Apple recently announced the Watch Series 7, and while it doesn’t have a major redesign, it does have a 20% larger screen than the Series 6. For the past few years, Apple has been adamant about offering its wearables in two sizes, and those size options have only slowly increased. That could change with the rumored Apple Watch Series 8, which could launch in three sizes.

performance analyst Ross Young wrote People on Twitter shouldn’t be surprised “if there are sizes three next year.” While he didn’t give details about what those three sizes could be, he did ask his followers if they’d like to see a “larger display,” so we can speculate that once again Apple may increase the screen size. Is. For reference, the biggest Apple Watch right now is the 45mm Series 7.

Don’t be surprised if there are 3 sizes next year…

In the past, Apple Watches have been available in 38mm, 40mm, 42mm and 44mm sizes. The increase in screen size was mostly introduced by reducing the bezels rather than increasing the overall size of the body and case. According to past rumorsOf course, the Apple Watch Series 8 may come with the option of a “rugged casing”, which could also be the third variant. It’s aimed at athletes, hikers, and people who use the watch in more extreme conditions, potentially stealing some of the thunder from brands like Garmin.

As for the Apple Watch Series 7, we’re still testing it. While it’s not a huge jump compared to the Series 6, it does offer a 2.5D curve around the screen, which is positioned on the side of the body. You get a 1.7mm bezel which is 40% thinner than before. These changes help the Watch Series 7 display 50% more text on the screen. Plus, it’s big enough to feature a full keyboard with tap or swipe typing. Stay tuned for our full review.
