The first Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders are shipping to customers ahead of its official release on Friday.

Ahead of that release, the first embargoed press reviews of the Apple Watch Series 7 have now been published, offering a closer look at the new 41mm/45mm sizes, the new colors, and more.

TechCrunch writes that if you’re a daily Apple Watch user, you’ll notice the difference in size “immediately,” even though it’s not a “radical departure” from years prior.

If, on the other hand, you’re a daily Apple Watch user, you’ll notice the difference on your wrist immediately.

That represents a 20% increase over the Series 6 and a 50% increase over the Series 3, which somehow manages to keep sticking around.

The Wall Street Journal notes that the incremental improvements do indeed add up, but that the Series 7 is unlikely to convert Apple Watch skeptics:.

The Verge says that while the larger and brighter display is a nice enhancement, it’s not a big enough change to warrant an upgrade for most:.

Apple promises up to 18 hours, and I’ve been getting about that with the Apple Watch Series 7.

CNN Underscored says the brighter display is noticeable, even if the practical implications are minimal:.

Apple claims the Series 7’s display is 70% brighter than the Series 6, and we did notice in side-by-side tests that the Series 7 displayed complications (widgets on the screen like weather or activity) with more clarity.

Apple says they’ve tuned each watch face as well and it really is only noticeable inside.

There are five new colors for the aluminum Apple Watch Series 7.

The Series 7 also has IP6X dust resistance and a front crystal cover that’s more than 50% thicker, although I haven’t had the opportunity to put that to the test just yet.

Engadget says that one of the nicest changes is the new watch faces that are designed to take advance of the larger display:

The consensus among reviewers is seemingly that the Apple Watch Series 7 is indeed an iterative update over last year’s Series 6, but that the benefits of the larger display shouldn’t be overlooked
