Is the Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 45 MM Version Good in 2024?

 Is the Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 45 MM Version Good? 

Another Tech Review!

And I am back again for another tech review.

There is a quote about technology saying  " If you think technology can solve your security problems, then you don't understand the problems and you don't understand the technology" 

And it makes sense. People nowadays rely on technology to measure their health or use their smartwatches to monitor their fitness stats. Giant tech companies such as Apple, Garmin, and Fitbit are investing in this category providing great features so that consumers will be enticed to buy one. 

The Apple Walled Garden

And I am one of them. As you may know, all of my devices are tied up to the Apple ecosystem. Airpods work flawlessly with my Macbook and iPhone simultaneously as well as with my Apple Watch. Once you are locked into the walled garden. It is difficult to leave. And to add it up, I bought an Apple Watch.  Silly as may sound, it's not to show off to people that all of your products are made by Apple, though some of you might think that if you have Apple devices means it's classy and expensive. You are comparing it to a Gold. The advantage of Apple products is that if you want to sell them later, the value is much greater compared to Android devices. 


My family has a long history of heart disease. My father passed away due to myocardial infarction same goes with my grandfather and my great-grandfather,  medical practitioners would abbreviate it to M.I. 

As I grew older, I became more health conscious, I avoided fatty foods, made sure that I walked at least 15 minutes every day, drank a lot of water, and slept at least 8 hours. 

2 years ago, I went to the hospital complaining about pain chest. This happened every time after a long day of work and stressed out. It was my first time to see an apparatus of an ECG Machine. There were a series of long coils with patches on them being patched to some parts of my body and throughout my chest.  After a few hours, I got the result, the doctor explained to me the result as there was a peak generated by the ECG. I forgot the terminologies the doctor had told me but I was given some medications right after.

My first time seeing and experiencing the ECG Machine...

After that consultation, I was more careful and adhered to a healthy diet and I felt better. 

I wanted to monitor my heart rate as well and later this year. I decided to purchase an Apple Watch Series 7, the 45 MM version. The main feature ( and selling point)  of this watch is that it offers the ECG feature. With a touch of your finger, the Apple watch systematically detects the heart pulse rate and sees the upper and lower chambers of your heart.  It then forwards the results to the health app which is built into the iPhone. The data that it gathers can be easily shared with your healthcare provider instantly. 

That is how convenient the Apple watch is.

Sometimes, If I feel uncomfortable or if I feel nervous. Apple watch detects my heart rate. It vibrates and notifies me that I have an erratic heart though it's only due to a feeling of nervousness. 

The Apple Watch features that I loved...

It can also measure how many hours is my sleep, it should be worn overnight to measure the exact hours and categorized into 3 parts. 

Blood oxygen measurement is also available though I don't use it but it's running in the background. If you walk for 15 minutes, the Apple Watch will vibrate and will ask you to record your steps.

Entertainment-section, the Apple Watch Series 7 can also control music and has a built-in App Store to download Apple Watch applications. Spotify, YouTube music, and Watchtube - to watch YouTube videos, are some of the applications that I installed. 

Apple Pay is also available, to activate the Apple Watch, just press the power button and you are good to go. 

There are plenty of watch complications to choose from and it's readily available in the Apple Watch app, but I prefer to choose shuffled photos.

Checking notifications and replying to my friends via iMessage or SMS directly to the phone is very useful or just telling Siri to call someone or answer a call and use it hands-free while my phone is in my pocket. 

This is the Apple Watch with and without the strap...

The Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 45 MM version has a water resistance rating of 50 meters. It can be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean.

Practically, Magic...

As Steve Jobs said. "It just works", and "It works like magic".

My Apple watch is my companion for my day-to-day routine. It helps me to be more productive and assures me that my health is on track. 

There are a lot of features which I have not mentioned. But these are some of the features that I'm using in my daily routine.

So if you may ask me. Is the Apple Watch Series 7 42mm a good product to buy in 2024? 

Absolutely! I highly recommend it.  As long as you have an iPhone, that wouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for reading my blog.
