In a new video shared on its official YouTube channel, Apple promotes the rock-solid durability of its latest high-end smartwatch. In particular, we can discover how the device can cope with theimmersion when a child drops it in the toilet, or how the glass screen takes shocks without flinching while playing sports.
As a reminder, the Apple Watch Series 7 is to date the best wearable offered by Apple with a choice of 41 or 45 mm case. The sealing is supported up to fifty meters deep, with also an IP6X certification in order to combat dust attacks. As for the price, it starts at 429 euros in the basic version against 529 euros with cellular data in addition to GPS.
A historical supplier behind the success of the Series 7
If the screen of the Apple Watch Series 7 is so solid, it is also because its glass is designed in collaboration with the manufacturer Corning. Its Gorilla Glass Victus technology, which also protects the front of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, is internationally recognized when it comes to defending touch displays against attacks.
These are numerous; from falls to unfortunate encounters with a bunch of keys. A small device of this size must therefore use the best in terms of panel. Especially when you know that the price to repair this component is very high in the Apple Store: count in particular several hundred euros on tablet or mobile.
The Series 8 extreme
Today, it is therefore the Apple Watch Series 7 which is the most robust at the apple brand. But serious rumors published in recent months suggest that the company wants to develop a version even more resistant of that which will succeed it, namely the supposed Series 8. Perhaps for sliding sports.
Several well-known analysts have already discussed the subject, including Mark Gurman from home Bloomberg. The journalist is also betting on a sensor to measure blood glucose levels, which could greatly help diabetes patients.
