The Apple Watch Series 6 carries the design of the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5 now discontinued. It features a larger screen, slimmer bezels, and rounder corners than previous versions. New this year is a blood oxygen sensor and faster charging. It also includes last year’s top features, an always-on display, now brighter, and a built-in compass. With a dual-core 64-bit S6 processor, the Apple Watch Series 6 is 20 percent faster than the performance of the previous model, the Apple Watch Series 5. The Series 6 is available in aluminum, stainless steel or titanium finishes .
This version of Apple Watch also features an electrocardiogram (ECG) system that is capable of detecting if you are experiencing heart abnormalities such as atrial fibrillation. There is also a built-in fall detection tool that automatically communicates with emergency services if you fall. The Apple Watch Series 6 also includes a louder speaker, which is ideal for receiving calls, ceramic and sapphire crystal back, and increased storage capacity. The last of these is great for charging your portable device with podcasts and audiobooks.
If there is a downside to buying the Apple Watch Series 6, it is the price. The newer version costs at least $ 120 more than the Apple Watch SE, depending on the model.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is available in 44mm and 40mm with GPS and GPS + Cellular only. Prices vary based on screen size, case material, and watch strap type.

The Apple Watch SE includes many of the features of the Series 6, but for less money. These features include a built-in optical heart sensor, water resistance up to 50m, fall detection, a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 18 hours between charges, and a barometric altimeter. It’s available in 40mm and 44mm sizes and features the same dual-core S5 chip found in the Apple Watch Series 5. You can also purchase the GPS-only version or the GPS + Cellular version, depending on your needs.
