In addition to the iPhone 13 series, Apple also presents their latest smartwatch, namely the Apple Watch Series 7. Jeff Williams, Chief Operating Officer at Apple said that the increase in the Apple Watch Series 7 was quite significant. “Powered by watchOS 8, this device brings useful new capabilities to help customers stay connected. Track their activity & exercise, and better understand their overall health & fitness.”
In terms of features, Apple’s latest smartwatch is still more or less the same as the previous generation. At least in terms of health and fitness features, as improvements are carried over from the new OS that also came to the previous generation.
Has USB-C Based Fast Charging Technology
This device has the same battery life as the previous generation, which is around 18 hours. The difference is, now users can charge up to 33% faster thanks to the support of new technology and USB-C-based chargers. Users can charge up to 80% in just 45 minutes. While charging 5 minutes is enough to detect the quality of sleep overnight.
With a new algorithm, this device will be able to detect the user’s movement when starting cycling, sports, until an accidental fall. Complete with SpO2 & ECG sensors of course.
Apple Watch Series 7 Has IP6X Certification
At first glance, it seems that in terms of design there is nothing different from the previous generation. In this generation, Apple only provides minor improvements. Provides a new case color choice with a green flagship color.
This Apple Watch has a glass front made of Crystal that has been strengthened more than 50% thicker to make it more resistant to shattering. In addition to being waterproof to the standard WR50, this smartwatch also has an IP6X dust-proof certification. So it is safe for use scenarios on the beach and desert. On the screen, it can be seen that although the dimensions are the same, the screen is bigger. That’s because the bezels are 40% thinner. So that the screen for each dimension is now almost 20% larger. In addition, the always-on display is also made 70% brighter.
Not only that, but users can also take advantage of the new virtual keyboard to reply to incoming messages. Either by tap or swipe. There are also two new watch faces that take advantage of thin bezels for an elegant look. If you’re interested in owning one, the Apple Watch Series 7 retails for $399.
