The new display of Apple Watch Series 7 offers nearly 20% more screen area and thinner borders at just 1.7 mm — 40% smaller than those on Apple Watch Series 6. Through an innovative design that maximizes the screen area while minimally changing the dimensions of the overall case size, Apple Watch Series 7 is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes. While the wrist is down, the Always-On Retina display is up to 70 percent brighter indoors than that of Apple Watch Series 6, making it easier to see the watch face without having to lift the wrist or wake the display.

Sami Fathi for MacRumors:

Apple says the new ‌Apple Watch Series 7‌ features a 20% larger screen than the Series 6, primarily thanks to reduced bezels that allow the screen to slightly curve at the edges. Apple has a side-by-side comparison of the Series 7 to the Series 6 on its website, but for an apparent, real-world look, an image has now been shared on Twitter.

The image clearly shows the ‌Apple Watch Series 7‌ featuring a noticeably larger display than the Series 6, despite the case size only increasingly slightly.

MacDailyNews Take: It’s why this is now feasible:

Apple Watch Series 7 offers a new QWERTY keyboard that can be tapped or swiped with QuickPath, allowing users to slide a finger to type.

  1. None of these pictures on the net do the difference justice. You really have to have the actual watches in front of you to appreciate the difference. Apple says 20%. And that’s true. But it’s the outside of the screen that added to, making the difference seem larger than 20%.

    When I got mine today and compared it to my 6, the difference was really obvious. It’s not subtle as some are saying. The difference is enough to get many things that seem just a bit too small to easily hit over the size where they suddenly become easy. It’s very noticeable.

  2. So glad I bought one of the last Gold Aluminum 44mm GPS + Cellular Series 6 Apple Watches. The idea that there’s no Gold Aluminum Series 7 is unconscionable. Shame on Apple for discontinuing such a basic color. Sure there’s still Gold Stainless Steel. But it’s a completely different shade of Gold – Shiny instead of Matte.
