With more rounded corners and a refractive edge, the new Watch offers a display with 20% more screen area than the Apple Watch Series 6 and 50% more screen area than the Apple Watch Series 3 while barely expanding the dimensions of the Watch itself. And just 1.7 mm thin, the wearable device offers borders reduced by 40%. In addition, the Apple Watch Series 7 includes a user interface optimized for the larger display, a new QWERTY keyboard, and two fresh watch faces, Contour and Modular Duo.

Finally, although the new Watch offers the same 18-hour battery life as its predecessor, it charges 33% faster. The aluminum Apple Watch Series 7 version comes in midnight, starlight, green, a new blue, and (PRODUCT)RED.

The Apple Watch Series 7 starts at $399 and will be available through the Apple website, Apple Store app, and Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers. Additionally, customers can buy Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) directly from apple.com/store or at an Apple Store and get $100 back when they activate it with T-Mobile/Sprint or Verizon.
