Ahead of its expected announcement next month, Apple’s next Apple Watch looks like it has appeared in a regulatory database. While not explicitly listed as the Apple Watch Series 7, that’s exactly what model numbers A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477, and A2478 are believed to be.

Spotted by the folks at Consomac, the new model numbers appeared in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database. That database lists every product that supports encryption that is planned to be sold in some European countries.

EEC appearances have outed products before, including the current iPhone 12 lineup. Devices tend to appear in the database a few weeks before they go on sale, often giving us a hint as to what Apple is getting ready to announce.

The arrival of the Apple Watch Series 7 will be no surprise to anyone, of course. The wearable is due to be announced in the next few weeks regardless, but it’s still interesting to see it appear in this manner.

Previous reports have the Apple Watch Series 7 shipping with a new S7 processor as well as a redesigned chassis and display. That display is also expected to sport a new design with a smaller bezel, too.

It’s likely that Apple will discontinue the outgoing Apple Watch Series 6, although you never to know for sure when you’re dealing with the fluid Apple Watch lineup.
