Bloomberg reports that Apple is working on several new watch faces to take advantage of the larger screens of its upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 models.
Apple Watch Series 7 models will be available in 41mm and 45mm sizes, instead of the 40mm and 44mm sizes. The screen for the 45mm model will measure in at 1.9 inches diagonally. This is an increase of 1.78 inches. It will also have a resolution 396x484, which is 16 percent more than the current 368x448.
Bloomberg did not provide similar information for the 41mm model. However, it will also see an identical increase in body size and will have slimmer display borders.
Apple Watch 45mm will offer more room for complications. Apple also has several new watch faces in development to complement the Series 7 models.
Modular Max watches will display the digital time and a small complication such as temperature. Below, additional larger complications will be added. Similar to Infograph Modular but able to show multiple large complications.
The Continuum's face will change based on the "flow of time and current hour." A new world watch face will let users see all 24 time zones simultaneously. An outer dial will show the time zones while the inner dial will show the time in each place. Bloomberg claims it is similar to the watch faces used by luxury watchmakers Patek Philippe and Breitling.
A new Hermes watch face features numbers that move hourly, while a Nike watch face changes numbers based on movement.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will also have a new S7 chip, and a flat-edged design to match the iPhone 13. However, we don't expect any new health features.
Apple will likely unveil the new Apple Watch during an event in September. However, recent rumors about production problems could cause the launch to be delayed or limit supply.
Bloomberg reports that Apple will unveil a new low-end Apple Watch SE next year. This rugged model is aimed at extreme athletes alongside its flagship update.
