The Series 7 wasn’t a huge update to the Series 6, but there are some nice improvements. Chief among these is a larger screen that makes it easier to see notifications, messages, and other information displayed in the event of complications. It’s also the first IP6X dust-resistant Apple Watch, so it’s more durable than previous models. And it supports fast charging, so you can get 10 percent power in just 10 minutes and be fully charged in less than an hour.

Other capabilities are inherited from the Series 6, such as the always-on display, built-in GPS, ECG and blood oxygen measurement capabilities, fall detection, trackable training support and more. The current model’s biggest drawback is mediocre sleep tracking — it only tells you how long you’ve slept, which is far less information than you’ll get from competing Fitbit or Garmin devices. It’s not a great idea for Android users either, but if you’re using an iPhone, Apple Watch is still by far the best wearable out there.
