The Apple Watch Series 7 was a device we thought we knew a lot about, but it turned out that the rumors this time were partially wrong. Indeed, Apple has come up with bigger screens on the new models of smartwatches, but their design is only evolutionary compared to previous generations and does not completely change the exterior, as we would have expected. However, in terms of features, the Series 7 does not come with many new features.
Apple Watch Series 7 changes the design, but differently than we expected
Apple started the presentation of the Apple Watch Series 7 with a demonstration of endurance. Behind the improved resistance is a new glass protection, which is much thicker. It has a straight base and is curved only on the outside, giving the impression of a curved screen. In reality, the OLED screen is actually flat.
However, the screen is 22% larger than on the Series 4-6 generations and is brighter in the always-on mode. However, the larger screen allows you to display a larger amount of content, especially useful for reading and replying to messages. It also helps that there is finally a QWERTY keyboard on which to write those messages. Apple says it uses AI algorithms to ensure correct keystrokes, just as it does on the iPhone, where the keyboard changes the size of the keys in the background depending on the words you type.
In addition to the crash resistance of the screen, for the first time, Apple watches also receive an IP6X dust rating and continue to adhere to the WR50 standard for water resistance for swimming activities. Even Apple also presented water sports activities such as surfing. This means that salt water should not affect the resistance of the watch.
In terms of autonomy, we face the same performance as before: 18 hours of use, or “a full day”, as Apple says. However, the last three generations of Apple Watch, Series 4, 5 and 6, have shown that Apple has a conservative estimate of autonomy, and can exceed one day of use.
However, there is an advantage in terms of charging: the new magnetic charging adapter for Apple Watch has a USB-C plug and allows faster charging. The Apple Watch Series 7 charges 33% faster than the Series 6 and can provide 8 hours of sleep monitoring with 10 minutes of charging. A full charge could take less than an hour.
Prices remain unchanged, but the watch has no release date
While prices for the base model, with aluminum case, remain the same as last year (429/459 euros) for the new models, Apple has not offered a release date for the Watch Series 7. It seems that rumors about production issues proved to be real, and the company is forced to delay these devices in the market. How long they will be late, we do not know, but probably a maximum of two months, as the promise is that they will arrive in stores “this fall”. Of course, just like previous generations, the Series 7 will be available in steel and titanium versions.
Apple Watch Series 3 and SE remain on offer as budget options, at the same prices as last year: 219 euros for the basic model and 299 euros for the average.
