Several major retailers seem to be clearing out their inventories ahead of this fall’s new Apple Watch (Pro? Series 8?) release.
As of Aug. 2, the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 with GPS has made a quick return to its all-time low Prime Day price at Amazon(opens in a new tab) and Walmart(opens in a new tab). (Hope you like the green case/clover sport band combo, because that’s the only colorway they’ve discounted to this degree.) Apple usually sells it for $399, so you’ll pocket a 30% savings.
The best fitness trackers for keeping up with your goals
A quick aside in case you’re in the market for a new pair of wireless earbuds, too: Amazon was randomly giving customers 20% off last year’s Beats Studio Buds(opens in a new tab) or Beats Fit Pro(opens in a new tab) with an Apple Watch Series 7 purchase at the time of writing. Both are winners of our Mashable’s Choice Award, so you can’t go wrong.
Apple’s most notable upgrades to last year’s Series 7 were primarily cosmetic. Compared to the Series 6 from 2020, it’s got a bigger, curvier, and more durable watch face screen, with room for a full keyboard, more text, and larger buttons. Its 18-hour battery life carried over from the previous generation, though it did get new USB-C “charging architecture” that allows it to juice up 33 percent faster.
Features-wise, increased workout support for biking and e-biking (including fall detection) joined the Series 7’s suite of health tools. That further includes a Mindfulness app, a heart sensor, a blood oxygen sensor, an always-on altimeter, and an Emergency SOS function.
