Basically, if you're using an older Apple Watch model, the Apple Watch 7 is definitely a worthy upgrade.
If you have workout goals to hit this summer, you'll be able to make great use of Apple Fitness Plus. You get a 3-month membership free with the watch, and you'll be able to take some great video workouts, whether it's cycling, HIIT, or cardio dancing. The Apple Fitness Plus app also tracks your workout stats, and you'll be able to compare your results to those of other users who took the same class. If you want to stick to Apple Fitness Plus once your 3-month trial is up, a subscription costs $9.99/month, which is cheaper than some other popular fitness memberships (like Peloton (opens in new tab), for example.)
The main drawback of the Apple Watch 7 is its 18-hour battery life; the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (opens in new tab), in contrast, can last up to 40 hours. However, that aside, and if you don't mind nightly charging, the Apple Watch 7 is close to a perfect smartwatch for iPhone users.
