    I am relieved that the Series 7 won’t have the flat edge design like the phones. I was planning on getting a second Series 6 if the 7 had the flat edges.

    I also agree!!! I was intrigued by the idea of flat edges, but I am so happy they didn't go in that direction!

    70% brighter screen when your wrist is at rest?

    That tells me more battery use.

    Agreed. I am relieved and looking forward to a more durable watch and screen glass.

    Add: and the new colors! I think I will like the green or starlight.

    I’m probably in the minority, but I actually liked the look of the squared sides to match my 12 Pro Max. The S7 hasn’t intrigued me, so I’m sticking with my S4 for another year.

    I agree. Didn’t care for the flat edges. I’m sticking with my Series 5 for another year.

    Not much excited that they didn’t go with the flat edges but I am excited for the new watch OS

    Or a more efficient processor and display panel that can do that while using the same amount of battery as before.

    Wishful thinking, but we’ll see.

    We know now that the processor is the same, so I’m banking on a slightly larger battery and a more efficient display panel.

    Here’s hoping that someday Apple decides to prioritize battery life over increased functionality though.

    I'm the opposite. I wanted the flat sides to match the phone.

    What's more disappointing about the design is that the Series 7 will have the exact same processor as the Series 6, same battery life, and no new health sensors. Which brings up the question "why upgrade?".

    Really nobody with last year's watch ever needs to upgrade IMO. The question is will this be a worthwhile upgrade from the S3 (definitely), S4 (almost surely), or S5 (not unless you really need to.)

    I agree! I’ve never considered upgrading my Series 3 until now!

    I would put the Series 5 in the “do not need to upgrade” category…

    I agree with this! Love they kept the rounded edges & the added features and screen real estate will be a nice little upgrade from my S4. The S4 will be my workout watch, Hermès S7 will be the daily. I’m kind of excited to upgrade!

    That seems to be the consensus all over.

    Well, as I said in another thread, my S5 is starting to be battery-challenged. I definitely cannot get through a day without charging at some point during the day. If it starts being “I can’t get through a day without charging a couple of times”, it’ll be time for me to upgrade.

    Not now, though. If the S5 was new, nope.

    I’m actually glad they didn’t go for the square design. It would look too blocky, in my opinion. I have the Series 5 and was thinking of upgrading to the Series 7, but won’t now. If anything I might get the Series 6 since the processor is exactly the same as the 7 with no new health features, and I don’t care too much about the expanded display. Battery life is identical, too.

    Other than the new display and tougher screen, what’s the difference?

    Disappointing upgrade.
