Apple has failed to specify the display sizes of the Watch Series 7. Nevertheless, the Watch 7 has a larger screen-to-body ratio and the company claims it’s 20% wider than the Series 6 and 50% wider than the Series 3. If our calculations are correct, it means that the Watch 7 41mm has a display size of 2 inches approx, while 45mm has a display size of 2.1 inches approx.
LTPO OLED still powers the display of Watch 7 which Apple claims is brighter than older models. The Watch 7 still has the iconic digital rotating crown button with a haptic feedback mechanism and a side button.
