Apple Watch Series 7, few changes to continue reigning


Looking at the specifications and comparison between all these Apple Watch models, one thing is clear: the Apple Watch Series 7 is a discreet upgrade between generations. It is true that the increase in the screen is always a welcome improvement, as it brings new dials and more space with which to enjoy the watch.

In this generation, the screen is the main protagonist, where it is always good to have a larger diagonal

Developers get a bigger canvas to work with, an always welcome enhancement to push their apps forward. The screen increases by 20% more over previous generations, being more than 50% of what we find in an Apple Watch Series 3. This is achieved without modifying the size of the watch, but reducing the edges by 40%. In addition, we have an always-on mode 70% brighter in idle.

Apple Watch Series 7 swim

The Apple Watch Series 7 processor is the big question of this generation. Apple did not mention it during the keynote, which leads us to think that it is the same one we saw in the Apple Watch Series 6. We hope to dispel any doubts in the coming weeks.

Officially, the Apple Watch was not dust resistant until now. If we look with perspective, Apple Watch Series 7 is not a quantum leap on the apple clock. But it does bring improvements that add a lot, such as its larger screen, and others that add something to the whole. Of course, the Apple Watch receives a facelift to continue leading the smartwatch market.
