Apple Watch Series 6 delivers progressive wellness and fitness capabilities

New Apple Watch notifies you of the Golden Hour and stargazing conditions

New Apple Watch notifies you of the Golden Hour and stargazing conditions

With a starting price of $279, Apple Watch SE offers a sweet $120 in savings over Series 6.

It's a more affordable smartwatch without the extra health tracking sensors included in the new Apple Watch Series 6.

Apple has announced the Apple Watch Series 6.

You still get key health features like the optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, noise level monitoring, and emergency SOS, and it has the same general health and fitness functionality outside of the blood oxygen detection and ECG. On the other hand, the Apple Watch SE is more of an entry-level mash-up of the Series 4 and Series 5. Due to the current pandemic, 100% of the proceeds are now channeled to COVID-19 response efforts until 30th September.

The anticipated iPhone 12 was nowhere to be found, but the company did provide a glimpse at what's next for the Apple Watch.

New Apple Watch notifies you of the Golden Hour and stargazing conditions

Apple Watch SE shares a handful of features with the Series 6, including fall detection, a compass, an always-on altimeter, Emergency SOS with worldwide emergency calling, high and low heart rate notifications, irregular heart rhythm notifications, water resistance up to 50 meters, the Noise app, and compatibility with the watchOS 7 update released this week. Series 6 will be available for $399 from September 18.

Apple Watch SE is available in three aluminum case finishes (gold, silver or space gray) and is compatible with all Apple Watch bands including the new Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop.

The Always-On display in the Series 6 also lets you use Control Center and check notifications without having to raise your wrist. Apple Watch SE is also water-resistant, so that you won't have to take it off while going for a swim.

Here's a closer look at the biggest difference between the two. Both Apple Watch Series 6 and the SE have the same display and resolution.

Then, complicated algorithms use the data to determine the blood's color, which is a telltale sign of the amount of blood oxygen - Bright red means more oxygen, while darker red means less. That begs the question do you need to pay more? Gadget reviewers say that the S5 chip may just make Watch SE around 10-20 percent slower, but that is insignificant for a typical user.
