Besides boasting the same rounded edges, digital crown and power button as that of its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 6 is equipped with a dual-core processor based on A13 Bionic in iPhone 11, the latest S6 chips that offer faster and more fluid performance. On the rear side, the watch features a new sensor that measures oxygen saturation (also known as SpO2) in the blood for a better understanding of fitness and wellness. In order to ensure accuracy, four LED clusters and four photodiodes are used to measure light reflected back from blood. All data are then accessible via the Health app. The watch offers faster charging, which can be fully recharged in 1.5 hours, and noticeably improved 18-hour battery life that’s not only sufficient for tracking workouts both indoors and out, but also handling features such as blood oxygen recordings and tons of notifications. Comfortable on the wrist, it has a range of strap options, such as the Solo Loop and Solo Braided Loop, which are stretchable bands without a buckle or clasp that stretches.
