If you plan to order an Apple Watch, the apple online store it is the best place. Customers who order direct have access to the exclusive elastic silicone bands Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop, and can choose their preferred case and band combination, so their watch will be perfectly tailored to your tastes right out of the box.
The Apple Watch Series 7 doesn’t have the redesign hinted at in the leaks; remember, leaks are not always accurate, but it does have some subtle changes. The Retina display is 2-20 percent larger than the Series 6, with a 1.7mm bezel that’s 40 percent thinner than before.
The visual change comes from a 2.5D curve around the screen, so it cascades over the edge of the body and is covered in crack-resistant glass that’s 50 percent thicker than before for durability.
Apple says this gives the Watch Series 7 a smoother look, which is enhanced by the rounded corners of the case. It’s not just about looks though – the larger screen has a 50 percent increase in text capacity.
It’s even big enough to display a full keyboard with just a tap or swipe. Always-on display returns; and it’s 70 percent brighter when viewed indoors, but the best news is the IP6X dust resistance certification, which adds to the existing W50 water resistance rating.
There are several new watch faces, each made specifically for the larger curved display. Contour emphasizes the edge of the screen by pressing the dial to the right and animates to highlight the time.
Modular Duo places two large hands in the center of the screen, while World Time adds a 24-hour time zone to the face. Also look for the Portraits watch face in WatchOS 8, which animates portrait photos taken with your iPhone. All new dials will be compatible with the Apple Watch Series 4 onwards.
The aluminum model comes in five colors: Midnight, Starlight, Green, Blue, and Product Red; Plus, it supports new watch faces made specifically for the larger curved display.
One thing the rumors got right is a slight increase in size, as the 7 Series comes in 41 or 45mm case sizes. Despite this, the Series 7 is compatible with all existing watch straps, so there is no need to worry if you already have a collection.
Series 7 will use WatchOS 8.
Apple will debut versions of Nike and Hermés released with the Series 7, each with new straps. The Nike version will be available with Sport Loop straps in three different colors that combine the logo and Swoosh text on the strap fabric. A new Nike Bounce watch face will be part of the collection, and it animates when you touch the screen or wear the Digital Crown.
For Hermés, there are two new straps: the Circuit H, which is made of leather and has a chain-like design, and the Gourmette Double Tour, which has been designed to recall the necklaces with a link motif that Hermés designed on the 1930s.
Wondering about technology? Apple hasn’t said anything different, so we have to assume it uses the same Apple S6 processor used in the Series 6. It also has the same set of sensors on the back, ready to measure heart rate and blood oxygen and take an electrocardiogram (ECG).
There is a new fall detection function that works in workouts and when riding a bike, and through WatchOS 8, the Series 7 will measure the breathing rate during sleep.
Continuing with your workouts, there’s a new voice feedback system in which information is sent to you through the speaker or through a pair of Bluetooth-connected headphones, including activity status, training milestones, and other designed data. to motivate you and keep you focused.
Apple says the battery will last a full day (18 hours) before needing a recharge. New fast-charging technology brings the Apple Watch Series 7 battery to 88 percent charge in 45 minutes.
