Apple introduced today at its online presence not only the “flagship” smartwatch Apple Watch Series 6, but also the “affordable” model Apple Watch SE.
Apple Watch SE “affordable” smartwatch introduced
Of course, even an affordable Apple watch isn’t offered for $ 50. Apple Watch SE is offered in two versions – 40 and 44 mm. Apple Watch SE starts at $ 279 for a 40mm aluminum version of GPS (no cellular).
Apple Watch SE inherits the design of the Apple Watch Series 4 and newer. At the same time, the watch is based on the S5 SiP, received a built-in compass and a pre-installed watchOS 7 operating system.
As noted by Apple, the watch is twice as fast as the Apple Watch Series 3. It also has a 30% larger screen compared to the Apple Watch Series 3. Fall detection is supported.
The Digital Crown wheel reacts to the rotation with a tactile response – clicks under the finger with increasing force. The Apple Watch SE has the “most modern” speaker and microphone, and also supports Bluetooth 5.0.
The new generation barometric altimeter shows the change in altitude in real-time, it works in tandem with GPS and uses data from nearby Wi-Fi networks. As the company promises, this feature recognizes changes in height above ground level when moving up or down with an accuracy of 30 cm.
Apple Watch SE will go on sale on Friday, September 18th. And accepting pre-orders will open today. With the release of the Apple Watch SE, the company is ditching the Apple Watch Series 3 in its lineup and is no longer selling them.
