If you buy a watch with cellular connectivity directly from Apple, you can still get $100 back when you activate it on T-Mobile/Sprint or Verizon. Also, you don’t have to get the Series 7, the Apple Watch SE and the Series 3 are still around as cheaper options ($280 and $200, respectively).

However, the Series 7 brings a number of major improvements even over last year’s Series 6. The bezels are thinner so the screen is 20% bigger. Also, the Always On Display mode is now 70% brighter. The watch is more durable with a glass that is better at resisting cracks and a body that is now dust-tight (IP6X). Battery life is the same old 18 hours, but charging is 33% faster (0-80% in 45 minutes). The larger display enabled Apple to redesign the UI a bit too, like the Modular Duo watch face (with two center complications) and even a QWERTY keyboard.
