Apple’s new-generation wristwatch, the Watch Series 7, has yet to be released in India, but thanks to Flipkart, we now know how much one of the versions will cost.
According to Flipkart, the wearable would cost Rs. 41,990 for the 41mm Aluminium GPS-only form and Rs. 73,900 for the top model.
The new model features a 20% increase in screen real estate
The Apple Watch Series 7 appears identical to the Series 6, but the bezels are 1.7mm thinner, allowing for 20% more screen space.
A “crack-resistant” wrap-around crystal, softer side edges, and WR50 water resistance are also included.
The wearable is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes and features a redesigned Retina screen that is up to 70% brighter inside.
The wearable allows you to do an ECG
The Apple Watch Series 7 is capable of detecting atrial fibrillation (AFib) and generating an electrocardiogram (ECG). It also has an electronic heart rate sensor for measuring heart rate, SpO2 monitoring, and improved sleep tracking.
Apple has provided two special watch faces, Modular Duo and Contour, to suit the new wrap-around design. When the wrist is lifted, they animate dynamically.
It is powered by the watchOS 8 operating system
The new Apple Watch Series 7 can last up to 18 hours on a single charge and enables 33 percent quicker charging, according to Apple. The wearable receives a redesigned QWERTY keyboard with a swipe feature and watchOS 8, which comes with a new “Mindfulness” app preinstalled.
Pricing and availability for the Apple Watch Series 7
The Apple Watch Series 7 will be available in India for Rs. 41,990 for the 41mm Aluminium GPS-only option and Rs. 73,900 for the top-tier 45mm device with a Stainless Steel casing and cellular connectivity.
While Apple has yet to formally disclose the watch’s pricing, the company’s India page indicates that the wearable will be available “later this year.”
