Apple Watch Series 7 was recently introduced at the September 14 event but the unveiling did not come with a precise launch date, rather a generic ‘later this Fall’ availability status. Furthermore, the tech has not even released the new smartwatch’s specs details on its website and the only information on its internal components and SoC are details shared in the event.
However, an internal document discovered by YouTuber Ali Reza reveals the weight, connectivity, water resistance, and other details of the Apple Watch Series 7. In addition, it also confirms developer Steve Troughton-Smith’s claim that Apple Watch Series 7 uses the same SoC (CPU and GPU) Apple Watch Series 6.
Apple Watch Series 7 – unreleased details
The document shared by @Ali Reza, lists the details of the new Apple Watch Series 7 and Apple Watch Nike Series 7 in comparison to their predecessor models, Apple Watch Series 6, and Apple Watch Nike Series 6, respectively.
The smartwatch series is slightly heavier than the older models, has a larger and brighter display, and comes with the most crack-resistant front glass with IP6X dust resistance. Everything else is almost the same as Apple Watch Series 6.
- A 64-bit dual-core processor
- Health sensors
- Blood oxygen
- Electrical heart
- Optical heart
- Accelerometer and gyroscope (fall detection)
- Always-on altimeter
- Ambient light
- Battery and charging
- All-day battery life with up to 18 hours
- Up to 100% charge in 1.5 hours
- U1 Ultra Wideband chip
- Bluetooth 5.0

Having said that, the document mentions that it is for internal use only and the mentioned specs are not for customers. There is a likely possibility that the tech giant has not finalized the components of the new smartwatch series and unveiled it in a rush.
Ahead of the launch, it was speculated that Apple might not announce the new Apple Watch Series because of delays in production. The smartwatch’s new design and components were difficult for assemblers to put together and achieve satisfactory performance.
