Apple is reportedly experiencing production issues for its new smartwatch.

According to Bloomberg, a person familiar with the matter says the new design of the Apple Watch Series 7 has brought manufacturing challenges. An earlier report by Nikkei Asia sheds more light on the matter; small-scale production of the smartwatch begun last week, but there are "critical challenges" in meeting the necessary production performance when it comes to assembling the different electronics modules, components and displays.

Bloomberg reported in June that the Apple Watch Series 7 will be getting a redesign with thinner screen bezels and a new lamination process to bring the display closer to the front cover. In addition, the Apple Watch Series 7 could come in two new sizes. Other rumoured specs include a bigger battery, new colour options, and exclusive watch faces to take advantage of the bigger display.
