The wait for Apple Watch Series 7 is finally over, with preorders live on and through the Apple Store app. Prices start at $399 for a 41mm model and $429 for a 45mm model. They rise to $499 for LTE connectivity.

Series 7 ships with Apple Watch’s largest screens, a more durable design, and faster charging. It’s also available in a range of new color options. Initial supplies are expected to be limited, so bag yours before shipping dates slip.

Apple Watch Series 7 available now

Apple Watch Series 7 “represents our biggest and brightest thinking yet,” Apple says. In many ways, it is identical to Apple Watch Series 6, with the same chipset, health sensors, and physical design. But there are reasons to upgrade.

Thanks to its larger screens, which now come in 41mm and 45mm sizes — up from 40mm and 44mm — Apple Watch 7 allows you to see more than ever on your wrist. It even has a qwerty keyboard that lets you quickly reply to texts.

Apple has added a couple of new watch faces that take advantage of the extra space, which you cannot get on older Apple Watch models. And it promises that Series 7 is its most durable Apple Watch to date, with a stronger cover crystal.

Apple Watch 7 also charges up to 33% faster than its predecessor, so you’ll get a lot more juice during morning top-ups.

Preorder Apple Watch Series 7

You can preorder your Apple Watch Series 7 now from or through the Apple Store app. Prices start at $399, and the device is scheduled to arrive next Friday, October 15 — at which point it will also be available for in-store pickup.

Apple Watch 7 is also available in stainless steel and titanium, with prices starting at $699 and $799, respectively. It launches first in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia, and more than 50 other countries around the world.

Recent rumors have suggested that Apple Watch 7 supples will be limited at first, thanks to apparent production complications. So, if you want to ensure you get yours on launch day, you’ll need to preorder quickly.
