With the apple Watch Series 7, hãng apple has bumped up the size by 1mm on both the smaller and larger models. While the actual physical form size increase may be negligible, the company says that the new flagship wearable has about 20% more screen area than the previous models.


Additionally, the borders on the edges of the táo bị cắn dở Watch Series 7 are just 1.7mm, down from 3mm on the táo apple Watch SE and Series 6.

The táo bị cắn Watch SE is only available in aluminum. The 40mm model weighs 30.8 grams, while the 44mm model weighs 36.5 grams.


The previous model Apple Watch Series 6 was available in aluminum, stainless steel, và titanium cases options. Here"s how the weight breaks down across the case materials.

The táo apple Watch SE and the táo bị cắn Watch Series 6 both have the same display size. They also tóm tắt the same 324 x 394 (368 x 448 for the 44mm model) resolution.

The apple Watch SE packs an S5 chip under the hood with a 64-bit dual-core processor. Performance statistics are hard khổng lồ come by, but hãng apple say it"s up khổng lồ twice as fast as the cpu in the apple Watch Series 3.


Apple"s 2020 táo khuyết Watch Series 6 model packs an updated S6 SiP chip with a similar dual-core processor. Táo khuyết says it"s up to lớn 20% speedier than the chip in the apple Watch Series 5.

The lack of detail about the S7 cpu suggests that the performance benefits aren"t significant.

Automatic cycling detection & improved workout fall detection are not exclusive to lớn the Series 7.

Apple has been steadily increasing the suite of health & fitness features on its watch models, và 2021 is no different. However, the táo apple Watch Series 7 doesn"t appear lớn have any exclusive health or fitness additions.


The táo bị cắn dở Watch SE, in contrast khổng lồ its more expensive counterparts, packs an optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, an always-on altimeter. Unlike the last few generations of flagship wearables, it does not have a blood oxygen sensor or an electrocardiogram.


Both the apple Watch Series 6 & the táo bị cắn dở Watch Series 7 feature blood oxygen sensors and ECG capabilities. They also have the same third-generation optical heart sensor, a step up from the táo apple Watch SE"s second-generation sensor.


New health và fitness features mentioned during the Sept. 14 event, including cycling detection và new workout types, are coming to lớn other apple Watch models with the release of watchOS 8.


Apple hasn"t made significant improvements to the táo Watch"s battery in some years. Case in point: the táo Watch SE, táo bị cắn Watch Series 6, và Apple Watch Series 7 all have the same "all-day battery life" rated lớn last up to lớn 18 hours.

The táo bị cắn Watch Series 6 does feature fast-charging capabilities that allow it lớn hit a 100% charge in about an hour and a half.


Apple has improved the fast-charging ability with the hãng apple Watch Series 7, which can reach up to an 80% charge in about 45 minutes.


The táo bị cắn dở Watch SE, apple Watch Series 6, & Apple Watch Series 7 all sport Bluetooth 5.0 và Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. There"s been no changes there. The táo bị cắn dở Watch SE only supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, while the Series 6 and Series 6 supports 5GHz. The táo apple Watch SE also packs a U1 chip, which its flagship counterparts have.


Both the táo bị cắn Watch SE và the táo khuyết Watch Series 6 are rated at WR50, which means they"re swim-proof.


The táo apple Watch Series 7 is the company"s first khổng lồ have an IP6X dust resistance rating. Hãng apple also says it features the "most crack-resistant front crystal" yet in an táo khuyết Watch. Like its predecessors, it"s also WR50 rated.


Owing lớn its larger display, the táo bị cắn Watch Series 7 also supports a full keyboard that users can tap or slide across. The táo bị cắn dở Watch Series 7"s proprietary charging puck also now features a USB-C connector.

The apple Watch Series 7 is not a major nâng cấp from the Series 6, but it features some minor improvements.

Apple"s Sept. 14 event, with few exceptions, featured almost entirely incremental updates. Compared lớn the iPhone 13 models, the apple Watch Series 7 is even more muted than initially expected.


The slightly larger display và screen area is the most significant update, along with the increased durability, brightness, và charging speeds. Other than those features, not much has changed between the hãng apple Watch Series 6 & Apple Watch Series 7.


In other words, if you already have an táo bị cắn Watch Series 6, then you shouldn"t rush out to upgrade. Even some of the health and fitness features táo bị cắn showed off are coming khổng lồ the táo apple Watch Series 6 via watchOS 8.


Apple Watch SE owners might find the apple Watch Series 7 a compelling nâng cấp with its blood oxygen sensor and ECG capabilities.


The táo apple Watch SE remains a solid entry-level wearable for users who have an older táo khuyết Watch, or those who don"t own an táo bị cắn Watch at all.


As of writing, the táo bị cắn Watch Series 6 is still available lớn order, since the apple Watch Series 7 is coming later in the fall. If you"re eyeing a new apple Watch Series 6 right now, we suggest waiting a bit for the Series 7. It"s the same price, và although its feature might not warrant an upgrade from the Series 6, they"re still worth the additional wait if you"re coming from an older model.


On the táo Watch Series 3: it"s still available, but we don"t recommend it. The hãng apple Watch Series 3 is an aging device, & it shows. More than that, it"s only $80 cheaper than the hãng apple Watch SE. Even if you"re on a budget, we recommend springing for the táo bị cắn dở Watch SE.

I think there is enough improvements from the 6 to the 7 khổng lồ warrant an upgrade, especially if táo bị cắn matches last years trade in value of my current Watch.

Apple Insider also reported that the Series 7 uses the same processor as the series 6:https://forums.myphamlilywhite.com/discussion/223987#first-replyIs the series 6 going to lớn stay on sale? I assumed that it"s going to be replaced by the 7; There"s precious little difference between the two.The last two paragraphs of the story sum things up perfectly. The SE is a great value. Whether the EKG, pulse ox và slightly larger screen are worth an extra $120 is up lớn the buyer.
