Apple Watch Series 7 review: A slightly better version of Apple Watch Series 6
Progress in the tech industry is usually synonymous with making gadgets smaller, lighter and more compact. But the Apple Watch Series 7 stands out for the opposite reason: It has the biggest screen of any Apple Watch yet.
Apple’s latest smartwatch launches on Friday, Oct. 15, and starts at $399 (AU$599, £369). It comes with a new screen that has about 20% more screen area than the Series 6’s and more than 50% compared to the Series 3’s. The Series 7’s roomier display also means it’s the first to come with a QWERTY keyboard and other characteristics that make better use of that extra real estate, such as bigger buttons in apps like Calculator and Alarms. While the enlarged screen is the Series 7’s most significant change, it’s not the only update Apple made to its new wearable. The design is more durable and dust resistant for the first time, it can charge up to 33% faster than the Series 6 and the aluminum casing comes in new color options.
