Apple introduces the Apple Watch SE, a cheaper Apple Watch – TechCrunch
In addition to keeping old generation devices at an entry-level price Apple introduces a brand new Apple Watch at a cheaper price. The new Apple Watch SE features the same design as the newly announced Apple Watch Series 6. However, it costs $ 279.
“The second thing we’re doing to bring the Apple Watch to even more people is to create a new model that combines elements of the Series 6 design with key Apple Watch features at a lower price,” said Apple COO Jeff said Williams.
The Apple Watch SE uses the S5 System-on-a-Chip, which was first released for the Apple Watch Series 5. However, it has the same large display as the Series 6. It also has the same accelerometer. Gyroscope, compass and altimeter as in the 6 series.
And because the Apple Watch SE shares the same design as the Apple Watch Series 6, you can use the latest complications and watch faces that are introduced with watchOS 7.
So we need to take a closer look at the specs after the Apple event, as the Apple Watch SE is a good deal compared to the Apple Watch Series 6, which costs $ 399. You may not get blood oxygen data like you did with the Series 6, but it’s a good watch for users who just want a watch, for example, to keep track of their workout.
Apple continues to keep the Apple Watch Series 3 for the same price ($ 199). This device is now a few years old and has the older screen design. As a result, the Apple Watch Series 3 is not compatible with the latest watch faces and complications.
The company is also positioning the Apple Watch SE as a way to offer your child an Apple Watch. There is a cellular model, which means you can communicate with your child without giving them a smartphone.
The Apple Watch SE will be available on Friday. Pre-orders start today.
