Apple Watch Series 7 now official
Apple has officially launched the latest Watch Series 7 equipped with a refined design with enhanced durability, faster charging, new aluminum case colors, and watchOS 8.
The Apple Watch Series 7 features an Always-On Retina display with more screen area and thinner borders. It offers nearly 20% more screen area and thinner borders at just 1.7mm — which is 40% smaller than those on Apple Watch Series 6.
Moreover, watchOS 8 debuts additional watch faces designed for the larger display on Apple Watch Series 7.
The latest Apple Watch is geared with health and wellness features, including an electrical heart sensor and ECG app and a Blood Oxygen sensor and app. The watchOS 8 also brings new updates for cycling, workout, and fall detection. In addition, the new Apple Watch uses advanced algorithms to analyze GPS, heart rate, accelerometer, and gyroscope data.
According to Apple, the watchOS 8 also features new workout types, the new Mindfulness app, innovative accessibility features, greater access with Apple Wallet, and more capabilities with the Home app, along with enhancements to Messages and the Photos app.
Furthermore, Apple claims that the new Watch Series 7 comes with 18-hour battery life with 33% faster charging than Apple Watch Series 6, through a new charging architecture and Magnetic Fast Charger USB-C Cable.
The Watch Series 7 also secures an IP6X certification for resistance to dust and maintains a WR50 water resistance rating. In addition, it has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will be available in five new aluminum case colors: Midnight, Starlight, Green, and a new Blue and (PRODUCT) RED, along with a range of new band colors and styles compatible with all models of Apple Watch. Additionally, Apple Watch Series 7 offers backward compatibility with previously released Apple Watch bands.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is priced starting at USD 399. It will be available in the Philippines later this year, with the local pricing yet to be announced.
