Based on the previous Apple Watch releases, RefurbMe estimates that the new Apple Watch Series 7 will be refurbished by Apple on the week of May 25th, 2022.

With slimmer bezels and bigger displays, the Apple Watch 7 has been available for purchase since September 14, 2021. It takes an average of 253 days for Apple Store to come out with a refurbished Apple Watch from its original release. But based on an estimate of previous releases, we see that some third-party refurbishers can make it available within an average of 121 days as well (January 14, 2022).

RefurbMe has analyzed all previous Apple Watch releases since 2016, with the days that elapsed from the first announcement to the first time seen on the refurb store. We came up with a prediction model for all new upcoming products:

The new Apple Watch 7

The biggest USP of the new Apple watch and what sets it apart from the rest of the models in the series is the large screen. The Apple Watch Series 7 is available in new 41mm and 45mm size options. Those are 1mm larger than the 40mm and 44mm options of previous generations. The new and improved Retina display has a unique refractive edge that almost curves to the casing.

Series 7 continues to feature the low-power OLED Always-On display technology that was first introduced in Series 5. Further allowing users to see their watch face and complications at all times. The new Apple Watch series is more durable than previous models, with crack-resistant front glass, dust, and water resistance.

When it comes to charging abilities, the Apple Watch Series 7 models are also able to charge 33 percent faster, with just eight minutes of charging providing up to eight hours of sleep tracking time. This is definitely an improvement from the previous generations. But it still gives you 18-hour battery life.
