The Series 7 will have the largest Apple Watch display so far, thanks to its thinner screen borders. It will be available in two sizes with a larger 45mm or smaller 41mm models being released.

Alongside the extra screen size, it will also be the first Apple Watch to have a keyboard, so you can respond to messages among other things.

It also has a stronger, more crack-resistant design, an IP6X certification for resistance to dust.

You can still use the Apple Watch Series 7 to make calls, answer texts and receive alerts from your iPhone as well as usual features including heart and blood oxygen monitoring and fitness tracking.

However Apple hasn’t managed to improve the 18-hour battery life, but it has made charging much faster, with recharging now around 33 percent quicker than before.

Apple Watch deals on Black Friday

If you don’t want the latest model which is priced from £369, then you can get the previous model – the Watch SE – from £249.

This is currently available to buy from Apple. Plus next month will see the day of deals, Black Friday, take place on 26 November.

So if you keep an eye out on the older models you might be able to bag a discounted Apple Watch.

You’re best bet is to bookmark the product page of whichever Apple Watch model you’re after, with the Series 3, Series 5 and SE to choose from.

Retailers including Amazon, Argos and Currys regularly take part in Black Friday sales, so they will be the ones to look out for if you want a discounted Apple Watch.
