The Apple Watch Series 7 release date appears to be nearing as no less than six new model references have appeared in filings for the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). While it’s expected the Apple Watch Series 7 will get a new design and an updated processor, the inclusion of a blood-sugar sensor in an Apple Watch is still likely years away.

It is rumored that the Apple Watch Series 7 could be released in September and a new appearance via Russia’s EEC agency has lent weight to that expectation. Six new models have been referenced in the filings, as spotted by the French-language site Consomac, with the upcoming wearables likely differing in case size and connectivity options. The Apple Watch Series 7 model numbers that appear are A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, and A2478.

Leaks concerning the design of the Apple Watch Series 7 have shown it in a range of colors, including green, and it is also expected that the next-generation smartwatch will have slimmer bezels and a thicker case. Unsurprisingly, a faster SoC should be involved, with the potentially named Apple S7 chip outpacing the older Apple S6 (for reference, the S6 was up to 20% quicker than the S5). As for features, fans should look forward to typical smartwatch health utilities such as blood oxygen measurement and 24/7 heart-rate tracking.

However, while it has been previously rumored that such things as a non-invasive blood glucose monitor and even an alcohol level sensor could have found their way on board an Apple Watch Series 7, it seems more likely that these useful functions are some years away yet. A report from Bloomberg specifically stated that a blood-sugar sensor, which would be of particular interest to wearers with diabetes, would not be ready “for several more years”. The Apple Watch Series 6 was released in September 2020 and was priced from US$399.
