Launched at Apple’s Time Flies event in September, the Apple Watch Series 6 is slicker, quicker, and more functional than ever. This year’s model builds on the success of the Series 5 (which took the radical step of incorporating an always–on display) by including a more efficient S6 processor and adding blood oxygen monitoring. The Apple Watch Series 6 is also available in a range of new colors, including (Product) Red.
Prices start at $399 for the 40mm aluminium Watch and $429 for the 44mm model. You can opt for Stainless Steel (from $699/$749) or Titanium (from $799/$849) cases, plus there are a range of strap options, topping out with the Hermès at $1,499.
Whichever style of Watch Series 6 you buy, its form and function remain the same. You get a rounded rectangle with a smooth glass top that gently curves into its case. On the right are the color–ringed Digital Crown and side button; at the back you’ll find a completely redesigned crystal containing four LED clusters and four photodiodes — these enable the Watch to monitor your blood oxygen levels. And the Apple Watch has the ability to monitor your heart rate too.
