Since the launch of the first Apple Watch, Apple has largely kept the same design of its smartwatch. Although they further introduced slightly larger screens in the Series 4, for the most part it still looked the same. However, until the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 7, rumors of a potential redesign surfaced.
The rumors turned out to be, in a way, wrong.
Although the Apple Watch Series 7 was not a major redesign rumored to have occurred, there have been some design changes, but they are a bit subtle, but overall the watch still looks mostly the same. However, some rumors were accurate, such as the increase in screen size where it is now being pushed even closer to the edge.
According to Apple, we see a 20% larger screen area and a 40% thinner edge. Comparing it side by side with older models, the size upgrade becomes more obvious.
Speaking of screens, the 7 Series comes with a more crack-resistant screen, and will be the first Apple Watch to have IP6X certification for dust resistance and WR50 for water. Apple also claims that the Apple Watch Series 7 will be able to charge 33% faster than the Series 6, while maintaining the same battery life of 18 hours.
While there are no new health sensors, Apple has introduced some new software features such as fall detection during exercise, so basically, if you were wrong with the health features from previous models, then this shouldn’t be any different.
There will be a bunch of new bands available for users to choose from, and Apple has pointed out that old bands will remain compatible with the 7 Series despite the larger screen.
Prices for the Apple Watch Series 7 will start at $ 399 and will be available this fall without specifying special dates.
