Apple Watch Series 7 – NOT What You Think!

apple watch series 7
00:06
leak
00:06
which basically showed a massive
00:08
redesign with flat patches
00:10
and two gigantic speaker grills but
00:13
today i want to go over some
00:15
fresh new leaks coming from mark german
00:17
this time
00:18
that do not actually focus on the new
00:19
design but rather on the actual features
00:22
that we expect to see with this year’s
00:24
apple watch so get our popcorn ready and
00:28
enjoy
00:32
okay now the reason why i think mark
00:35
german’s upload series 7 report is such
00:37
a big deal
00:38
is because if you take a look on apple
00:40
track mark german is currently
00:42
the fourth most accurate leaker with an
00:45
accuracy of
00:46
89.1 percent but what you probably don’t
00:49
know is that
00:50
mark has by far the highest number of
00:53
leaks
00:54
402 compared to 191
00:57
that 95 mac has who are in the second
01:00
place
01:01
which makes mark german the world’s most
01:03
accurate
01:04
apple leaker if we go by the number of
01:06
leaks that he actually got correct
01:08
now mark is known to be quite
01:09
conservative when it comes to the
01:11
changes that he usually expects a
01:12
product to have so
01:14
he will only report on the ones that
01:16
he’s absolutely certain of
01:18
which if we go by his previous track
01:20
record he’s
01:21
uh usually right on top of this mark
01:24
german has written this report
01:26
with his bloomberg colleague debbie woo
01:29
she has also appeared on a number of
01:30
successful apple insider reports
01:32
alongside mark okay so the first new
01:35
change that mark expects us to see with
01:37
the series 7
01:38
is a faster processor and yes i know
01:42
this one is a no-brainer as every single
01:44
new apple watch has had
01:46
a new chip inside and all of these chips
01:49
aside from the s5 inside the series 5
01:51
offered a performance improvement over
01:54
the previous model
01:55
now here’s the thing i’m currently using
01:57
an apple watch series 5. i’ve had this
01:58
thing for
01:59
almost two years now and i’ve never
02:01
really felt that it was slow
02:03
even today it runs very smoothly and it
02:06
feels
02:07
blazing fast but i do actually have one
02:09
major complaint with it
02:11
which is the battery life i mentioned
02:13
this in previous videos
02:14
the fact that my series 5 just cannot
02:17
last me a full day especially if i do a
02:18
workout in that day
02:20
by 8 or 9 p.m or even before that it is
02:23
already dead
02:24
and because of that i just avoid using
02:27
it for
02:27
sleep tracking so what i really want to
02:29
see with the apple watch s7 chip
02:31
is not faster performance but rather
02:34
more efficiency that can give me those
02:36
two days usage that i had with the
02:38
series 4
02:39
as well as the ability to use sleep
02:41
tracking without having to
02:42
charge my watch beforehand you see the
02:44
problem with the sleep tracking at the
02:46
moment
02:47
is that at least in my case i have to
02:49
charge it before bed
02:51
uh and even if i charge it to 100 in the
02:53
morning i will have
02:54
70 which means that in that case if i
02:57
start a day with 70 percent it’s gonna
02:59
die
03:00
by like 6 p.m or 5 p.m especially if i
03:02
do a workout so
03:04
it’s just not great and not usable at
03:06
least for me mark german also mentioned
03:08
that a series 7
03:09
is getting improved wireless
03:11
connectivity now
03:13
this is an interesting one as it can
03:14
mean faster wi-fi
03:17
and faster seller as well currently the
03:20
apple watch series 6 supports 802.11b
03:23
gn on 2.4 and 5 gigahertz bands however
03:27
it does not support 802.11 ac or
03:30
the new wi-fi 6 standard i’m pretty sure
03:33
that
03:34
there are no wi-fi 6 modems that are
03:36
small enough to fit into a smart watch
03:39
so
03:39
my guess here is that 802.11 ac
03:42
will be added instead even though
03:45
personally
03:46
i never really had any wi-fi speed
03:49
issues with
03:50
my apple watch i always find it to be
03:51
quite fast for what i’m doing which are
03:53
notifications and music streaming
03:55
um so yeah for me at least it’s been
03:57
great but like i said we could also see
03:59
improved
04:00
cellular speeds so at the moment we have
04:02
lte so in theory
04:04
we could see 5g but once again
04:07
i’m not aware of any 5g modems and
04:10
antennas
04:11
that could actually fit in a smartwatch
04:13
so my guess from what mark german has
04:15
said
04:16
is that we would be getting 802.11 ac
04:19
at best and then mark also mentioned
04:22
that the series 7 will be getting the
04:24
ultra wide band chip the one chip
04:27
so maybe this is what he meant when he
04:30
said that we’re getting some
04:31
connectivity improvements maybe it was
04:33
the u1 chip in the first place
04:34
i was actually quite surprised when the
04:36
series 6 did not
04:37
get it as iphones have had it since the
04:40
iphone 11
04:41
in 2019 however i think that this might
04:44
have had something to do
04:46
with the limited space inside the apple
04:48
watch again but now that we got the air
04:50
tags
04:50
which do actually feature the ultra wide
04:53
band chip inside
04:54
and keep in mind the ear tags are really
04:56
tiny so d1 chip is also very tiny inside
04:58
of them
04:59
it does also make a lot of sense for
05:00
apple to be using that exact same chip
05:02
inside the apple watch series 7 as well
05:05
this will allow us to find an air tag
05:07
using the apple watch which at the
05:08
moment it cannot do
05:11
at all not even using bluetooth okay now
05:14
most of you watching this video probably
05:15
have at least
05:16
one apple product so if you’re looking
05:18
for some truly premium apple accessories
05:20
check out bandwick our sponsor for this
05:23
video vanvic originally started
05:25
with high-end apple watch bands had made
05:28
entirely out of premium leather
05:30
they even had some collections where
05:31
they used the interior leather
05:33
of supercars to make their bands well
05:35
they still have those
05:36
but now they have iphone cases and even
05:39
air tag accessories too
05:41
the iphone case that we have here is
05:43
bandwig’s makakage line
05:45
which is made out of italian napal
05:46
leather by hand
05:48
now aside from the quality what is
05:49
really unique about this case is that it
05:51
comes in multiple colors
05:53
and you can customize it too by adding
05:55
your initials or even a logo
05:57
when you order it also handmade from the
05:59
same nappa leather
06:00
is bandwig’s new air tag key ring
06:02
accessory
06:03
which is the most premium air attack
06:05
keyring that i’ve ever seen
06:07
it even comes with these tools to
06:09
install your air tag in
06:10
check out bandwick’s line of apple
06:12
accessories by using the link
06:13
below okay the next chain that mark
06:15
german mentioned are
06:17
thinner bezels as well as a new
06:18
lamination technique
06:20
that brings the display closer to the
06:22
front cover
06:24
now thinner bezels are always welcome
06:26
john prosser also stated the same thing
06:28
by the way that apple has been testing
06:30
models with thinner display borders
06:32
but that he wasn’t sure if this would
06:34
indeed come
06:35
to the series seven or not and the way
06:37
margaret phrased it
06:39
makes it look like he’s not 100 sure of
06:42
it either
06:43
but rather that it is something that
06:45
apple has tried
06:46
and is currently considering by the way
06:49
i don’t actually think that the bezels
06:50
on the series 4
06:51
5 or 6 are thick by any means especially
06:54
since in most cases
06:56
you don’t even see them as the display’s
06:58
background
06:59
is black but of course that i would
07:01
never say no to a larger display
07:03
in the same form factor which is
07:04
essentially what we got
07:06
with the move from the series 3 to the
07:08
series 4.
07:09
now in terms of that display lamination
07:11
that mark german mentioned
07:13
i never really noticed this being an
07:15
issue on the apple watch
07:17
on the entravel ipad definitely and that
07:19
screen is not laminated
07:21
at all however one benefit of that
07:23
thinner lamination that i can think of
07:25
is a slightly increased brightness as
07:28
the pixels would be closer to the
07:29
surface
07:30
i also believe that this would also
07:32
result in reduced
07:33
reflections you probably noticed that
07:35
the apple watch display is actually
07:37
very reflective so a thinner lamination
07:40
could also reduce the amount of
07:42
reflections on the screen oh and
07:44
uh have you noticed how mark german
07:46
hasn’t actually said
07:47
anything in his report about the
07:49
redesign
07:50
more about that soon speaking of more uh
07:52
if you want to see more awesome and
07:54
interesting tech videos definitely
07:55
subscribe it’s it’s free
07:57
and that’s yeah that’s it so thanks and
07:59
something that we’ve heard rumored
08:00
before
08:01
is that the series seven might come with
08:04
a blood glucose monitoring sensor
08:06
now unfortunately mark german says that
08:09
this will not be ready for a commercial
08:10
launch
08:11
for at least a few more years he does
08:14
say that apple was considering putting a
08:16
body temperature sensor
08:17
in this year’s model but this will now
08:19
more likely be included
08:21
in 2022 inside the series
08:24
8. so from the looks of it at least
08:26
according to mark the series 7
08:28
would not have any extra sensors
08:31
which is a bit sad as this was what i
08:33
was really hoping to see the most
08:35
aside from that redesign of course
08:37
speaking of that redesign
08:39
what’s up with that is it still
08:41
happening like mark hasn’t said anything
08:42
about that
08:44
well um kinda so the first rumors of
08:48
that major redesign came from ming chi
08:49
kuo
08:50
who essentially said in late 2020 that
08:53
apple was working
08:54
on a significant form factor design
08:56
change that
08:57
could come as early as the second half
09:00
of 2021.
09:01
kuo hasn’t really said that it will come
09:03
this year but rather that it is in the
09:05
works
09:06
and it may come as early as this year
09:09
and technically john prosser even said
09:12
the same thing in his video he said that
09:14
his source never mentioned
09:15
that this is the apple watch series 7
09:18
but rather
09:19
that this is just a new apple watch that
09:21
apple is currently working on
09:23
john said in his video that this might
09:25
as well be the series 8
09:28
so yeah we just cannot know for sure and
09:30
the fact that mark hasn’t really said
09:31
anything about this redesign
09:33
is quite strange to me so
09:36
here’s what i think the original apple
09:38
watch design was unveiled
09:40
in 2014 then in 2018 four years later
09:43
we got the series 4 which was the first
09:46
redesign of the apple watch
09:48
so technically 2022 would be when the
09:51
next redesign
09:52
should happen if we go by what apple did
09:54
in the past
09:55
with the series four a four year design
09:57
cycle is also what apple usually does
10:00
with the macbook pros as well so i think
10:02
that it would actually make more sense
10:04
for us to get that redesign in 2022
10:06
rather than this year
10:07
but then i was thinking of something you
10:10
know how the apple watch series 4 came
10:12
out in 2018
10:13
so a year after the iphone 10s redesign
10:16
and pretty much had the same design
10:18
language
10:19
um and we got the iphone 12 the new
10:22
design language
10:23
in uh 2020 so technically if we go by
10:25
that logic
10:27
uh the apple watch redesign would
10:29
actually come this year
10:30
like if apple does not change the design
10:32
this year then the only upgrades would
10:34
be
10:34
the faster processor and the thinner
10:37
display lamination which most people
10:38
don’t care about so it’s just a faster
10:40
processor which again most people don’t
10:41
care about so
10:43
you can just buy the series 6. however
10:45
mark german might have said something in
10:47
his report
10:48
that might point to a redesign so
10:51
he said that the series 7 is getting
10:53
thicker
10:54
not in the way that users would actually
10:57
notice but
10:58
that the thickness will be increased so
11:00
maybe that is actually part of the
11:02
redesign
11:03
or if it’s not um then it would be even
11:06
stranger because
11:07
you know how the display assembly is
11:08
getting thinner so
11:11
obviously that saves space inside so why
11:13
is the apple watch getting thicker
11:15
if you know there’s more space inside
11:17
well it could be because apple is
11:19
considering
11:19
finally adding a larger battery which in
11:22
combination with the s7 processor
11:24
should give and could give the apple
11:27
watch a noticeably
11:28
improved battery life at least i sure
11:31
hope so
11:31
so at the end of the day it’s pretty
11:32
much these two options option one
11:35
uh no redesign and a faster processor
11:37
alongside an improved battery and of
11:39
course those lamination improvements or
11:41
option two
11:42
that redesign and we still get a better
11:44
improvement by the fact that we get
11:45
a thicker body as well um so obviously
11:49
everyone would want that redesign but i
11:51
don’t know i’m like 50 50 on that
11:53
i do hope that it happens but it also
11:56
might not happen until
11:57
next year speaking of next year mark
11:59
german also had some
12:01
things to say about the series 8 in 2022
12:05
the fact that it won’t be launching in
12:07
one model but three
12:08
instead the series 8 the sc2
12:11
and then a third model which would be
12:14
something targeted towards
12:15
extreme sports athletes this is actually
12:18
something that mark first reported back
12:19
in march 2021
12:21
that the apple watch would offer extra
12:24
impact resistance in the future
12:26
and just a rugged design similar to
12:28
traditional
12:29
casio g-shock watches and yeah i’m
12:32
definitely not a big fan of that
12:33
actually i’m not a fan of that at all
12:34
that just doesn’t make sense when you
12:36
can just buy
12:37
you know a case for your apple watch to
12:39
achieve the same result
12:40
why would you want to buy this
12:42
permanently cased apple watch
12:44
that will only be useful to you when
12:46
you’re doing some extreme sports and
12:48
then you know when you have to go to
12:49
i don’t know like a more formal event
12:51
like what do you do then you just buy
12:53
like a more premium apple watch
12:54
samsung also had the same thing with
12:56
their active line of galaxy phones
12:58
uh which by the way doesn’t exist
13:00
anymore
13:02
so um there you go let me know your
13:03
