Apple’s big September special event has come to a close and we’ve seen pretty much exactly what we were expecting to be announced. Two of the big updates were the arrival of Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. So how do they compare with the outgoing flagship – the Apple Watch Series 5.

As you’d expect, the Apple Watch Series 6 is everything the Apple Watch Series 5 was, but better and with more features.

The Apple Watch SE is very similar to the outgoing Apple Watch Series 5, but with a couple of important features stripped away to save some money. Namely, there is no always-on display and the important ECG functionality has also been removed.

In terms of the Apple Watch Series 6, we get the same features we saw from the popular Apple Watch Series 6. Inside, the new S6 SiP will be even more powerful than last year’s S5, making apps run more quickly and the whole watch more responsive. There’s also the inclusion of a blood oxygen sensor for the first time, too. That could be huge for people who are susceptible to low oxygen levels.

Beyond that, the Apple Watch Series 6 is very similar to the Apple Watch Series 5. There is the same 32GB capacity – the same goes for the Apple Watch SE, for that matter – and the same level of connectivity, too. If you won an Apple Watch Series 5, the only real reason to upgrade is that blood oxygen sensor.

With Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE, and Apple Watch Series 3 now making up the full Apple Watch lineup, there really is a wearable for everyone right now.
