Despite the Apple Watch Series 7 availability in the market, it is clear that, unlike previous years, there aren’t any unique features. Of course, the screen is bigger than Series 6 but other than that, Series 7 isn’t huge advancement over its predecessor. It’s hard to distinguish the differences between the two models and you would have to take a closer look. This article briefly looks at how the two models compare.

Design and Display

When it comes to design and display, the Series 7 is based on a square, but if you take a closer look, it’s more rounded at the corners in comparison to the Series 6. The most interesting part is that unless you’re wearing them together, it is very hard to notice the difference.

The main difference between the two models is the Series 7’s larger display. If you’re curious about the Series 7 sizes, it’s available in 41mm and 45mm sizes while the Series 6’s are available in 40mm and 44mm. 

Both Series have always been on displays, but the Series 7 is relatively brighter (70 percent) indoors, says Apple. If you’re interested in Apple Watch with a larger screen, Series 7 is the best choice for you.

Durability

It’s almost impossible to complete a review of any product without considering its durability. When it comes to durability, Series 7 wins on this front because it features a thicker front crystal display that makes it solid. In other words, it is more resistant to scratch and crack-resistant compared to the Series 6. The Series 7 has been accredited at IP6X as dust-tight resistance, while this is not the case with Series 6.

Face and Features

Both watches run watch0S8, however, the Series 7’s screen makes a distinct difference across the interface. Let me explain. Apple altered watchOS to leverage the larger display meaning it now has a full keyboard for texts as well as typing. This is something you wouldn’t find on Series 6. Another thing that is worth mentioning is that buttons are larger in multiple of not all Apple’s apps, hence the ease to tap. 

Looking at the Series 7, this watch has two unique watch faces namely; Contour and Modular Duo. 

So, if you’re considering this feature to decide whether to buy the Series 7, then it is worth considering. Although the difference may be small the Contour face is fascinating.

We all know that the Apple Watch is all about class, style, and personal taste. You should therefore go for a model that reflects your personality. However, if you’re interested in a green watch or the new Starlight color, then you’ve only one choice, the Series 7.

Performance

As Apple enthusiast our views on their products especially Apple Watches hasn’t changed. I believe the Apple Watch, as we await the Series 8 will feel like a revelation. The Series 7 is plenty fast and powerful. However, there is one undeniable fact, Apple hasn’t updated the processor in a new model. Therefore, if you’re looking for 5G, you will have no choice but to wait for the launch of the Series 8.

Battery and charging

This is a very important feature because you don’t want a Watch that has limited battery life. Good news…The Series 7 Apple Watch has about 18-hour battery life. I believe this is enough to get you through the day, however, if you want to extend use (i.e., sleep tracking) you may have to charge the watch. 

That’s where Series 7 comes in. The Series 7 supports fast charging via a new cable, which is said to charge 33 percent faster compared to the Series 6. According to Apple, you only need to charge the watch for eight minutes to cover eight hours of sleep tracking.
