In addition to the new top model Apple Watch Series 6, the American company from Cupertino has also announced a cheap Apple Watch. The new Apple Watch SE serves as an affordable alternative to other smartwatches.
Apple Watch SE
The Apple Watch SE is the successor to the Apple Watch Series 3 and is aimed at people who find the top model too expensive. Apple can also compete with cheaper smartwatches with the Apple Watch SE.
For this budget version, Apple has used existing components from the Apple Watch Series 5 and omitted some functions, such as the ECG function and the Always-on display.
Price and release
The new smartwatch is available in two sizes. The 40mm version is available from 299 euros and the 44mm version requires a minimum of 329 euros. The Apple Watch SE can now be pre-ordered and will be shipped from Friday, September 18.
Apple S5 processor
Under the hood, the Apple Watch SE has an Apple S5 processor. That is the same chip as in the Apple Watch Series 5.
The main functions are the heart sensor, receiving messages, installing apps, fall detection, compass and much more.
