Still, it's been a part of the Apple Watch experience since the very first model debuted back in 2015, and actually served as the inspiration for the iPhone's 3D Touch feature that first came to the iPhone 6s around the same time.
Apple has announced the Apple Watch Series 6. "With powerful new features, including a Blood Oxygen sensor and app, Apple Watch becomes even more indispensable by providing further insight into overall well-being".
"Apple Watch SE combines elements of the Series 6 design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price". Due to the current pandemic, 100% of the proceeds are now channeled to COVID-19 response efforts until 30th September. This watch will be available for $279.
The Series 5, 6, and SE all have an LTPO display, which not only enables a variable refresh rate but also makes the always on mode possible.
The $400 Apple Watch Series 6 and $280 Apple Watch SE both launched on Friday after going up for preorder on Tuesday.
Neither of Apple's new watches comes with a 5W power adapter for charging, so hopefully you have a few already on hand. It also features the enhanced Always-On Retina display.
Both watches have new Always-On altimeters for hiking, skiing, and other activities that involve elevation changes.
There is no difference between how the two watches look. Bright red blood is well oxygenated, while darker blood has less oxygen. That begs the question do you need to pay more? However, it features last year's S5 chip and it won't be having the ECG feature.
