Apple Watch Series 6 delivers Apple's brand new Blood Oxygen monitor, new colors, a faster processor, Fitness+, and all-new Watch bands to go with it.
Apple Watch SE includes a lot of the same features as Apple Watch Series 5, reflected in its cheaper $279 starting price tag, and a small $50 jump for cellular. It doesn't have an always-on display, but it does come packing a 30% larger display over the Apple Watch Series 3.
