The Apple Watch Series 7 looks a little different than its predecessors. The display now goes virtually to the edge of the case. That means a slick new look for some watchfaces.
The bezels around the display are slimmer at just 1.7mm and the always-on screen mode is 70 percent brighter. Apple claims you can cram 50 percent more text onto the display than the Series 6 and the new display also means new ways to interact, with a full keyboard that will support swiping.
There’s a whole new set of watchfaces to take advantage of the larger screen, including a more modular watchface.
The small Apple Watch went from 40mm to 41mm and the big Watch from 44mm to 45mm. That makes these watches the largest Apple Watches to date. In fact, the small Apple Watch is now just 1mm smaller than the largest one introduced back in 2014.
Like the Series 6 the new Series 7 will offer up to 18 hours of battery life and include a charger that charges via USB-C instead of USB-A. Developing… we’re adding more to this post, but you can follow along with our iPhone 13 and Apple Watch event live blog to get the news even faster.
