Turns out these rates had been appropriate which means the Apple Watch Series 7 certainly begins at Rs 41,990—same as the Series 6. This is for the 41mm aluminum version with Wi-Fi.

The Series 7 delivers “nearly 20 percent more screen area and thinner borders at just 1.7 mm,” according to Apple. Moreover, the Always-On Retina show is now “up to 70 percent brighter indoors than that of Apple Watch Series 6.”
Elsewhere, the watch is more crack-resistant when compared with the Apple Watch Series 6. It is also rated IP6X for dust-resistance in addition to becoming swim-proof with a water resistance rating of WR50.

It is additional rated to provide up to 18-hour battery life and can supposedly charge up to 33 % quicker compared with its predecessor.
