Apple Watch 7 preorders began today (October 8) at 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET). The new wearable, which features a bigger display and faster charging, will then hit stores the following Friday, October 15.
The Apple Watch 7 comes in 41mm and 45mm sizes, which is a small departure from its predecessor's 40mm and 45mm sizes. The display borders on the Apple Watch 7 are also noticeably smaller, which makes the Series 7's screen up to 20% larger than the Series 6 and 50% larger than the Series 3. According to Apple, the Series 7 is up to 70% brighter.
In terms of pricing, the Apple Watch 7 starts at $399 for the GPS/41mm model or $429 for the GPS/45mm model. Apple hasn't confirmed pricing for the LTE/41mm model, but it's expected to start at $499, whereas the LTE/45mm model will sell for $529. However there has been a leak that goes into more detail on the pricing of different models if you want to get an idea before the pre-orders open.
