The Apple Watch gets a slight visual upgrade with the Series 7

Enlarge

As expected, Apple has announced details about the next version of the Apple Watch. Dubbed the Apple Watch Series 7, it has a new retina display with 20% more screen area, brighter indoor performance, and smaller bezels that are 40% thinner.

Apple says the screen is the most durable "crack resistant" display on an Apple Watch, thanks to "stronger geometry." The Series 7 is also IPX6 dust resistant, a first for Apple Watches, in addition to being water-resistant up to 50 meters. Apple says the bigger display area facilitated the introduction of a full QWERTY keyboard that can be typed or swiped through to enter text. The larger screen also means slightly larger watch cases. Each grew one millimeter from 40 and 44 millimeters on the Series 6 to 41 and 45 millimeters on the Series 7.

There hasn't been much said with regard to new internals. Apple didn't mention a new chip or any other computing components for the watchOS 8 powered device. But there have finally been improvements to charging speeds. With the new USB-C Apple Watch charger, Apple says the Series 7 can charge from zero to 80% in 45 minutes and achieve eight hours of sleep tracking from just an eight-minute charge. Although Series 7's battery charges 33 percent faster than its predecessor, it still has the same 18-hour battery life as the Series 6.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
