We are now just a few days away from the Apple Watch Series 7 for sale with those who were lucky enough to get early pre-orders in sets to receive their watches on Friday. But today it was about the arrival of the early reviews — and even if there were no big surprises, there could still be plenty of reason for people to think new about their new watch.
In the wake of the Series 7 leak disappointment, we already knew that this release would always be about a few minor improvements here and there. The question was whether these improvements overall would be enough to make the Apple Watch Series 7 buy a compelling one. And as many had expected, the reviews suggest that anyone with a late model Apple Watch does not have to rush out to buy this one.

A larger screen and faster charging are nice, but not reasons to upgrade
Fair point. CNET has another: Those with older models will notice the most significant difference. That, of course, makes sense.
The Apple Watch Series 7 feels more like the “Apple Watch 6S”, but it’s a huge leap if you have an older watch.
Again, a bit of this is a massive bomb for anyone who has been paying attention. But that does not mean that people have not placed pre-orders in the hope that there is something more. A hidden gem of a change or improvement that Apple did not call out or might not be fully recognized until it was in the hands of a reviewer. Unfortunately, that does not seem to have been the case here. The Apple Watch Series 7 is the smaller upgrade that we expected it to be, with the possible exception of the larger screen.
I have a 45mm watch on the way this Friday and I’m upgrading from a 44mm Apple Watch Series 7. My only reason for the upgrade – pretty much at least – is the extra screen space that I hope growth will be able to afford : it and the new keyboard situation.
Given the lack of fawning I have seen over the new size increase, I have my concerns. However, I do not want to cancel my order – it’s too late anyway. A little birdie who has spent a few days with one of the new watches tells me that the size difference is noticeable and that it makes everything more comfortable to use at arm’s length distance. It’s enough to keep me fascinated.
Come Friday, I decide. And that’s when I decide what to pack to ship to Apple. My old Apple Watch Series 5, or a shiny new Apple Watch Series 7. The two-year watch, or the best Apple Watch ever made.
When I know myself, I suppose it will be sooner!
