2020 is a special year for the Apple Watch because Apple announced not just one, but two Apple Watches this year: the flagship Apple Watch Series 6 and the brand new Apple Watch SE.
In fact, the Apple Watch SE is like a lite version of the Series 6, with some features cut out and a lower price point.
On the outside, you can’t really see the difference between these two devices. To find out the difference between these two watches, we’ll have to dig deeper.
We evaluated two new watches launched by Apple. Apple Watch Series 6 is the latest watch launched by the company at the same time as the other one. Let’s compare these two latest apple watches.
The Apple Watch 6 release date was Friday, September 18, 2020, you can pick one on the business platform and offline entities. In terms of the Apple Watch 6 price, you’re looking at $399 for the 40mm version, while the 44mm version starts at $429 (those prices are for the GPS-only version, without cellular connectivity). If you want an LTE-ready watch, the 40mm starts at $499, and the 44mm at $529. The most expensive model will still set you back $1,499 if you want the most luxurious straps and finish.
The Apple Watch SE was launched globally on September 18th, 2020, and can be purchased in Apple Store or online.
The size and shape of Apple Watch Series 6 is the same as those of Series 5, and they are still 40mm and 44mm in size. The screen of Apple Watch Series 6 looks very clear on your wrist, and continues the “always-on” function of Series 5. Series 6 has bold new blue and red aluminum colors, as well as more expensive stainless steel and titanium options.
The Apple Watch SE has the exact same dimensions and design as both the Series 6 and Series 5 before it, with the familiar, mini-iPhone-Esque rounded rectangular shape. Whether you opt for the 40mm or 44mm (tested) version, the crisp and compact touchscreen is really the star of the Apple Watch experience, providing a colorful and responsive canvas for watch faces, apps, wellness and fitness tracking, and more. The one notable downside is that it does not have the always-on display of the Series 5 and 6, which means the screen remains blank when your wrist isn’t raised.
The most prominent function of Apple Watch SE is that satellites can locate watches, thus improving the positioning accuracy. Secondly, it has waterproof function, which can take watches to swim. And it can track people’s sleep. With the launch of watchOS7, you can also get more ways to track fitness in the apps, and you can stop and start running, cycling and swimming at any time. This function will also make you record calories more accurately, and you will know the peak of your fitness.
The biggest function of Apple Watch series 6 is blood oxygen detector, which can monitor whether your blood oxygen is normal or not, and remind you that you need to check your body if it is abnormal, which is the best choice for people with heart disease.
If you want the most up-to-date performance and experience an Apple Watch can offer, the Series 6 is the right choice for you. It has two game-changing features: the blood oxygen monitor and electrical heart sensor, which really take health monitoring to the next level.
If you are interested in the Apple Watch but don’t want to spend that much money or don’t need the exclusive features found on the Series 6, the Apple Watch SE is a great option to go with. It lacks several features that can be found on the Series 6 but still carries more features than the entry-level Series 3.
If it’s your first time to own an Apple Watch, the Apple Watch SE is a great option to start with. It’s significantly cheaper than the Series 6 but has many of the the same features as the flagship. And it has way more features than the Series 3. And as always, you can find countless Apple Watch bands that suits the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE.
Generally speaking, Apple Watch Series 6 is undoubtedly the best watch at present, and it has upgraded and added many functions. If you already have an Apple Watch and want to update your watch now, it is your best choice. If you don’t need so many functions, or just want to buy a new watch, you can choose Apple Watch SE, which is the cheapest
