Just recently, the gg editorial staff shared with you that the size of the new watch model of one there apple company may increase noticeably. Now there seems to be no doubt about it anymore, so users are getting nervous about the new one.
At this point, it's safe to say that the Apple Watch Series 7 will get a brand new design with flat edges and new dimensions. While this isn't the first time Apple has changed the design of its smartwatch, such a major change has led to various rumors about Apple Watch Series 7 strap compatibility with previous generations of Apple Watch.
The first-generation Apple Watch was available in 38mm and 42mm cases, sizes that remained in place until the release of the Apple Watch Series 3. For the Apple Watch Series 4, the company made the device a bit more rounded and increased the size to 40mm and 44mm. However, all watch straps are interchangeable, which means you can use straps from Series 4 and later models on earlier models and vice versa.
This year, Apple is rumored to be increasing the size of the Apple Watch Series 7 to 41mm and 45mm. While this change is only 1mm, the Apple Watch Series 7 cases will be completely flat, which could result in straps from earlier versions not being compatible with the new models.
When it comes to some specific watch straps (such as the Braided Solo Loop), you may notice that they're not exactly a perfect fit for models prior to the Apple Watch Series 4, but they are compatible - and the same may happen with this year's Apple Watch models. You should also keep in mind that Apple will probably have to keep offering straps for the Apple Watch SE, which is unlikely to get a new design this year.
