The IPX6-Certified Series 7 Is Apple’s Toughest, Best Smartwatch Ever

Pretty much since it was first released, the Apple Watch has set the standard in the smart wearables industry. But, unwilling to rest on their laurels, Apple has kept pushing that bar higher and higher with each new release. Well, now the Cupertino brand has outdone themselves with the Apple Watch Series 7.

Coming out of the gate full-speed, the Series 7 is the largest and most advanced Apple Watch ever. In fact, without changing its overall geometry and wearability, it boasts a Liquid Retina display that’s 20% larger than the Series 6 and 1.7mm borders that are 40% smaller, as well. The always-on screen is also 70% brighter indoors than ever before, making discreetly checking the time simpler and more accessible than ever. As if that’s not enough, this is also officially the first-ever Apple Watch with an IPX6 certification, meaning this dust-proof and waterproof smartwatch is also the most durable and tough Apple has ever built. And it still has an all-day 18-hour battery, which can charge up to 80% in 45 minutes, offering 33% faster charging times than ever before. In fact, an 8-minute charge will give you a full 8 hours of sleep tracking, so you don’t have to sit and wait for it to charge before bed. Available in five aluminum, three stainless steel, two titanium, and both Nike and Hermes special editions, the Apple Watch Series 7 will be available this fall starting at $399.
