Apple Watch Series 7 was launched alongside the new iPads and iPhone 13 series in India and is the successor to the Series 6. The new Apple Watch Series 7 brings an all-new display to the popular smartwatch with a refined design and maintains its 18-hour battery life. Apple says that the Series 7 is more durable and has a crack-resistant front display. It is also IP6X certified which makes it dust resistant and has WR50 water resistance.
“Apple Watch Series 7 delivers significant improvements — from our largest and most advanced display, to enhanced durability and faster charging — making the world’s best smartwatch better than ever before. Powered by watchOS 8, Apple Watch brings useful new capabilities to help customers stay connected, track activity and workouts, and better understand their overall health and wellness,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.
Apple has not revealed the exact price of the Watch Series 7. It is expected to reveal the price closer to the availability which is set for “later this year”. It is likely to replace the Series 6 so interested buyers can expect the same price point.
The new Apple Watch Series 7 has five new aluminium cases in multiple new colours. There’s midnight, starlight, green, blue and (PRODUCT) Red colours to choose from and also new styles in Apple Watch Nike and Apple Watch Hermes editions. The Series 7 will be available in 41mm and 45mm sizes.
