This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple.

The Apple Watch 7 is back on track for a September launch after the company resolved reported production issues, according to MacRumors, which cited analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. That clears the way for its rumored reveal during Apple’s iPhone 13 event on Sept. 14.¬†

The manufacturing difficulties were linked to fitting all of the smartwatch’s new components together and a lamination technique used to bring the display closer to the glass, according to Nikkei Asia and Bloomberg. The Apple Watch 7 will start mass production in mid-September, to ship later in the month, Kuo reportedly said in a note.

The analyst also said next year’s Apple Watch 8 will include new health management features, predicting it’ll include body temperature measurement and essentially become a thermometer on your wrist.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
