Apple Watch Series 7 Pre-Orders Start Oct. 8

From PC Mag: When Apple announced its next-generation smartwatch last month, it left out one detail: an availability date. Now, that mystery is solved.

Today, Cupertino announced plans to open pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 7 this Friday, Oct. 8. In-store availability will follow on Friday, Oct. 15.

Starting at $399, the Series 7 offers 20% more screen area than the Series 6 and a 40% slimmer bezel. That equates to a watch with similar dimensions as its predecessor, but more display real estate, Apple says. Its screen is also 70% brighter indoors when your wrist is down, which should come in handy for checking the time.

This is also the first Apple Watch with an IP6X certification, meaning it's now totally dustproof for improved durability.
