We don't have an official comment from Apple on why its smartwatch took longer to come out than the other devices revealed on September 14.
It's thought that the change in design for the Apple Watch 7 caused the delay in the manufacturing process, but we don't expect Apple to officially confirm why it didn't arrive in September.
The Apple Watch 7 looks like a modest upgrade with a larger screen than previous smartwatches from the company. The display is said to be 70% brighter than previous Apple Watch products as well.
Fast charging has also been introduced to the Apple Watch 7, and it's said to be 33% faster than the Apple Watch 6.
