Apple Watch Series 7 will have a larger display with new watch faces

Apple Watch Series 7 will ship with larger display sizes and new watch faces that take advantage of the additional screen real estate. This will be the second change to Apple Watch display sizes ever since the first one launched in 2015. Apple Watch Series 4 was the previous model which introduced the currently used display sizes: 40mm and 44mm.

Apple Watch Series 7 to ship in 41mm and 45mm sizes

This new information is from Mark Gurman’s latest Power On newsletter. After three generations, Apple is finally upgrading the screen size of Apple Watch this year by bumping it up by just a millimeter to 41mm and 45mm sizes.

This year’s watches will come in 41-millimeter and 45-millimeter sizes, up from 40 and 44 millimeters. I’m told that Apple will bundle multiple new watch faces to take advantage of the bigger screen, including an updated Infograph Modular face. This will be the second time in the Apple Watch’s history that the company has increased the display size, following the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2017.

Those who are expecting new health-focused features would also have to wait until 2022 at least when Apple might include a body temperature sensor in Apple Watch Series 8. The last health upgrade was in Apple Watch Series 6 which supports blood-oxygen readings.

Apple Watch Series 7 is set for a screen size boost. New Apple Watches are nearing, and this year’s highlight feature is an updated design, as I reported a few months ago. While last year’s upgrade centered on the blood-oxygen sensor, this year’s is all about a new design with a flatter display and edges, a faster processor and slightly larger screens. I don’t expect any major health upgrades until at least next year, when we may see a body-temperature sensor.

This news regarding larger Watch displays had previously been leaked by a user on Chinese social network Weibo, called UnclePan. Gurman had also written in a previous Power On newsletter that Series 7 will have flatter displays and updated screen technology, alongside a faster processor.

Apple will likely announce the new Watch during an event next month, alongside the new iPhone 13.
