Apple Watch 7

This is everything you need to know about the new Apple Watch 7, which was officially launched.

This year’s version of Apple Watch has finally been revealed along with other new goods like the iPhone 13 and iPad Mini 6, and it turns out that just about all of the rumors we’d heard before were wrong.

The Apple Watch 7 will be put through its paces in our testing labs, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available. Also, bookmark this page since we’ll be adding new information as it becomes available.

Cost and date of release

In spite of Apple’s confirmation, the Apple Watch 7 is expected to sell at $399 (£369, €399). That’s a $10 premium over the Apple Watch 6, which started at $379.

Size and GPS-only and 4G LTE versions will determine the exact costs of the Watch 7. There will be two varieties of the Watch 7, one at 41mm and one at 45mm.

Apple Watch 7 will be available for pre-order on Friday, October 8 and will be in stores on Friday, October 15 according to the company.

Display and design

There weren’t many changes to the design of the Apple Watch 7 compared to previous iterations; the rectangular shape with rounded corners was retained, but the bezels were 1.7mm narrower and the screen was 20 percent larger than that of the Apple Watch 6.

Additionally, the larger screen makes it easier to use, as the display is 70% brighter inside than its predecessor while using the Always-On feature.

A full QWERTY keyboard, which can be used by tapping or Quick Path, was incorporated on the Apple Watch 7 thanks to the additional storage space.

There was a lot of attention paid by Apple to the new Watch’s toughness, with features including a crack-proof crystal coating and an IP6X dust and water resistant rating.

Features

There isn’t much to report in terms of new features. Watch 7 owners may expect watch OS 8 and the first-ever keyboard on an Apple Watch when watch OS 8 launches this fall.

In addition to the Modular Max face, which packs even more information into the home screen, there are a number of additional watch faces designed specifically for the larger display of the Apple Watch 7.

Specs

The Apple Watch 7’s features are nearly identical to those of the previous model, right down to using the same S6 processor.

While the battery life hasn’t changed, quick charging has been added to make the experience a little more forgiving. Users can expect up to 18 hours of use on a single charge.

Fitness

It’s unlikely that we’ll see any rumored blood pressure sensors or glucometers in the Apple Watch 7, considering it has the same sensor suite as the Watch 6.

Many useful functions including monitoring your blood oxygen levels and heart rate will be included, as well as an ECG. Wearables running Watch OS 8 will have access to meditation sessions via the new Mindfulness app, which is also available through Fitbit’s Fitness Plus app.

And if you’re like riding, the Apple Watch will detect if you fall off your bike and send that information to your phone.
