September is Apple season! This year, this is true for the iPad and Apple Watch. More specifically, the flagship Apple Watch Series 6 and the more affordable Watch SE. All in all, 66 new watches in various colours and designs have been added to our range.

First, let’s take a look at the new Apple Watch Series 6 models. Second, we’ll check out the Watch SE. You can choose between GPS versions and GPS+Cellular versions. The latter are 4G models that allow you to make calls via eSIM without having to rely on your phone. Nike models are back again, too.

Depending on the model, you may have to wait a bit until the new Apple Watch is available. We are working hard to be able to deliver by the beginning of October.

The latest feature of the Apple Watch is the SpO2 sensor (also known as a pulse oximeter), which measures the oxygen content in your blood. The result, let’s say 94%, is an important indicator in determining how healthy your cardiovascular system is.

Compared to its predecessor, Series 5, the new Series 6 also has a display that is up to 2.5× faster and a processor boasting up to 20% better performance. The battery life the same at about 18 hours.

Apple Watch SE

As with the iPhone SE, Apple is trying to appeal to an even wider audience with the Apple Watch SE by making it more affordable. Let's see if their plan works. What’s for certain is that the models look good. They combine elements of the Series 6 design with popular features of previous Apple Watches. What’s more, they’re available as Nike, GPS and GPS+Cellular models.

Compared to Series 3, the Watch SE offers a faster processor, larger screen and a built-in compass, as well as international emergency call and fall detection functions.

Compared to Series 4 and 5, the Watch SE lacks the ECG function and the always-on screen. The choice is also somewhat more limited. But it comes with a smaller price tag.
