The Apple Watch Series 7 was unveiled today at the company’s “California streaming” event. Since the initial generation of Apple Watches in 2015, the latest model is the eighth in the series of smartwatches released by the Cupertino company. The Apple Watch Series 7 is a considerable advance over the Series 6 from last year, with a major makeover.
The new, larger display in the same overall body is the most significant upgrade. By decreasing the bezels to 1.7mm, Apple could stretch the screen to the edges of the shell, making it 40% thinner than the Series 6. According to the manufacturer, this allowed the display to expand by 20%.
The glass cover on Apple’s Watch Series 7 is considerably more crack-resistant, and the watch also has an IP6X dust-protection grade and WR50 water resistance.
With freshly redesigned UI features, such as larger buttons, WatchOS will take advantage of the larger display. Notifications will now display more text, and the Apple Watch will now have a full QWERTY keyboard for texting. You’ll be able to tap or slide, and Apple QuickPath will guess what you’re trying to enter using machine learning.
The new Apple Watch Series 7 has a faster-charging capability. It can track up to 8 hours of sleep in just 8 minutes of charging. The buttons on the Apple Watch Series 7 have been made larger to make them easier to use. It has an IP6X rating for water resistance and is also swim-proof. The S7 chipset is used in the new Apple Watch Series 7.
The new Apple Watch Series 7 has been launched for $399 and will be available later this fall. The Apple Watch Series 3 will remain on sale, starting at $199, alongside the Watch SE, which begins at $279.
