The Apple Watch Series 7 is currently on sale for $290
We may be just a month away from the announcement of the next generation of Apple’s smartwatches, but those who want the new wearable now can pick up the Series 7 for less on Amazon. The online retailer has dropped the prices of the 41mm and 45mm GPS Product Red versions of the Watch to $290 and $320, respectively. Both models are on sale, but they also have additional coupons that will automatically apply at checkout to bring those final sale prices down.
Apple has consistently made the Watch better with each iteration, and the Series 7 is no exception. It wasn’t a huge departure from the Series 6 that came before it, but the company has made some significant improvements. The Series 7 has a large screen, making it easy to read text and type messages on its display. Although its design is largely the same as the previous version, the Series 7 is the first Apple Watch with an IP6X dust resistance rating, making it the most durable version of the watch to date. Apple has also extended the charging time on this watch, allowing you to get a 10-percent increase in battery life in just 10 minutes of charging.
Otherwise, Apple carried over all the great features found in the Series 6 to the Series 7. The smartwatch has features like built-in GPS, heart rate monitor, ECG tool and blood oxygen monitor, as well as fall detection and emergency SOS. Our biggest gripe with it is the lackluster sleep tracking — the watch focuses on telling you how long you’ve slept and not much else, which falls far short of the data you’ll get from competing Fitbit or Garmin devices. Despite this, we still consider the Apple Watch to be the best smartwatch you can get right now. But if you want the latest and greatest from Apple, you might be better off waiting until the fall when the company will likely announce the next version of the Watch.
