Apple is all set to release its new Apple Watch Series 7 and this Friday 20 minutesWho should try! After his new iPads, his
IPhone 13, And before the announcement of the new computers on October 19, The
Apple mark follows his schedule like a metronome with a
Attached clock Always very efficient. But it is no different.
Screen: More ergonomics thanks for the excellent display
The first surprise is that the OLED screen of the new Apple Watch Series 7 does not change shape, but looks bigger. Apple claims a 20% increase in display area without increasing the size of the case. This can be seen with the naked eye: the screen of the token that binds the borders is slightly curved and is now with almost lost edges.
The manufacturer used the opportunity to improve the usability of the watch using new dials. The providers of different “problems” (level of operation, a compass, UV level, etc.) are actually quite clear.
We especially appreciate the excellent facility provided when displaying messages and the possibility of increasing the size of the text. In short, we get in the work environment.
Resistance: Ideal for attached watches
Apparently wanting to be irresistible in its token resistance, Apple is proud to offer its Watch Series 7 with a beeper screen, 50% thick with a glass. The hammer blows we scored (moderate, but firm) did not scratch or crack on the screen of our watch. It will no doubt take the biggest shock to be damaged.
So the watch will withstand the fall, especially for gaming use. Still waterproof (up to 50 meters), the Apple Watch is now resistant to dust (IP6X standard), a defect suffered by its adults. In this area, it is the most complete attached clock.
Game: The little queen of Tokontes climbs the saddle
Thanks to the Watch OS 8 operating system, new algorithms are equipping the Apple Watch for cycling. We tested them. Note: There is no need to launch the Sport application and select “Bike” on the watch screen.
After just 200 meters, the clock only detects the activity and starts its calculations (distance, speed, altitude difference, heart rate, etc.). Interesting point: each marked stop, albeit short, is now detected and calculated against the final score.
Recorded shows get accurate. In short, we enjoyed cycling.
Health: Flat encephalogram for news
Where Series 6 has new sensors attached to measure the level of oxygen in the blood or to do electrocardiograms, this Series 7 is not innovative in terms of health. During a bike ride, when you fall victim to more than a minute and lie motionless, she cannot alert you to emergency services. In short, this is not already bad.
Mediation: Zen, let us be (almost) Zen!
With the Mindfulness app, Apple is taking its new watch one step further. In addition to the already known “Breathe” function, the Apple brand adds short meditation sessions. It’s like: “Think of someone important to you. Imagine that you can feel the connection you have with her. By pressing” Start “, the watch screen moves and fills with calm colors.
We’ve done this exercise many times, but the size of the image we need to fix in a minute is really small, so we can really sink into the bubble of well-being … in short, we’ve finished sending WhatsApp to the loved one to fill in the blanks.
Autonomy: Not more than a day yet
As we have seen, the autonomy of the Apple Watch Series 7 does not change. If officially set to 18 hours of use, unfortunately it cannot be violated. If you use your GPS for a game activity, you should not believe that you will reach this period. If previously there was no other option but to charge your watch overnight, the Series 7 comes with an induction charger, which offers 33% faster charging time. Yes, Apple wants precision.
In fact, the watch can recover 97% autonomy (up to 85% against Series 6) on its one-hour charging. Briefly below, it is symbolic, but practical.
Our verdict: A good update
With no change in design (not yet predicted), the new Apple Watch Series 7 is quietly evolving but its manufacturer is still at its peak. For now, its autonomous increase (although expected) is not on the agenda. In short, owners of older versions of the attached watch may consider getting it based on improved ergonomics and resistance. Wearers of the Apple Watch Series 6, which launched a year ago on the wrist, do not need to change it.
