The Series 7 is only a moderate update to the Series 6, but Apple has made some significant improvements. Most notably, the Series 7 has a larger screen that makes it easier to see the time, messages, and other information displayed in the event of complications. The design seems unchanged, but it’s the first Apple Watch to be IP6X dust resistant, making it more durable than previous models. It also supports faster charging – we were able to get 10 percent juice after a 10-minute charge and the watch was fully charged in less than an hour.
Other than that, the Series 7 is pretty much the same as the Series 6. It has an always-on display, built-in GPS, ECG and blood oxygen measurement capabilities, fall detection, support for dozens of trackable workouts, and more. Our biggest complaint with the latest model in particular is the lack of sleep tracking – you can only track how long you’ve slept with the native watchOS feature, which is far less information than you’d get if you had a Fitbit or Garmin device on it. to do the same. But if that’s not a big concern to you, it’s hard to beat the Apple Watch for iPhone users looking for a wearable.
