    Newest Apple Watch Series 7 Is Now Available for Preorder

    Announced earlier this month alongside the new iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7 is now available to preorder.

    Apple Watch Series 7 Preorder

    Starting at $399, the Apple Watch Series 7 comes out October 15, which is next week, and you can ensure your get your hands on one, or rather, one around your wrist, by preordering now.

    Apple Watch Series 7 Features

    The Apple Watch Series 7 was revealed during last month’s September Apple Event, with the most obvious improvement coming via a larger screen. The Apple Watch Series 7 has a 20% larger screen than its predecessor, and can now fit an entire touch-sensitive keyboard on the watch face itself. The watches come in 41mm and 45mm sizes, a slight increase over the Apple Watch Series 6.

    The display on the Apple Watch Series 7 is always-on, and promises to be 20% brighter than the previous Apple Watch. In spite of increased brightness, the Series 7 claims the same 18 hours of battery life, as well as “33% faster charging” than the Series 6.

    There’s a Blood Oxygen and ECG app standard with the Apple Watch Series 7, “High and low heart rate notifications” and “Irregular heart rhythm notifications,” according to the official Apple Watch Series 7 website.

    There’s quite a lot to like about the new Apple Watch Series 7 and I’m considering ordering one for myself, because I like watches and haven’t yet equipped myself with a cool and trendy smart watch. There are a lot more features, like increased scratch and water resistance, that make it appealing.

    Apple iPad Air Deals: Save on 2020 Model iPad Air at Amazon Right Now

    If you’re looking to pick up an iPad Air for someone for the upcoming holiday gift-giving season I recommend checking out these iPad deals at Amazon going on right now. If you want to get one for yourself, I’m not here to judge. I have a regular ol’ iPad and I love it a lot more than I thought I would. It’s largely replaced my laptop, and being able to use the Apple Pencil with it is great.

    Apple iPad Deals

    Both the 64 and 256GB iPad Air are on sale, but the 64GB version is the better deal in terms of relative savings. Both are still pretty excellent, although I wish there were more color options available for the 64GB version.

    This is one of Amazon’s “Epic Daily Deals,” so the prices are only good for today. However, the Apple AirPod deals on regular, Pro and Max AirPods are still live and have been all week.
