The Apple Watch Series 7 is the largest and most durable Apple Watch to date. It has a tougher crystal on the front and is also IP6X-certified for dust protection.
It also has a larger screen, making it easier to use the device in daily life. It also comes with new features, such as a QWERTY keyboard and QuickPath text entry.
The Largest Always-on Retina Display
The Apple Watch Series 7 is the largest Always-on Retina display ever offered by an Apple Watch. It offers 20% more screen area than the Apple Watch SE and is more than 50% larger than the Series 3.
The new display features thinner borders, up to 40% smaller than those on the Series 6, which allow it to maximize screen area without changing the overall case size. It also has a curved design that makes full-screen watch faces and apps appear to flow smoothly with the curvature of the case.
This new watch is also a more durable option. It’s been designed to withstand drops and water splashes, so it’s ideal for active people. It’s also up to 33% faster to charge than the Series 6.
The Most Durable Apple Watch Ever
If you don’t want to spend the extra cash on an Apple Watch Series 8, and you don’t care about features like ECG, blood oxygen monitoring, temperature sensing, or a more rugged case design, the Apple Watch SE is still a good choice. It offers most of the same health and fitness tracking features as the newer models, including heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking, and it’s a great option for anyone looking for an affordable Apple Watch with a feature-packed design.
It’s not as durable as the Series 8 – it doesn’t come with an always-on display, for example – but it’s more robust in other ways. It also includes Crash Detection, which allows you to automatically contact emergency services if you’re in a crash.
The Most Advanced Fitness Tracker
Fitness trackers are becoming increasingly advanced, and the best ones offer everything from 24/7 heart rate tracking to advanced workouts. These watches are now pocket-sized personal trainers, combining smart technology with fitness metrics to help you reach your goals.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is a major step forward for sports and fitness tracking, not through new hardware changes, but through a slate of software upgrades driven by WatchOS 9. It’s significantly expanding Apple’s presence in this space and will encrouch on the lower to mid-tier multisport/running watches from Garmin, Venu and Polar.
The biggest improvement here is the new GPS/GLONASS sensor, which is more accurate than previous versions. It also delivers more advanced metrics, like vertical oscillation, ground contact time and stride length.
The Most Efficient Phone Caller
The Apple Watch Series 7 has the best of all worlds when it comes to performance, battery life and app support. The display is large and bright enough to see in the dark without a smudge, while the touchscreen is more than responsive. The watch also boasts an impressive number of sensors — and the company’s well known obsession with privacy has never been more evident than it is today. The best part is that it all works seamlessly together. It’s a real pleasure to leave the phone at home and walk into a room without having to worry about missing an important call or text message. This is all while juggling an exercise routine or a date. The most satisfying of all is that it all happens without you even realizing it — a feat of modern design rarely if ever occurs in a high end smartphone.
