In Cupertino, we’re still waiting for a USB C on the iPhone. We are all anticipating its adoption, but nothing has yet happened…It would be great to have a single port on all Apple devices but for now, the arrival of USB C is effective in the rest of the products, and in this case, it was the turn of the Apple Watch Series 7, also with fast charging.
Yes, the new Apple Watch models add a fast-charging system with which the user can have 80% battery in just 45 minutes. This means that now the new watches allow to fully charge the device 33% faster than previous models.
Good autonomy and faster charging with USB C
Finally, the new Apple Watches include a battery life of up to 18 hours, which is several more hours than previous models, and when combined with the charging speed of the new USB C cable, we have a perfect combination. On the other hand, it’s worth noting that this USB C cable is sold separately and is completely compatible with the rest of the Apple Watch up to Series 1, but you won’t get rapid charging.
Charging the Apple Watch is a breeze. And it’s up to 33% faster on the Apple Watch Series 7, which can reach an 80% charge in about 45 minutes. Just bring the connector close to the inside face of the watch and the magnets take care of everything. It’s a fully sealed system that does not expose any contact. It’s also very practical because it doesn’t require precise alignment. Fast charging is only available for the Apple Watch Series 7. Other models take considerably longer (approximately 16 hours).
The new magnetic fast charging cable with a USB C connector for the Apple Watch is 1 m long and priced at the Apple Store at €35. If you buy the cable right now, it will arrive on September 17th; we expect the stock to rise as the weeks pass for faster delivery.
