First revealed during the California Streaming event last month, pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 7 are finally open. General availability starts October 15th, which is also when pre-orders will ship … well, your pre-order may ship a bit later if you don’t pre-order fast enough, so don’t wait!
The Apple Watch Series 7 is an incremental upgrade over its predecessor, but if you’re using an older Apple Watch, it’s definitely an enticing product. Its always-on display is 20% larger than what we saw in the Series 6 Watch, and it’s about 50% bigger than the Apple Watch Series 3’s screen.
A larger screen gives the Apple Watch Series 7 a few exclusive features, including a full-sized keyboard, new watch faces, and a modular watch face that shows all of your most important info, including health and fitness metrics, alongside the time.
Available in new 41mm and 45mm sizes, the Apple Watch Series 7 packs a more crack-resistant screen. It’s also the first Apple Watch with an IP6X certification to repel dust and sand, though it has the same WR50 swim-resistance rating as previous models. (Despite the larger sizes, Apple Watch Series 7 works with existing watch bands.)
And like the Series 6 Watch, the new Apple Watch Series 7 packs a ton of sensors to measure your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, and sleep. That said, it doesn’t feature any new sensors, so Series 6 owners should take some time to think before they upgrade.
You can pre-order the new Apple Watch Series 7 at the Apple Store. The new smartwatch starts at $400. If you pre-order a cellular model from Apple or through your carrier (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile), then Apple will send you a $100 rebate for your purchase.
Additionally, Verizon and Best Buy are offering $200 trade-ins for the Apple Watch Series 7. And AT&T will give you a $200 credit if you buy two Apple Watches. Unfortunately, T-Mobile isn’t offering a pre-order deal for this product (though like all carriers, it has financing options).
