What’s new with Apple Watch Series 7?
The 7th gen Apple Watch looks similar to its previous version but it actually features a couple of notable upgrades. The screen is actually bigger with 20 per cent more screen area which is made possible by reducing the bezels by 40 per cent. For added durability, it uses a “crack-resistant front crystal” for the stainless steel models making it the most durable Apple Watch yet. However, the aluminium models still use Ion-X front glass. The Apple Watch Series 7 is also water-resistant up to 50 metres and has IP6X dust resistant certification.
The watch still has your usual health sensors including blood oxygen saturation and heart rate monitoring with ECG. Apple has also improved its charging capabilities with a new USB-C charger. It can provide up to 8 hours of battery life for sleep tracking with a quick 8-minute charge. Meanwhile, you can also get a 0-80 per cent charge in 45 minutes.
