Despite a few nips here and tucks there, the overall design of the Apple Watch hasn't changed a great deal since it first arrived in 2015. This year's Apple Watch Series 7 brought one of the most significant changes yet, with the first truly edge-to-edge display. But if you're expecting big things in 2022, prepare for disappointment.

New renders based on CAD files have given us our first glimpse of the Apple Watch Series 8 and it looks a lot like, er, the Apple Watch Series 7. And by a lot, we mean a lot. And by that, we mean identical. Check out the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals if you're in the market for a new wearable.
