Introducing Apple Watch Series 7, Bring your adventurous side to the front Soon after the announcement by Apple about its Apple Watch release, Apple upgraded its watches and thus gave an opportunity to Smartwatch makers to improve their wearable gadgets as well.
Apple watches series 7 is a similar effort in this regard and Apple has come back with a really cool smartwatch achieving the number one position in the smartwatches market leaving behind the Galaxy watch 4 and Fitbit charge 5.
We earlier reviewed the Fitbit Charge 5 (A Powerful Activity tracker and smartwatch which is a fitness watch with the best features on it. But Fitbit Charge 5 is not a 100% smartwatch.
Apple watch series 7 instead is a 100% fitness smartwatch with curve edges and a larger screen display. We will compare these two smartwatches and the others as well in detail but the durable glass screen, midnight aluminium case along with the sport band on Apple Watch 7 gives it a distinguished look, making it ‘rock solid’ and perfect for adventurers.
Apple has introduced its Apple watch series 7 at the price of US$399. At this price certainly, this smartwatch is certainly not as cheap as compared to Galaxy watch 4 and Fitbit charge 5.
One of the many reasons behind the high prices for smartwatches is their being in stages of evolution and the companies making them are putting a large amount of cash at risk.

Apple Watch Series 7
Apple Watch Series 7 with a midnight sport band
The Apple Watch Series 7 is released on October 15, 2021, almost 10 months ago. You will find an aluminium bezel around the display with clock markings that reminds us of the actual purpose of the watches i.e. Timekeeping and give it a nice look.
It is made of an Aluminium case along with various sports bands, the Apple watch series 7 has a home button right side to initiate different functions. Without using this button you will not find any major difference between the traditional watches and this cool smartwatch. Comparing the Apple Watch 7 to other Watches, it has more potential and is more stylish and fashion-oriented with a focus on the latest wearable technology.
Despite the Galaxy watch 4 appeals to me more while talking of the design and has many beautiful looks, I will go for Apple watch 7 because of its completeness and because of the ‘call for adventure’ appeal in it. It is not only the demonstration of OS Wear but a more refined product as compared to other rectangle-shaped smartwatches.
Although Apple Watch 7 has a microphone for voice commands it lacks speakers which is a shame for such a classy smartwatch because without speakers you cannot make and receive calls with it. The heartbeat sensor is at the back as usual and it is WR50waterproof as well.

It has a larger, Always on-Retina display with a 45mm diameter which is slightly larger as compared to the 40mm diameter of the Apple Watch 6.
The Apple watch comes with a resolution of 352 x 430 pixels(41mm) and 396×484 pixels (945mm) which are higher than of Apple watch series 6 which is 324×394 pixels(40mm) and 368x448pixels(44mm).
The Analogue features a clock to check the time and it works nicely in direct sunlight with the lowest brightness settings as well.
The watch is durable as it has a glass screen and no need for any screen protector.
Can you FaceTime on your Apple Watch?
Apple Watch Series 7 comes with multiple watch faces and has just recently introduced new watch faces as well. You will find the default watch face on your Watch 7.
One of the unique features of the Apple Watch 7 is the qwerty keyboard for writing text messages and this is really helpful and even predictable in what you want to type.
Assistive touch option
Moreover, by rotating and clenching your hand twice, you can use or navigate your watch without any touch. But for this, you need to toggle on the assistive touch option in the watch settings under accessibility. Once assistive touch gets access you can clench twice to navigate your whole watch.
Unlock your iPhone or IMac with Apple watch series 7 by keeping your face mask on and enabled on your iPhone and IMac.
You will get additional features in these faces like the world clock allows you to display the time of two additional time zones you set and the fitness face will show your step count as well. Likewise, the hiking face has a compass as well which works quite nice if calibrated perfectly.

Can you text on an Apple Watch?
Calls and text messages
you can call and text messages through your watch 7 easily and stay connected with your friends and family.
You can send or pay money with apple pay and run music (Spotify) at your airport.
The voice commands work very well and it gives you astonishing results sometimes for passive inquires. Like it will tell you the weather when you ask about having a jacket with you instead of asking about the weather directly.
You need to tap the watch face or say ‘OK Siri’ to wake the watch and voice commands will help you perform routine tasks. Although it takes too long sometimes to wake up and respond.
You get a notification on the screen in case of any update is available. Likewise, in the setting section, you can adjust the brightness, restart and reset the watch as well. It is the Start menu which brings all the apps installed on it to you.
The voice commands are helpful while your hands are busy like if you are driving or carrying something other than it, ‘talking to wrist’ in public places is not an idea which has been accepted yet.
The Apple Watch 7 has a GPS tracking feature.
It comes with an S7, 64-bit dual-core processor, which is 20% more powerful than Apple watch SE,
Battery Life, charging and connectivity of Apple Watch Series 7
One of the major issues with smartwatches is the battery life. There are few smartwatches available right now which provide a decent battery backup right now but Apple Watch Series 7 is exceptional with up to 33% faster charging than the apple watch series 6 and 50% faster than the Apple watch series 3.
give you 2 full days of backup when moderately used and it will not be able to give you more than 2 days of backup if you use it heavily. The voice commands are the worst enemy of battery and drain it too quickly.
The charging method of the Apple watches series 7 is the same as that of the watch series 6 and it comes with a magnetic charger with a USB C cable to the plugin. It will take 1 hour to fully charge your watch. But what makes Apple watch 7 much better in this regard than other smartwatches is the ability to become a bedside alarm clock while charging with displaying a watch face having a dim light.
Overall, we can say Apple Watch 7 is the most durable and crack resistant and we can say with confidence that the LG new smartwatch is the best Android Wear smartwatch available on the market. The black bezel, collection of watch faces and Analogue time display all make it stand confidently.
While talking about the negatives of smartwatches, mostly it is not the hardware which lacks but it is the Android Wear which is still in evolution.
