Aside from a few minor adjustments, the general design of the Apple Watch hasn't changed much since it first appeared in 2015. The's Series 4 brought slimmer bezels and a larger display, but the same old rounded profile remained. But recent leaks have suggested a sharp new look is coming this year – and new renders might have given us our best glimpse of it yet.
The 3D renders reveal a flat-edged design akin to the iPhone 12 and iPad Pro, matching up to recent rumours that the Apple Watch is set to join the flat pack this year.

Courtesy of 91mobiles (opens in new tab), the CAD-based renders come from "industry sources" (Tim Cook, perhaps?). And while those flat edges are new, much has stayed the same – including the placement of the power button and digital crown. Like the Series 6, the new model is expected to offer 40mm and 44mm screen sizes.
Earlier this year, Apple leaker Jon Prosser claimed the Series 7 could also offer a new colour: green. This makes sense – both the iPad Air 4 (opens in new tab) and iPhone 12 (opens in new tab) were released in a mint green shade last year, so it's reasonable to expect a similar hue might make its way to the Apple Watch line up.
While the Apple Watch release schedule isn't quite as strict as the annual cycle for the iPhone, new versions of the device are generally released every year. With that in mind, we're hoping to see the Series 7 as soon as this September. But if you can't wait, check out the best Apple Watch deals below – and be sure to visit our main Apple deals page.
