When the first-gen Apple Watch was out, Apple put a special emphasize on the endurance. At that time, the Cupertino-based company was promoting its first smartwatch to have a battery life of up to 18 hours. Interestingly, this specification has not been changed until today. We mean even the Apple Watch Series 6 provides a battery life of 18 hours. But this may improve in the nearest future. Well, let’s not focus on time, but we have to say the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 will provide a longer battery life. At least, Apple is doing its best for this goal.
According to some insider reports, Apple won’t add many new sensors for more functionality. Instead, it is working on making the battery life longer. However, prior to this, Bloomberg was proving that the future Apple Watch will come with a body temperature sensor. When this information came out, we were thinking this feature will be present on the Apple Watch Series 7. But now, we think Apple won’t add anything new to have space for a larger battery.

Also, under the hood, we will find the Apple S7 chip. It will switch to a more compact dual-sided system in a package (SiP) design. As you guess, it will free more space for the battery. But you should also be informed that the new watch won’t differ from the current model in terms of dimensions.
What We Know About Apple Watch Series 7
Recently, we have got a couple of renders showing how the design of the watch may change. Plus, we saw a new green color. The sides are going to become flat. We guess this is a new Apple design direction that is already used in the iPhone and iPad. The renders also show thinner bezels around the screens. Plus, we guess Apple will use a better lamination to reduce the gap between the display and the protective glass.
The forthcoming Apple Watch Series 7 ought to improve the UWB support. Even if the much-rumored blood sugar and alcohol sensors are not there, we will see them in the coming models. Maybe these monitoring features are already ready to appear on the 7th-gen model. But more sensors mean shorter battery life. So if Apple is focusing on improving the 18-hour battery life of its smartwatch, it’s not reasonable to add many new sensors at the moment.
