Apple has unveiled Apple Watch Series 7, which features a larger, more sophisticated display, according to the brand.
The company released a press statement that stated, “A redesigned style with better durability, faster charging, new aluminium case colours, and watchOS 8.”
The watch has a “reengineered Always-On Retina display,” which means it has a larger screen area and thinner borders than prior models.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is touted to have improved readability and ease of use, as well as two new watch faces — Contour and Modular Duo — that were created exclusively for the gadget.
The device’s new bigger display “is now complimented with 33 percent faster charging,” according to the company.
The Apple Watch is the first to receive an IP6X certification for dust protection, as well as a WR50 water resistance rating, according to the apple.
An electrical heart sensor and ECG app, as well as a Blood Oxygen sensor and app, are included for health and workout enthusiasts.
It boasts a 20% larger screen surface and 1.7 mm thin borders, which are 40% smaller than the Watch Series 6’s. It comes in two sizes: 41mm and 45mm.
The Always-On Retina display is up to 70% brighter indoors than the Apple Watch Series 6, according to the brand, making it easier to see the watch face without having to lift the wrist or wake the display.
It also has two larger font sizes, a new QWERTY keyboard that can be tapped or swiped with QuickPath — allowing users to slide a finger to type — and on-device machine learning that predicts the next word based on context, making text entry quicker and faster.
Most Durable Apple Watch Ever
The front crystal of the Apple Watch Series 7 has been revamped with a tougher structure that is almost 50 percent thicker than that of the Apple Watch Series 6. It improves crack resistance while maintaining optical clarity.
It’s also dust-resistant, making it more durable in situations like the beach or the desert, while still providing good swimming performance owing to its WR50 water resistance rating.
Through a new charging architecture and Magnetic Fast Charger USB-C Cable, the new watch enables all-day 18-hour battery life on a single charge and 33 percent faster charging than the Apple Watch Series 6.
Additional watch faces specifically built 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 centre elements, the new Modular Duo face takes advantage of the extra screen surface.
