Apple Watch Series 7: Should you upgrade?

    She said to wait for the full review lol. It the same Apple watch with a bigger screen and more durable. That’s it. Well, finally multiple timers in 2021 lol. Oh what android users take for granted

    This is nice watch but not sure the price difference if it’s worth it though.

    I’ll be keeping my series 5 until something more innovating occurs with the next model.

    The 5 to the 7 is a good move. 👍 SO2, altimeter, quick charge and bigger always on display. If you got the $145 trade-in from Apple it’s a great deal.

    Very good video. I’ve never had an Apple Watch and don’t want to get one but videos like these convince me that getting one would be a positive.

    CNET production value has become more basic than a Target sale

      The Verge reviews look like a Hollywood movie while CNET reviews have become America’s funniest home videos of the 90’s

      @Peter B Which is why we still come haha, don’t see target going out of business

    I have a series 4 and was expecting more from this watch. Also upset that they removed the silver from the base aluminum lineup and replaced it with “starlight” which has a hint of gold. Plus the change in price to the stainless steel model From 399 to 750 (to get a more normal and classy colored watch) is kind of a unjustifiable jump in my opinion. At least in the price difference for iPhones you get extra features when going from a regular to a pro. No way I’m paying 350 more for material and color difference🥴.

    Iphone 13 almost identical to the 11 and especially the 12, barley deserves and ‘S’ let alone a 13.
    Apple watch 7 IDENTICAL to the 6.
    Apple fan boys lose their fkn minds lol.
    The indoctrination is severe, it’s a cult/religion at this point.

    I don’t have any Apple Watch but planning to get one – should I get the 7?

      October 14, 2021 at 1:21 am

      I hear the Series 9 is the one you want!

  23. XxMsrSzprzxX

    October 13, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    I have no idea how CNET still make videos and even less of an idea how or why Apple think they’re worthy of receiving demo units of new products. Truly baffling.

    Is this the 41mm or the 45mm?

    What about the series 4? You totally glossed over it at the start of the video! :O

    I went for the SE. I Don’t need the EKG or Pulse Oximeter (Which is significantly less accurate than a fingertip unit. This is my first watch. The seven is a kludge to fit the larger display and required glass into a six case. On a two-year plan, my SE is a full thirty percent less expensive. So in two years when I have paid for this the Series 8 should be out or even the Nine!

    If the series 7 is louder for non ear buds calls I with that alone will upgrade.

    The color options on the entry-level are disappointing.

  47. Lemon Pepper Chicken Steven

    I had to upgrade to the series 7 because everyone at work would make fun of me, if I was still wearing the series 6 past Oct 15.

    I’d bet that most people with a series 3 Apple Watch in 2021 and skip the 4,5, and 6 don’t really care about a bigger screen..LOL!

  56. Jacky Haruhiko

    The Series 7 is nearly identical to the Series 6. And I have a hard time distinguishing one from the other even if they are put side by side in your video.

    I don’t know if I wanna upgrade yet. I have SE 44mm and if I did upgrade, it would be the 45mm, but I’m worried my straps won’t fit the 45mm, I paid a lot for them too.

    I know some people are making fun of her, but it is her first time I think actually, so I am sure it was a little nerve racking to be talking to millions of people for the first time. Good job to her!!! I did a presentation today at university and I was scared out of my pants so she acted much better than me in a more nerve racking situation.

    Can you use Capacitive Stylus Pens with Rubber tips with the watch keyboard ?

      My watch 6 does monitor continuously, so i think the watch 7 would too

    Very poor start to the video – don’t update if you have a series 5 or 6, upgrade if you have a series 3…..???!!!!! Wtf 🤬 didn’t you know series 4 was the one with the new design after the original series 0! Very poorly written script. CNET has still not recovered from the hit of loosing Brian Tong! Booooo…
