Read our review and impressions of the new 2021 Apple Watch Series 7.
One of the most important announcements of the first autumn presentation of Apple It turned out to be a smart watch. We’ve been waiting a very long time for the redesign of the company’s most personal gadget, the look of which hasn’t changed since the Apple Watch Series 4.
Another important point that the presentation should have answered was whether the straps from past generations of watches would fit the Apple Watch Series 7. If not, many will have to part with an impressive collection on tidy amount.
In general, questions a lot of, and the answers to most of them can be found in this material. So, let’s begin:
Apple Watch Series 7 become «square» like the iPhone and iPad?
Apple Watch Series 3 vs. Apple Watch Series 7 — the difference in appearance is global
No. The body has remained almost the same.
However, due to the enlarged screen, the device really does not look like it used to. Moreover, the manufacturer claims that the Apple Watch Series 7 is the most durable smartwatch it has ever made.
On the one hand, Apple says that the new gadget received a protective glass that should not break on contact with solid objects. On the other hand, the company claims protection against contact with dust according to the IP6X standard.
The small Apple Watch Series 7 has grown from 40mm to 41mm, while the large Apple Watch Series 7 has grown from 44mm to 45mm. Yes, this is the biggest smartwatch Apple has ever made. However, it is doubtful that this will somehow be felt on the hand.
Does Apple Watch Series 7 support bands from previous watches?
The aluminum version of the Apple Watch Series 7 is available in five colors
Yes! And it’s great!
This particular question interested me the most. However, it would be strange enough if Apple did otherwise. I can imagine the outrage about this huge number of people who have collected a collection of expensive bracelets.
If we talk about the aluminum version of the Apple Watch Series 7, it is available in five colors: space gray, silver, dark green, blue and red (RED). There will also be a couple of steel options and titanium in light and dark versions.
Another important innovation in the customization of smartwatches for themselves is fresh dials that previous models of smartwatches will not receive. They are optimized for the new screen sizes and look very good.
The main innovation of the Apple Watch Series 7 was the big screen
Compared to the previous generation, the screen of the Apple Watch Series 7 really fits more information
Frames are minimal!
Despite the numerous rumors that were discussed on the network, the new smart watch of your favorite company has become only an evolutionary continuation of the current line, and not a revolution. They have not changed in terms of design, but have received a large screen.
Yes, due to the reduction of the frames around the screen, the watch really began to look a little different. Moreover, this made it possible to fit a much larger display into exactly the same case. However, the number of inches was not specified during the presentation.
Importantly, the Apple Watch Series 7 always-on screen is 70% brighter than the previous generation of smartwatches. The frames around the display are now only 1.7 mm on each side. This is an important step forward.
Technical features of the new Apple Watch Series 7
Of course, all smartwatch interface elements have been adapted to the new screen size.
The main thing is fast charging.
Like the previous smartwatch model, Apple Watch Series 7 has a battery life of up to 18 hours. In practice, with not the most intensive use, they, as before, should work for about a day and a half. Norm.
More important is the presence of fast charging. Previously, the watch was powered by a proprietary station that connected to the power supply via USB-A. The connector was changed to USB-C with regular support for Power Delivery. The transfer of energy has accelerated.
The new smartwatch model is better suited for extreme cycling. She got fall control from it with a message to emergency contacts. I wonder if there will be real tests of this possibility on the net with a lot of abrasions.
