While some pretty wild rumors swirled around the Apple Watch Series 7 before its unveiling, the device Apple revealed looks remarkably similar to the Apple Watch Series 6 that came before it.

The Series 7 comes in some new hues and has a slightly larger display at 41mm or 45mm, though it retains the rounded shape of its predecessors. That larger display does, however, allow for some exclusive new watch faces that make the most of the extra real estate as well as a full-size QWERTY keyboard for composing quick text replies.

Other notable improvements include a more crack-resistant glass screen and an IP6X dust resistance rating, a first for Apple Watch, meaning you can be confident using your Series 7 at the beach. That’s on top of the already-stellar 50M water resistance rating.

Apple Watch Series 7 maintains the 18-hour battery life of its predecessor while charging 33% faster, according to Apple.
