We may be only about one month away from Apple possibly announcing the next generation of its smartwatch which means the current watches will have a price cut. You can now get a Series 7 for less on Amazon. The online retailer has knocked down the prices of the 41mm and 45mm GPS Product Red versions of the Watch to USD$290 and USD$320 respectively.
Apple has consistently made its watches better with each iteration, and the Series 7 is no exception. It wasn’t a massive departure from the Series 6 that came before it, but the company did make some important improvements.
The Series 7 has a larger screen, making it easier to read the text and even type out messages on its display. While its design is mostly the same as its predecessor, the Series 7 became the first Apple Watch with an IP6X dust resistance rating, making it the most durable version of the Apple Watch to date.
Apple also sped up the charging time on this Watch, allowing you to get a 10% boost in battery life in only 10 minutes of charging.
Otherwise, Apple brought over all of the excellent features found in the Series 6 to the Series 7. The smartwatch has a built-in GPS, heart rate monitor, ECG tool, and blood oxygen monitor, plus features like fall detection and Emergency SOS.
The biggest gripe with it is its lackluster sleep tracking — the watch focuses on telling the user how long they slept and not much else, which is much less data than you’ll get from a competing Fitbit or Garmin device.
Despite that, it is still considered to be the best smartwatch you can get right now.
But if you want the latest and greatest from Apple, you may be better off waiting until next month when it’s very likely the company will announce the next version of the Watch.
