It’s time for two new Apple watches! The health-oriented Apple Watch Series 6 has blood oxygen sensors and a super-bright screen, while the affordable Apple Watch SE ensures that there is an Apple Watch for everyone.
Note! We will update this page when news comes out. We will include links to Series 6 Watch and Apple Watch SE when available on the Apple Store.
Apple Watch Series 6: A health and fitness machine
As a direct follow-up to the Apple Watch Series 5, the new Apple Watch Series 6 offers performance improvements and an increased emphasis on health and fitness. The new blood oxygen monitoring sensor can measure your SpO2 in just 15 seconds and take occasional background readings to help you keep up with your respiratory and heart health.
The Series 6 Watch is two and a half times brighter than its predecessor, so you can see it outdoors without rolling your eyes. It also has a real-time height sensor, updated clocks and sleep tracking. Of course, the updated monitoring surfaces and sleep tracking are available on older Apple watches with the watchOS 7 software update.
The Apple Watch Series 6 starts at $ 399 and is available in 40 and 44 mm sizes. An additional $ 50 gives you a mobile connection so you can use your Apple Watch without having your iPhone with you. The mobile model also comes with family settings for tracking and managing family members. Apple Watch Series 6 is available in four flavors – blue, black, gold and Apple’s popular PRODUCT (RED) color.
Apple Watch SE: The new affordable standard
Why pay extra for features you will not use? The new Apple Watch SE skips the ECG and is always displayed to provide a modern portable experience at a low price. Starting at $ 279, it’s the best Apple Watch for the average person and an attractive alternative to the Apple Watch Series 3.
While the Apple Watch SE looks like (or almost identical to) the Series 4, it has an S5 processor that should look good even with the most demanding apps. In addition, it has the same bright screen as the Apple Watch Series 6 and supports Apple’s fall detection feature.
The Apple Watch SE is available in sizes 40 mm and 44 mm, with the option to add mobile support for an additional $ 100. The mobile model does not require an iPhone to connect to the internet and includes Family Setup to track and manage family accounts.
New Bands, Fitness +, Family Setup and the $ 199 Series 3
Finally, Apple is updating the software and accessories that surround the Apple Watch. A new series of interchangeable wristwatches called Solo Loop has no lock, buckle or overlapping parts. It is a stretchable silicone strap that goes anywhere – even in the pool. It is available in different sizes in several colors and is available with a soft or braided structure.
Apple also launches two new services; Fitness + and Family Setup. The new Fitness + service provides customized professional workouts for just $ 10 a month, while Family Setup lets Apple Watch mobile users track and manage family members on the go. Family Setup is available to anyone with an Apple Watch phone.
Apple includes 3 months Fitness + with all Apple Watch purchases – worth $ 30. The company is also lowering the price of its Series 3 watch to just $ 199, so you can choose between the Premium Series 6, the modern Apple Watch SE or the classic and affordable Series 3 watch.
