Apple Watch Series 7 Review: Bigger and Better

Apple Watch Series 7

Apple has squashed all the predictions with Apple Watch Series 7 and has delivered a new watch that is very similar to the last ones. After using the Apple Watch Series 7 for almost a week and having previously worn the Apple Watch Series 3, a series of significant changes were observed.

Despite the lack of additional health functions or performance enhancements, the bigger display on Apple Watch Series 7 makes it an appealing upgrade and the best smartwatch you can purchase.

It’s tough to see the difference between the Apple Watch Series 7 and prior versions at first sight. There are no improvements in health tracking sensors, and the body style stays constant.

The price of the Apple 7 series smartwatch is Rs. 41,900.

Design

By looking at them side by side, it’s nearly hard to discern the difference between Series 7 and Series 6. The modest increase in case size — 45mm and 41mm for the Series 7 vs 44mm and 40mm for the Series 6 — can only be seen with a tape measure, and the slightly bigger curve at either edge can only be seen if you compare the two watches side by side. The left-hand side of the casing has a single slit speaker rather than the dual slit on the Series 6, but that’s about the only cosmetic difference.

The most noticeable features are the 1.7mm bezels, down from 3mm on the Series 6, and the increased viewing area. In comparison to the Series 6 and Watch SE, Apple claims 20% more screen area is visible, and 50% more than the Apple Watch Series 3. The Ion-X glass above the screen has a contoured edge, so the screen seems to curve toward the watch casing.

Display

It’s evident from Apple’s announcement and marketing that the display is the focal point of this year’s Watch. One could say that this is because not much has changed, instead of the new display, which is quite stunning compared to the previous versions. As already stated, the new Apple Watch has a much larger display that is marginally bigger than the previous models, and not in a way that anyone would realise just by looking at it.

As compared to the older Apple Watches, the new one has significantly better pixels. The 352*430 pixels and the 904 sq mm display area are present in the 41mm and 45mm versions, respectively. That’s about 20% more than the previous generation’s 40mm and 44mm versions, and 50% more than my old Series 3.

Battery

You might be disappointed to learn that the new Apple Watch Series 7 has the same dubious “all-day” battery life guarantee as with the Series 6. A plus point is that the battery life is not lesser as it has been for years and does not reduce after being used. The Watch is designed to provide a full day of usage with up to 47% battery left at the end of the day. 

The Apple Watch Series 7 has 33 per cent faster charging because people wear their watch throughout the day and charge it at night, and then put it back on to track their sleep, rather than charging it overnight. If you charge the Series 7 Watch for only eight minutes, you will get a complete eight hours of extensive sleep monitoring, and takes about0 45 minutes to get from nil to 80 per cent. The enhanced battery connector on the rear of the watch, as well as improvements to the new charging cable’s puck, are the key to this. But you will have to use the designated charger of the new Watch to enjoy the complete fast-charging experience.

Performance

The Series 7 Apple Watch has the same CPU as the Series 6 Apple Watch. New display drivers and a new power management system have been included in the bundle. So, if you’re wearing Apple Watch Series 6, there won’t be any significant difference to be noticed at a glance or in surface performance – all functions are as quick and responsive as previous versions. Users of the Series 5, SE, or previous versions will notice the Series 7’s fresh spring in its step since it is 20% faster than those models and significantly quicker than the older generations. Package modifications in the Apple series 7 aid in controlling the updated and bigger display and also in maintaining battery life stats.

The chip present in AppleWatch Series 7 is one of the most tempting reasons for a Series 5 user to upgrade.

Verdict: The Best Smartwatch In The Market

Smaller bezels and a 1mm case size difference have significantly improved the Apple Watch Series 7’s aesthetics and general appeal. Faster charging and an eight-minute zap for nighttime usage make the Watch’s limited battery life less of a concern, allowing you to use and enjoy it 24 hours a day. WatchOS 8 is dependable and simple to use; the health tracking is excellent even without any hardware upgrades, and the extensive customization options make it enjoyable to own.

It’s everything you want in a smartwatch since it seamlessly interacts with the iPhone while also having enough capability to be used on its own. It never feels unnecessary owing to a lack of functionality or bad app compatibility. The Apple Watch Series 7 has improved over the Series 6, and for those willing to pay the money, it seems like a reasonable upgrade to last year’s model. It’s also worth noting that Apple hasn’t increased the pricing in several generations, despite hardware and software advancements.

Apple has launched its Watch Series 7 with additional benefits and a bigger and better display. It is time to upgrade your existing apple watch and get the best thing now!
