Apple announced on Tuesday that they will be releasing the Apple Watch Series 7, which introduces five beautiful new aluminum case finishes, along with a range of new band colours and styles. The entire Apple Watch Series 7 lineup will be available on Sept. 27. The new re-engineered display screen with more screen area and thinner watch borders make the Apple Watch Series 7 the largest display yet. Also featured on the watch is the new all-day 18-hour battery life, now with 33 per cent, faster magnetic charging compared to Apple Watch Series 6.

The Apple Watch Series 7 is the most durable Apple Watch ever, with a stronger, crack-resistant front crystal. It is the first Apple Watch to have an IP6X certification, meaning it is dust-tight and is water-resistant to up to 50 metres. This watch will be more durable for runners who run in rough environments such as the beach or desert.
