Apple Watch 7: features and prices
Apple Watch Series 7 is Apple’s new smartwatch, and it’s official: here are features, availability, price in Italy.
From the stage of the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Apple has made official the new iPhone 13 range , the new iPad and iPad mini 2021 and Apple Watch Series 7 . From the new generation of the smart watch with the Apple, many other news were expected to hear the rumors, especially in terms of design, but Apple did its own thing anyway and there is so much to say.
Apple Watch Series 7 is so official, and despite the rumors of the eve it does not arrive with a totally new design similar to that of the iPhone 12 and 13. The news is not lacking, because the company has worked to further optimize the available space, and this is how the Cupertino smartwatch manages to evolve previous projects: the Apple Watch Series 7 screen is about 20 percent larger than that of Series 6, and consequently can therefore display 50% more text . There is also a 70% brighter Always on Display . This and other news in the face of a price list that should not suffer wheelies.
Apple Watch Series 7: features
During the presentation and in the press release, Apple was silent on the chip that equips the new Watch Series 7. The reason is linked to the fact that the chip of the new smartwatch is the same as the previous generation (and it is not the first time, it was already happened in the transition from Series 4 to 5). The powerful Apple S6 therefore remains in control .
The biggest change in Apple Watch Series 7 is the screen, which by virtue of thinner edges has a larger viewing area than ever before: so there is more space for information thanks to the new dials. The Apple watch is available in 41 and 45 mm sizes , which is one millimeter more than in the past.
Apple claims to have significantly improved the construction of its watch: there is a crystal glass that is 50% more resistant than that of Series 6 and which boasts IP6X certified resistance to dust and liquids, while the water resistance remains unchanged according to the standard WR50. The battery of Apple Watch Series 7 benefits from a charge of 33% faster: so in just 8 minutes you get 8 hours of battery life, for a total of 18 hours declared.
Among the novelties on the software side, however, there is the possibility of monitoring e-bike workouts in addition to those with the traditional bicycle.
