Apple Watch Series 7 is more durable and IP6X dust resistant.
Apple launched Apple Watch Series 7 on September 14, 2021, with a reengineered Always-On Retina display that has a much larger screen area and thinner boundaries, making it the largest and most sophisticated display ever. The display’s smaller margins allow it to maximize screen space while affecting the watch’s proportions vary slightly. Apple Watch Series 7 has a revised design with softer, more rounded corners, and the display has a distinctive refractive edge that allows full-screen watch faces and apps to appear to blend seamlessly with the case’s curve.
The Apple Watch Series 7 also has a user interface that is tailored for the larger display, allowing for better reading and simplicity of use, as well as two new watch faces — Contour and Modular Duo — that were created exclusively for the device. Users benefit from the same all-day 18-hour battery life with the display upgrades, as well as 33 percent faster charging.
With a tougher, more crack-resistant front crystal, Apple Watch Series 7 is the most durable Apple Watch ever. It’s the first Apple Watch to receive an IP6X dust-resistance certification, as well as a WR50 water-resistance rating. The new Apple Watch includes an electrical heart sensor and ECG app3, as well as a Blood Oxygen sensor and app, which are both essential tools for health and wellness. 4 New workout styles, the new Mindfulness app, novel accessibility features, better access with Apple Wallet, and additional capabilities with the Home app, as well as changes to Messages and the Photos app, help users stay healthy, active, and connected with watchOS 8.
Apple Watch Series 7 introduces a variety of new band colors and designs, as well as five new aluminum case finishes. Later this fall, the whole Apple Watch Series 7 collection will be available.
“Apple Watch Series 7 delivers significant improvements — from our largest and most advanced display, to enhanced durability and faster charging — making the world’s best smartwatch better than ever before,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “Powered by watchOS 8, Apple Watch brings useful new capabilities to help customers stay connected, track activity and workouts, and better understand their overall health and wellness.”
Apple Watch Series 7 offers nearly 20 percent more screen area and thinner borders at just 1.7 mm — 40 percent smaller than those on Apple Watch Series 6. The Always-On Retina display is up to 70% brighter indoors than the Apple Watch Series 6 display when the wrist is down, making it easier to see the watch face without having to elevate the wrist or wake the display.
The user interface has been tweaked to make use of the new display’s form and size. The Apple Watch Series 7 includes two new larger font sizes, as well as a new QWERTY keyboard that can be tapped or swiped with QuickPath — allowing users to slide a finger to type — and uses on-device machine learning to predict the next word based on context, making text entry quicker and faster. Larger menu titles and buttons in apps like Stopwatch, Activity, and Alarms make it even easier to interact with the screen in watchOS 8.
Most Durable Apple Watch
Apple Watch Series 7 is more durable and IP6X dust resistant. The front crystal on Apple Watch Series 7 has been rebuilt with a stronger and more robust shape that is over 50% thicker than that on Apple Watch Series 6, making it more crack-resistant without sacrificing optical clarity. The Apple Watch Series 7 is also dust-resistant, making it more durable in situations such as the beach or the desert, while still providing good swimming performance with a WR50 water resistance rating.
Through a revolutionary charging architecture and Magnetic Fast Charger USB-C Cable, Apple Watch Series 7 enables all-day 18-hour battery life on a single charge, as well as 33 percent faster charging than Apple Watch Series 6.
Additional watch faces created specifically for the bigger display on Apple Watch Series 7 are available in watchOS 8. The redesigned Contour face moves the dial all the way to the edge of the screen and animates seamlessly throughout the day, highlighting the current hour. With two huge, data-rich center elements, the new Modular Duo face takes advantage of the extra screen surface. Separately, on Apple Watch Series 4 and later, the classic World Time face, based on historical watches and perfect for travelers, tracks the time in 24 time zones across a double dial and is available. The Portraits face makes use of the iPhone Portrait mode’s depth capabilities to provide a stunning, individualized experience.
The new Wallet and Home app features make it easier to go to the automobile and the places where users live, work, and visit. Staying in touch with loved ones has never been easier thanks to updates to Messages and the Photos app.
Anyone who rides a bike would like the new capabilities in watchOS 8. Apple Watch analyses GPS, heart rate, accelerometer, and gyroscope data to recognize when users start a ride and prompt them to start an Outdoor Cycle workout if they haven’t already. Cyclists will see their stats from when they initially started their workout, as with all automated Workout reminders. Cycling sessions also have auto-pause and resume features, so measurements accurately reflect time spent moving rather than motionless, such as waiting at a stoplight.
Fall detection on Apple Watch has proven to be a crucial safety feature since its launch in 2018, identifying if a user remains motionless for around one minute if a hard fall is detected and triggering an emergency call from the wrist. Fall detection algorithms in watchOS 8 have been upgraded and optimized for detecting falls during exercises, such as cycling, and have been tailored to distinguish the specific motion and impact of falls from a bike and other workout kinds.
The Apple Watch Series 7 collection introduces five new aluminum case colors: midnight, starlight, green, a new blue, and (PRODUCT)RED, as well as an enticing palette of Apple Watch bands compatible with all Apple Watch models. Furthermore, the Apple Watch Series 7 is backward compatible with prior Apple Watch bands. The hues of the stainless steel models, Apple Watch Edition, Apple Watch SE, and Apple Watch Series 3 will remain the same.
