Apple Watch Series 7 was just announced by Apple at the California Streaming event. Apple’s smartwatch now has an edge-to-edge display, which makes it appear slimmer, especially when paired with some matching watch faces.
The Watch Series 7’s screen bezel has been reduced to just 1.7mm, and its always-on display is 70% brighter than before. Apple claims that the text content displayed on this year’s new model’s screen is up to 50% more than the Series 6. In addition, the new screen also offers many new ways to interact with the device, with a Complete keyboard, support input by swiping.
Included with the Watch Series 7 is a host of new watch faces that aim to make the most of the large screen area, including a more flexible, modular watch face. And if you’re thinking that the bigger the screen, the more fragile it is, then Apple claims the Watch Series 7 screen is shatterproof and the device itself is IP6X water/dust resistant – that’s despite all kinds of sand on the beach!
Apple Watch Series 7 still comes in two sizes: the small has a 41mm face instead of 40mm in the previous generation, and the large one has a 45mm face instead of 44mm. That makes the Series 7 the largest watch Apple has ever produced to date, and the small Apple Watch is actually only 1mm smaller than the largest Apple Watch ever introduced in 2014.
Like the Series 6, the Series 7 has 18 hours of battery life, and includes a charging dock via USB-C instead of USB-A. The aluminum version comes in a total of 5 colors: black, yellow, blue, red, and dark green.
Finally, let’s talk about Watch OS 8. Outdoor cycling mode is now better supported and will automatically stop when you stop at a red light or take a break. Fall mode will also appear during exercise, so if you accidentally stumble or have an injury, the watch will automatically call an ambulance.
The Watch Series 3 continues to sell for a starting price of $199, while the Watch SE will cost $279, and the new Series 7 will start at $399.
