Why the Series 7 Is an Excellent Choice
The Apple Watch Series 7 isn’t drastically different from its predecessor, so this deal shouldn’t be an excuse to ditch your Series 6. But it does come with a handful of notable upgrades. There’s a bigger always-on display — with 20 percent more screen real estate — along with a full-size QWERTY keyboard that makes it far less frustrating to send texts. It’s a bit more durable too, with more water- and dust-resistance and stronger glass. Apple threw in fast charging as well, which is super useful on busy days when you don’t have much time to charge it.
As for software updates, Apple enhanced the precision of its ebiking fitness metrics and added better fall detection. Of course, you’ll also get the full suite of comprehensive health and fitness tracking features, including an ECG sensor, an SPO2 sensor, sleep tracking, a variety of workout modes (complete with Fitness +), and more. It’s certainly an ideal smartwatch for those who want a device that helps paint a full picture of their overall well-being.
