Apple Releases Apple Watch SE

Despite the absence of the iPhone 12 in Apple’s latest event, the company still released new products that should tide over Apple users. One of them is the Apple Watch SE. 

The Apple Watch SE

The Verge reports that the Watch SE is the cheaper successor to the Apple Watch Series 3. In the report, the Verge says that the Watch SE shares similar features to the latest Apple Watch, the Series 6. Among these features are the built-in gyroscope, sleep tracking, and handwashing timer. 

However, the Watch SE lacks the features of the more recent Watch models. Namely, unlike the Series 5, the SE doesn’t have an always-on display. The SE also doesn’t have a native ECG app, like the Series 4. Moreover, the Watch SE can’t monitor your blood oxygen levels, unlike the Series 6.

More Apple Watch SE Specs

Compared to the Watch Series 3’s 42mm and 38mm display, the Watch SE has a larger retina display, which is larger by 30%. Users can also buy every Apple Watch band for the SE, including the silicone and yarn-braided Solo Loops.   

Like the iPhone SE, Apple also wants the Watch SE to become its dedicated cheap smartwatch. The Watch SE should compete head-to-head with other budget smartwatches from Fitbit, among others.  

What Else Can You Do with the Watch SE?

For its OS, the Watch SE will come with Apple’s latest watchOS 7. Because of the update, Watch SE owners can launch Apple’s new activity app, called Fitness Plus. Fitness Plus could track your workouts, and it also offers virtual classes.

If you buy the Watch SE, you’ll get a free 90-day Fitness Plus trial, which costs $9.99 afterward. Grab the Apple Watch SE now, for $279. Pre-order it here
