Apple Watch Series 7 fewer frames than ever, more resistance to shocks and the same essence as always

We already have with us the new Apple Watch Series 7, its new generation of smartwatch that debuts a new design and incorporates a larger screen than the previous Apple Watch. A generational change that introduces one of the biggest leaps to date in the history of Apple’s smartwatch and that, as had been rumored, is accompanied by relevant innovations, especially in the resistance of the device.

The device arrives together with the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 mini, Apple Watch Series 7, and the new iPad mini 2021 and iPad 2021 These are the novelties of the Apple Watch Series 7, which with its larger panel and with more resolution it provides a significant aesthetic change. A new model that also presents new functions to measure our activity and comes together with different exclusive spheres.

More screens, fewer frames

More screen, fewer frames

As rumored, the new Apple Watch comes with a major change in design, and that is that its bezels have been reduced to a minimum. Apple talks about a 40% reduction in bezels, now going edge-to-edge panel. Similarly, the screen is promised to be 70% brighter, a significant leap for better viewing of the panel outdoors.

As we have already seen in previous generations, it has an always-on-screen option. You don’t need to lift your wrist to activate it, it stays always on. If we do not like the excess battery that this consumes, we can deactivate it from the settings.

Although the screen and its resistance increase, the body is much more similar. Something more curved, but with the line of the previous models and the crown in its place

The design remains practically identical, with a rounded body and the crown in the upper right part. The box is once again made of aluminum, with a little more curvature than in the previous generation, like the panel.

The user interface has been redesigned to accommodate the new screen size. Apple promises that the Series 7 will fit 50% more text than the Series 7. In the same way, they boast resistance, with break-resistant glass and with IP6X protocol and WD50 resistance.

Fast charging improves according to Apple by 33%. They also indicate that 8 minutes are enough to last a whole night (8h) while measuring sleep.

The fast charging of the device has also been improved. The new Apple Watch Series 7 promises 33% faster charging compared to Series 6, and an 8-minute charge is enough to have enough battery to last a night of sleep monitoring.

Luckily, fears about new band sizes are not fulfilled: the bands of your old Apple Watch are compatible with the Series 7, which shares the same size as the rest of the models.

Health features continue to take center stage on the Apple Watch. In this generation, we repeat the measurement of oxygen in the blood, in addition to being able to perform electrocardiograms (for informational purposes, not valid as medical tests).

New sports modes, such as Tai Chi or Pilates, are also added to the list of current modes. The Series 7 arrives with WatchOS 8, so we will have all the news at the software level related to stress measurement, sleep, the Fitness app, and more.
