Apple today announced the Apple Watch Series 7, which features a display with 20% more screen area, in roughly the same size case as previous models. The bezels are now just 1.7mm wide. Apple has tweaked watchOS to take advantage of the larger display, including a new full QWERTY keyboard option for text input, with swipe typing. The new display also fits up to 50% more text, and key buttons have been enlarged. A new modular face fits more, larger complications. The new display is also 70% brighter in idle/always-on mode indoors. The redesigned case has more rounded cover glass (that's more durable) and corners, but still fits all existing interchangeable bands. The new watch also charges 33% faster. New cycling features in watchOS 8 improve Outdoor Cycle workout mode with automatic start, pause, and resume, and now track workouts accurately with e-bikes. There's also a new Fall Detection feature for cycling. Apple Watch Series 7 will come in titanium (2 colors), stainless steel (2 colors) and recycled aluminum (5 colors). It will be available "later this fall" starting at $399. Series 7 replaces Series 6; Series 3 and Apple Watch SE will continue to be available.

Was really wanting to buy the 7 Series......

It would have been my first Apple Watch. I'm going to pass on the 7 Series. I'm very disappointed, there is not enough meat on that bone. I'll look forward to bigger changes on the Series 8.
I will roll over my 12 Pro-Max and get the 13. I'm disappointed with this too. However 120 refresh and a bigger battery and a new color will get me to make the upgrade. I plug and unplug a lot so a second year may weaken my phone battery and the trade in allowance is much better the sooner the upgrade. That's how I'm justifying spending $$$.
