I skipped Apple Watch 7 preorders and bought this $30 accessory instead

When the Apple Watch 7 became available to preorder this past Friday, I didn’t rush to buy one. Instead I snapped up a new Apple Watch accessory that could improve older models with one of the Series 7’s standout upgrades.

For the first time Apple is shipping its smartwatch with a magnetic to USB-C charger, instead of a magnetic to USB-A charger. If you remember, a similar switch was made for the best iPhones when the iPhone 11 series came with Lightning to USB-C chargers two years ago. The comparable result is faster charging times, so your everyday Apple devices spend less time tethered to a cord.
