You tweak. You make the screen a bit bigger, you make the charger a bit faster and, most of all, you don't really mess with a good thing.

The Apple Watch Series 7 feels more like the "Apple Watch 6S", but it's a big leap if you have an older watch.

GQ

Forget that much-rumoured redesign, the Apple Watch Series 7 has plenty to cement its top smartwatch status, thanks to a larger display and faster charging skills

The Verge

A bigger screen and faster charging are nice, but not reasons to upgrade

WSJ

To put it plainly: The Apple Watch Series 7 is slightly better than its predecessor. There aren't any new health sensors. The price hasn't dropped. And at 18 hours, the watch's daylong battery life is still relatively short.
