As per the rumors, Apple Watch Series 6 is set to go on sale starting Tuesday, September 15.
Apple’s Time Flies event on September 15 will the new Series 6 Watch debut. Like every flagship model, this will also be a major update. Apart from new internals, Apple Watch Series 6 is also expected to incorporate new features thanks to watchOS 7. While these may be compelling reasons to buy a timepiece that does more than a tick, you might also want to take a look at the old model before making the final call.
Apple Watch Series 6 vs Series 5, a run down of the details
With Watch Series 6, Apple will be offering updated internals and the addition of new features. The design of the Watch Series 6 will remain similar to the Watch Series 5. The rounded rectangular design, rotating crown, all those features will make it here. The display on the Watch Series 6 was rumored to use a microLED panel but production issues have sunken that ship. So, it’s highly likely that the OLED panel found on the Watch Series 5 will be featured here.
Apple Watch Series 6 vs Series 5, what’s new vs what’s old
Thanks to watchOS 7, Apple Watch will be getting user-requested features at last. There will be Sleep Tracking available on the smartwatch. And if rumors are true, the Watch Series 6 will support fast charging as well. This is an early report but can also be valid since the Sleep Tracking functionality will use a considerable amount of battery. There are new features like the Blood Oxygen level monitoring, Mental Health insights.
Apple Watch Series 6 vs Series 5, price and conclusion
Apple Watch Series 5 introduced features like ECG, Heart Rate App, a feature to track cycles, noise detect noise levels, etc… These in my opinion is enough to keep you healthy. With Apple Watch Series 6, the addition of new features might make it compelling but it’s also going to be priced upwards of $400 which needs serious consideration. If you are looking for the latest and features, then the Watch Series 6 makes sense. Else the Series 5 still offers notable features. I also have to mention that the Watch Series 5 will also see a drop in price when Series 6 arrives.
Here’s a curveball. If you want a smartwatch to keep a check on your health and daily activities, Apple Watch SE will also be up for grabs most likely from Tuesday.
