Apple Watch Series 6 (opens in new tab)
Apple Watch Series 6 is available from just $299 right now, the lowest it has ever gone with a discount of $100. The lowest price is on the red 40mm version. Other models are seeing discounts of up to $80.
Apple Watch Series 6 is the latest, top-of-the-line Apple Watch model which hit the market late last year. It maintains features from the previous Series 5 like heart rate monitoring, the ability to take an ECG, fall detection, customizable watch faces, and activity tracking, while also adding some useful new capabilities.
One notable addition exclusive to the Series 6 is Blood Oxygen monitoring. It allows users to measure the level of oxygenation in their blood via the built-in sensor and Blood Oxygen app. The watch will also do some background monitoring of your blood oxygen levels as you work, work out, relax, and sleep.
Also only on the Series 6 is an always-on altimeter, which allows you to always understand your current elevation at any moment. This is a really handy feature for those who like to hike, camp, or cyclists who enjoy a good hill climb. The new, brighter always-on display also makes it easier to check the time or any other data point at a glance, especially outdoors.
On the inside, the Series 6 has been upgraded to a new S6 system-in-package which is 20% faster without sacrificing the all-day 18-hour battery life. In fact, the latest Apple Watch charges faster and actually has improved battery life for some tasks, such as certain types of workouts like running.
At today's price, the Apple Watch Series 6 is not much more expensive than the Apple Watch SE so it's definitely worth comparing the two to see which is right for you.
