    I personally don’t like any of the color of the series 7
    Where’s my space gray and silver ?

    There's something really sketchy how we had all these rumours about a huge redesign, and we got this new Series 7 with barely any new features, and the same processor as the Series 6.

    I have the impression that either Apple is not putting serious effort into designing the Series 7, or taking us Apple customers seriously. Maybe they are thinking that anything by Apple will automatically sell . I have a Series 6 and have been trying to find a compelling reason to 'upgrade'. It has been 11 hours since the announcement and I still can't find any compelling reason. I hate being taken for granted. Meanwhile, Fitbit is trying it's best with the Charge 5. My suggestion to Apple is "When you are Number 1, behave and think like Number 2; it'll keep you competitive.".

    Wanted this to be my first apple watch, sadly apple didn't do enough to make me buy it. Same goes for the iPhone 13 - still no USB-C, no reverse wireless charging, no always on display, no fingerprint onscreen reader. Trust me, I was waiting to buy both since spring 2021. What a disappointment!

      Same here. Apple Watch 7 was supposed to be my first but not anymore. I think we’re all disappointed

    What a huge disappointment: The watch is clearly late because they have had problems, which they don't admit too. They brag about the new display, which, frankly, looks awful compared to the 6 series. Very disappointing, Apple!

    If nothing else they should have made the battery life longer. Charging faster is great, if you have a charger with you or access to one. Strange they didn't at least do that. Though sad also they did not do a major redesign.
    No real improvement over the 6. Can't really think of a reason to upgrade from my series 4 to the series 7.

    Fact:

    ONLY IMBECILES & ZOMBIES buying those devices that has almost NO CHANGES from the past years.
    Haissssst Apple, WAKE UP!
    Have a great day to y'all.

      The iPad mini with iPad Air capabilities was something I've been waiting for long time. And although it's a subtile change, I like the design of the AW 7. Mine is getting too old, but I hated the 'leaked' design with flat edges. So, I'm happy and anything but disappointed with this line up.

      Thinking about it now, I bet next year we get a new design apple watch and then the 7 will start moving down as a second option and the SE will move down to series 3 spot. Which makes the 7 the last of a certain cycle like the 3 was before a bigger overhaul .And the cycle continues 😆.

      @Monochrome I was not condescending. I also know the manufacturing issue, but this is still a small design change. However, I am still disappointed with the design. If you have a series 4 or above, no need to get it.

      @Jerry That ironic because you've been condescending. I and everyone else already know all these and the speculation that there was a manufacturing issue relating to the flat body. A slightly taller, thicker glass, resulting in a sharper curve of the glass that was already curved hardly qualifies as "new design" and more of a necessary adjustment.

      @Monochrome No need to be a toxic dude. There is a difference in the shape of the Apple Watch. It is more round, but it is not much of a difference. They changed the plan last minute. They were supposed to release an iPhone design Apple Watch.

      @Jerry Fix your English dude. There is no change to the design, it's recycled materials and a slightly larger display. Exactly as they advertised, next to no change, and nothing like the leaks suggested.

      Doesn't seem to really be enough difference to worry too much about it. IMO. I have a 4 was really hoping for better battery life, a true redesign. But may look for a 6 when they end up going on sale. Will skip the 7.
