With features like a bigger screen and faster charging, Apple’s Watch Series 7 is a great gift idea — but the $399 price tag could be hard to swallow. However, you can now pick up the 41mm model (in green only) at a new all-time low of $339 at Amazon, for a savings of $60 or 15 percent off.
The Watch Series 7 brings a subtle new design with a larger screen that makes a big difference for readability and control. It’s more sporty thanks to new IP6X dust-resistance and improved crack-resistance, and offers faster charging if you tend to use it a lot — even for sleep tracking. As with past models, you get a strong watchOS 8 app ecosystem and solid health features like sleep-tracking and ECG measurements.
It can also monitor your respiration rate while you sleep, and it comes with exclusive watch faces, larger font sizes/buttons and a Qwerty keyboard. The main drawback is with the sleep tracking. Unlike devices from Fitbit and Samsung, the Watch Series 7 can’t detect what sleep zone you’re in, for one thing. And it won’t detect when you’ve fallen asleep, so you’ll need to make sure you have the Sleep Focus mode to log your slumber.
Still, Apple’s Watch is the best selling smartwatch by far for good reason, and as the latest model, the Series 7 is the benchmark. With $60 off the price, there’s never been a better time to get one.
