Apple has a striking wearable on its hands with the Apple Watch Series 7, and part of that is thanks to the handful of colors the smartwatch is available in. After using the Series 5 and Series 6 Apple Watches to introduce new features and health sensors, the main focus of the Apple Watch Series 7 is its design. It has softer and more rounded corners, increases the case sizes to 41mm and 45mm, and brings larger displays to cram more information on the screen at once. If the last couple of years of Apple Watches have begun to feel aesthetically boring, the Apple Watch Series 7 is a pretty compelling upgrade.
SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
While Apple hasn’t traditionally played around with exciting colors for the Apple Watch, that started to change in 2020. The Apple Watch Series 6 came in the same space gray, silver, and gold as previous Apple Watches, though it also introduced new blue and red options to the mix. As a wearable device that’s often seen as a fashion accessory, having multiple colors to choose from is a really nice touch. Thankfully, this is something that has continued with Series 7.

The Apple Watch Series 7 is available in five colors for the aluminum case: midnight, starlight, green, blue, and red. Each one can be paired with a variety of watch bands to further personalize their appearance, though the case color cannot be changed after purchase. All five colors are offered for both the 41mm and 45mm variants of the Apple Watch Series 7, which start at $399 and $429, respectively. Additionally, the stainless steel Apple Watch Series 7 comes in silver, graphite, and gold options.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Midnight
Starting at the top of the list, midnight is the most subdued color. It’s darker than space gray and is reminiscent of a matte black. Some folks might find it a bit boring, but for anyone who wants their watch to be sleek and stealthy, midnight looks to be a fantastic option.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Starlight
Starlight is the most neutral color and replaces the previous silver style. Compared to silver, starlight almost appears to be slightly tan. It doesn’t do anything to draw attention to itself, but again, that’s exactly what some people want from their Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Green
If someone wants a bit of pizazz without going overboard, the green Apple Watch Series 7 could be a perfect middle ground. It’s a very dark green that could actually be mistaken for black at a glance. In fact, it’s pretty reminiscent of the green color Google used on the Pixel 5a last year.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Blue
But what if that’s not quite colorful enough? Another option is the new blue color. It’s brighter than the blue Apple used for the Series 6 Apple Watch and thus sticks out a bit more. If someone’s bored with the midnight, starlight, and green colors, the blue Apple Watch Series 7 is a great choice.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Red
Similarly, the red Series 7 is every bit as vibrant as its blue counterpart. Blue and red may be more difficult to pair with certain Apple Watch bands down the road, so keep that in mind before going all-in with an intense color like that.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Silver
Then there are the stainless steel options for the Apple Watch Series 7. Many people will argue that the silver stainless steel Apple Watch is the best one to get. It’s sleek, neutral, and is the least likely to show scratches picked up during daily wear.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Graphite
But if you’re OK with painted stainless steel, the graphite color looks outstanding. It has the same weight and heft as the silver option, but it replaces the natural silver color with a discrete gray one. If you’re trying to create the stealthiest Apple Watch aesthetic possible, this is the way to go.
Apple Watch Series 7 In Gold
Last but certainly not least, there’s the Apple Watch Series 7 in gold. This is the Apple Watch to get if you want to be as luxurious as possible. The heft of the stainless steel paired with the shiny gold color is bound to be overkill for some shoppers. But for others, it’ll be just the style they’re searching for.
