doesn’t dig into the arm and is at least as comfortable as the very comfortable current Apple Watch Series 6 and earlier, bring it on! A major design change could spur a record number of Apple Watch sales in the upcoming cycle. Plus, a flat-edged design would bring Apple Watch into the current Apple design language seen with the iPad Pro and the new 24-inch iMac (and, presumably, the larger iMac to come).
