The Apple Watch Series 7 could be in line for a redesign according to tipster Jon Prosser. The changes would make the Watch look squared off at the edges and replace the currently rounded off look bringing it in line with the squared off look that started with the iPad Pro design and most recently made its way to the iPhone 12.

The Apple Watch design has remained fundamentally unchanged since it was introduced in 2015. It’s unisex appeal has been so great that it hasn’t really demanded a design change although Apple did give it a tweak in 2018 when the Watch Series 4 debuted with larger displays, thinner bezels and rounded corners. Based on tipster Jon Prosser’s latest claims, this could be set to change with the launch of the Apple Watch Series 7 later this year.

According to Prosser’s sources, Apple could bring the squared off design language that it introduced with the iPad Pro line redesign in 2018. Apple has since taken this look to the fourth-generation iPad Air and the iPhone 12 line. The new iMac also adopts a similar approach to its corners which certainly makes the rumor plausible, particularly given that it will have been six years since Apple introduced the overall design theme it has adhered to until now.

The Apple Watch is by far the most popular smartwatch on the market offering a regularly updated custom S-series SoC and a sophisticated operating system derived from iOS. In addition to the likely redesign, the Watch Series 7 is also tipped to gain non-invasive blood glucose monitoring and potentially even an alcohol level sensor. Again, none of these rumors would surprise given Apple’s focus on making the Apple Watch the ultimate health assessment device.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
