The Apple Watch Series 7 is going up a notch in the size department relative to the Series 6.
The Series 7 comes in 41mm and 45mm sizes, a move to expand size Apple Watch hasn’t seen since 2018’s Series 4.
The new displays are up to 20% larger than the Series 6 and 50% larger than the entry-level Series 3.
This will allow for bigger buttons and new features like a full standard QWERTY keyboard.
