Apple is apparently working on a redesign of the Apple Watch this year, according to a Bloomberg report by Mark Gurman and Debby Wu.

The Apple Watch Series 7 will feature a faster processor, thinner bezels and for the first time, an ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity for Find My support.

The 2021 Apple Watch will be faster than its previous models, with the display moved closer to the screen. The watch’s bezels will be made even smaller this time around.

“The Cupertino, California-based tech giant is planning to refresh the line this year — with a model likely dubbed the Apple Watch Series 7 — by adding a faster processor, improved wireless connectivity and an updated screen, according to people with knowledge of the plans.

The device would most likely be thicker than the Apple Watch Series 6, but the report says users should not expect the difference to be so huge that it’s really noticeable while being worn.

As for the ultra-wideband, it will include the same chip used on the AirTag to allow support for the Find My app and watchOS 8 features such as the ability to unlock doors.

The model will include updated ultra-wideband functionality, the same underlying technology in the Apple AirTag item finder. At its developer conference in early June, Apple previewed the upcoming watchOS 8 software update that will let the device unlock door and hotel rooms.”

The tech company supposedly wanted to place a temperature sensor in the 2021 Watch, but now it’s not going to be a possibility until next year.

The Bloomberg report has not specified exactly when the Apple Watch Series 7 will be launched, but it is believed to be scheduled towards the end of this year or sometime in 2022.
