Today Apple has announced that Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders begin on Friday, October 8.
Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 during last month’s September event alongside the iPhone 13 and new iPads. The latter products gained pre-order and release dates, but when it comes to the Apple Watch, Apple said that it will be “Available this fall” until now.
Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders to start on October 8 at 5 a.m. PDT, with general availability one week later on October 15.
Apple Watch Series 7 gains a new display, being nearly edge-to-edge, IPX6 water and dust resistance, new colors, 41mm and 45mm sizes. The new watch display features two new watch faces to take advantage of the much larger display. One is a weird watch-face that highlights the bigger display and one modular featuring more info.
Similarities with Series 6 include the same S6 chip and sensors, this means no, this watch didn’t bring a blood pressure sensor. Perhaps Apple is saving this technology to next year.
Apple Watch Series 7 starts at $399, and the whole lineup this year includes Apple Watch Series 3 at $199 and Apple Watch SE for $279.
