Last Tuesday the Apple Watch Series 7 was presented, among other devices. Of course, this new generation of the Cupertino smartwatch is not yet available due to a possible stock problem due to the driver crisis that is being experienced in the city. industry. However, we can already know enough information about them, such as their compatibility of straps, something to keep in mind if you want to buy this device and get other straps later.
Yes, the usual straps will do
We already have an extensive catalog of Apple Watch compatible straps and we speak in general without saying the series because they all work for everyone. The new watches offer two new screen sizes that were already rumored and have been confirmed by the iOS 15 code, being 41 and 45 mm. Nevertheless they keep the same body and therefore the same straps serve.
According to some leaks that have ended up being false (or ahead of the Series 8), it was said that the new Apple watch would incorporate a new form factor with flat edges in the purest iPhone style. However, at the design level, we continue to find a body identical to that of previous versions, since only the screen size has changed, which now extends to the edges of the watch, leaving a much more functional front and with which new dials will also arrive. can make the most of it.
So what sizes can we find?
As we said before, the size of the watches is divided into 2, the small format (38, 40 and 41 millimeters) and the large one (42, 44 and 45 millimeters). However these sizes are equivalent to each other. Therefore, if you buy a 38 millimeter strap (for example), it could also be used for 40 and 41 millimeters.
We remember that the sizes in which each watch is available are these:
- Apple Watch (original): 38 and 42 mm
- Apple Watch Series 1: 38 and 42 mm
- Apple Watch Series 2: 38 and 42 mm
- Apple Watch Series 3: 38 and 42 mm
- Apple Watch Series 4: 40 and 44 mm
- Apple Watch Series 5: 40 and 44 mm
- Apple Watch Series 6: 40 and 44 mm
- Apple Watch SE: 40 and 44 mm
- Apple Watch Series 7: 41 and 45 mm
So if you are one of those who is going to buy one of these new Apple Watch when they go on the market and you already had another, you should know that the straps you already used could be useful. And even if this is going to be your first Watch, you will be able to find a multitude of options in the market that, regardless of the standard they set, will serve you. Of course, keep in mind the important division, which is that of “small” and “large”, since what will never be compatible are those of 38, 40 and 41 millimeters with those of 42, 44 and 45.
