On Tuesday, Apple officially unveiled the Apple Watch Series 6 during its first product event of 2020. And, given that Apple’s invite for this entire thing read ‘Time flies,’ it’s safe to say none of us are shocked.
What also isn’t shocking is that Apple hasn’t changed the design of its new smartwatch, either. Aside from a few new colors, including a new Product Red model, the Series 6 looks identical to its predecessor. But, to be fair, it does pack a few new health features under the hood, including blood oxygen level tracking.
Let’s start with its aesthetic: The Series 6 has a square, aluminum case with rounded edges and an OLED display. The side of the case is home to the digital crown, which is used for navigation and to take ECG readings.
The Series 6 also includes an always-on display feature that Apple says is 2.5x brighter than the last-generation model. Additionally, the always-on accelerometer feature also tracks elevation throughout the day in real time.
But unlike the Series 5, the Series 6 comes with an SPO2 sensor to help track blood oxygen levels. Using the watch, you can take a measurement within 15 seconds to check your levels.
As for its processor, the new Watch is powered by the S6 chipset — a dual-core processor that’s up to 20-percent faster than its predecessor.
