You know, Apple Watch Series 7 is actually a pretty a big deal

Sure, the Apple Watch Series 7 does not in any way resemble its rumors, which led to disappointment for some Apple Watch fans. But, uou know, Apple Watch Series 7 is actually a pretty a big deal.

The stunning Apple Watch Series 7 display is nearly 20 percent larger than that of Apple Watch Series 6, and over 50 percent larger than that of Apple Watch Series 3, with an optimized user interface for greater readability and ease of use.

It’s true, the Apple Watch Series 7 doesn’t bring new sensors compared to the Apple Watch Series 6 but let’s think about someone with the Series 4 or even the Series 3, which Apple still sells. Here are some of the benefits of this year’s model:

• Larger display with Always-On technology, 70% brighter when your wrist is down compared to last year’s model;

• Up to 50% faster chip;

• Updated ECG sensor, blood oxygen measurement sensor, fall detection;

• Up to twice the storage, with 32GB on the Wi-Fi model.

These are all amazing improvements for anyone who’s been an owner of the Apple Watch for at least three years.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple Watch had us on Day One. And vice versa. All we need to know about Apple Watch Series 7 is the release date!

  1. A slightly larger display is nice but not necessary. As for the memory, O2 sensor, faster processor I see no need. I don’t leave the display on as I find that annoying. My current version 5 does what I need it to which is provide notifications and tell the time. I would like cellular but the cost to operate the cellular connection is too high. I pay $8.50 a month for my iphone service. Adding a cellular watch means switching to a high priced plan plus extra fee for the watch. Not worth it for me. So nothing compelling. The watch even looks almost the same as version 5.

    1. I have a Series 3 (38mm) and it does all I need. And it’s the smallest and lightest, especially with the fabric (Velcro) loop band I just got for it. However, I really like the look of the new display that goes so close the edge and overlaps with the curve. Maybe it’s “not necessary” but appearance is important in a watch.

  2. I bought the first Watch when ECG was added. At 77 (now) with 5 cancers since my late 50’s I want all the help I can get. Now there is little to motivate me. Maybe in a year or two, but I’ll be looking for more sensors and more “other” information on the display. I already have Dexcom information that is synced to my iPhone, which is synced to the actual Dexcom sensor stuck on my belly. The level of information is actually better than when I used the Dexcom Receiver instead of the iPhone.

    Next up is going to be the M1 MacBook Pro when upgraded.

  3. As a day 1 adopter of the 1st AppleWatch, I am ready to upgrade. I sustained some damage to mine about 3 weeks ago. My AppleCard is ready. All I need is the date! Apple – the ball is in your court now. Come get my money.
