Apple has supplied the tech genre with more innovative hardware than it can handle, and at a pace that’s surprising, to say the least. If you’re a fan of Apple’s consistent innovation when it comes to its expansive product line, you’ll be all the more impressed with its latest fitness-focused smartwatch, the Series 6.
Announced this morning by the transcendental tech giant, the Apple Watch Series 6 is its most advanced model, to date. It features an all-new, fitness-focused Blood Oxygen sensor and app, operating system (OS7), and a faster S6 System in Package (SiP), giving it an intuitive upgrade that’s catered toward ease of use. Of course, the primary pull of the system — its Blood Oxygen sensor — is the most enticing trait. Thanks to its inclusion, wearers will gain new insight in regard to their personal health, as well as “further insight into overall well-being,” via the watch’s unique oxygen saturation (Sp02) metrics. To achieve this, four photodiodes join with infrared lighting on the watch’s rear to measure blood oxygen levels. This information is reflected within its legible, always-on Retina display, and complemented by its all-day, 18-hour battery life. If you’re interested in the new-gen watch but don’t care for the Sp02 sensor, you can opt for the all-new Watch SE, which includes its own suite of activity-focused attributes. The Series 6 is currently available for $399 and up, while the SE clocks in at an affordable $279.
