Following renewed rumors of a blood pressure sensor in the forthcoming "Apple Watch Series 7," Mark Gurman says there is "no chance" that the feature will debut in the fall.

The new "Apple Watch Series 7" is reportedly seeing delays in manufacturer because of its complex new design. Rumors about the device's new features included one that it would add a blood pressure sensor, but those are now being denied by other sources.

Apple added blood oxygen tracking in the Apple Watch Series 6, and has previously applied for patents regarding blood pressure sensors, including ones using a kind of Watch band.

As yet, Apple has not announced a launch date for the expected "Apple Watch Series 7," although it is expected to be launched in September. Apple has, however, release beta versions of the forthcoming watchOS 8.
