Apple Watch Series 6 is the new high-end model with blood oxygen tracking, a faster S6 chip, a next-generation always-on altimeter, and new casing options like blue aluminum and graphite stainless steel. Pricing starts at $399.

Starting at $279, the lower-cost Apple Watch SE features the same external design as the Apple Watch Series 6, but with some features missing, including an always-on display, blood oxygen tracking, and the ECG app for detecting atrial fibrillation. Apple Watch SE is also powered by the previous-generation S5 chip from the Apple Watch Series 5.

Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE share a handful of features, including fall detection, a compass, an always-on altimeter, Emergency SOS with international emergency calling, high and low heart rate notifications, irregular heart rhythm notifications, water resistance up to 50 meters, the Noise app, and compatibility with watchOS 7.

lol I love how they mention always on altimeter and a way brighter always on display yet... no mention of battery life xD ...I wonder if we'll start seeing complaints about that when people start using them... Always-on is such a gimmick to me outside of say... maybe workouts. It's just a waste of energy... why some might call it irresponsable. (not me, don't worry ;) )

Anyone notice the Apple Watch models are all stating shipping times of "Sep 25 - Sep 29"? I may just go in-store and grab one...

Did apple do away with the included charging cable? honestly that is kind of offensive.

APPLE, include the damned cable you charge your watch with. nuts!

I can’t see upgrading from my S4.
I see myself upgrading - even it'd only be to get a fresh battery after a couple hundred cycles on the S4 battery. The other improvements are just the icing on the cake.
