Apple Releases Apple Watch Series 6

Apple has released a bunch of new gadgets at its latest online event. One of them is the newest Apple Watch model, the Series 6. While the Series 6 may look similar to the earlier Watch models, it does offer a slew of new features. 

The Apple Watch Series 6

The Verge reports that the Apple Watch Series 6 has new sensors that could monitor blood oxygen levels and track a user’s sleep habits. For oxygen, Apple says that the Watch Series 6 uses red and infrared light to measure blood oxygen levels in 15 seconds. 

Moreover, Apple says that it is linking up with health networks to use the blood oxygen monitors for large-scale research. These studies include tests on whether the Apple Watch Series 6 can detect COVID-19.

In terms of specs, the Series 6 uses the new S6 processor, according to The Verge. With the new S6 processor, the new Apple Watch could run 20% faster. Earlier Watch models used the S4 CPU. Now, Apple has decided to upgrade the Watch’s performance.   

The Apple Watch Series 6 could also run for 18 hours on a single charge, like the Series 5. However, the Series 6 charges faster, needing only 1.5 hours to go from zero to 100%.
