Apple Watch Series 7 was announced alongside the iPhone 13 family back in September, but preorders are just now available for the smartwatch.
The Series 7 doesn’t change a whole lot from the Series 6 and keeps the same starting price of $399 — though costs can vary depending on size, case material and Wi-Fi versus cellular. The Series 7 is replacing the Series 6 as the flagship option alongside the SE (starting at $279) and Series 3 (starting at $199).
There are a lot of Series 7 options to choose from, so here are some handy links:
Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS in Midnight, Starlight, green, blue and Product Red (starting at $399; amazon.com and apple.com) Apple Watch Series 7 45mm in Midnight, Starlight, green, blue and Product Red (starting at $429; amazon.com and apple.com) Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS + Cellular in Midnight, Starlight, green, blue and Product Red (starting at $499; amazon.com and apple.com) Apple Watch Series 7 45mm GPS + Cellular in Midnight, Starlight, green, blue and Product Red (starting at $529; amazon.com and apple.com) Those looking for a stainless steel Apple Watch will pay a bit more for a 41mm or 45mm size. Apple also offers this style of Apple Watch in graphite, gold or silver. Similarly, it’s $100 more for the cellular variant of the stainless steel models.
Apple Watch Series 7 41mm GPS + Cellular Stainless Steel in graphite, gold and silver (starting at $699; amazon.com and apple.com) Apple Watch Series 7 45mm GPS Stainless Steel in graphite, gold and silver (starting at $749; amazon.com and apple.com) The fast charging cable for Apple Watch is also up for order at $29 — just keep in mind that this will fast charge the Series 7 and charge the previous models at a normal rate.
APPLE Apple Watch Series 7 starts with a larger Retina display that stretches to the edges. It’s a 20% bigger display over the Series 6, which aims to let you see more — be it a large text message or a lengthy email. And no, the Apple Watch itself hasn’t gotten any larger; the bezels around the display are significantly smaller to accommodate more screen space at about 1.7 millimeters thick.
Series 7 will come in two variations: 41mm or 45mm, representing the watch’s small and large sizes. Both of these are about a millimeter larger than previous Apple Watch sizes. Apple also says it is a 70% brighter display, which should make content more vibrant and easier to see in low-light conditions. The other bonus is that since it’s an always-on display (meaning that the screen never goes dark, with key aspects always available) — a key difference between the Series 7 and the SE — it should be easier to quickly glance at your wrist for information rather than raising it.
To take advantage of the larger display here, watchOS 8 and the overall interface has been updated. Buttons are larger and easier to tap, but you can also take advantage of new watch faces that stretch to the edge of the display. All of the classic apps — including activity, fitness, messages, phone, calendar and photos — are here and updated in some capacity to take advantage of the larger display (e.g., showing more on a screen or the ability to type on a full keyboard). We expect the performance within any application to be the same as the Apple Watch Series 6 since it uses a similar chipset inside. We don’t expect significant performance improvements this year, though.

A larger display means a larger surface area and more glass, but Apple promises a crack-resistant front display. We’ll be putting this to the test, but it should be tougher against scratches and drops. Series 7 is also the first dust-resistant Apple Watch (IP6X rated), along with keeping the water resistance (WR50 rated) that we’ve seen on previous models.
