Apple introduces the Apple Watch Series 6, which, together with an SE model, can read the blood oxygen content


Apple hosted its Time Flies virtual event with nearly a million people from around the world to see what technologies the tech giant was about to reveal.

Just as many had speculated over the past week, the company unveiled the Apple Watch Series 6 with the largest addition to blood oxygen measurements.

Built-in sensors placed on the wrist can measure the color of blood flowing through the body to determine oxygen levels in just 15 seconds.

Apple had a trick up its sleeve for today's event – the new and affordable Apple Watch SE.

This model was designed with the advanced features of the Series 6 in mind, but it's priced at over $ 100.

The event also featured Apple's new iPad Air with a new chip called A14 bionic and the 8th generation iPad, which comes with its A12 bionic chip and a 10.2-inch retina display.

Apple announced last week that it would host a live virtual event on September 15 at 1:00 p.m. ET, but with no details of what viewers could expect.

However, many assumed that this would be the reveal of the new Apple Watch, and that's exactly what they got.

Apple Watch Series 6 is the first design in a stunning blue aluminum finish and proprietary product Red. Users can choose from seven new straps when ordering.

There are new faces, including Memoji, that users can customize to suit their needs and personality.

The biggest update is the oxygen measurement sensors, which Apple is using with healthcare professionals and networks to conduct larger studies.

These studies will look at how to control asthma, treat heart disease and monitor symptoms of the coronavirus.

The Series 6 is also 26 percent faster than its predecessor and is equipped with a high-performance dual processor that is used in the iPhone 11 – only revised in a smaller version.

It features Apple's in-house A13 chip and is considered to be the biggest device performance update since the Series 4 released in 2018.

The company has taken steps on a “greener” path and designed its aluminum watches from 100 percent recycled material.

Along with the legendary silicone straps, users can now choose between "Solo Loops", a continuous silicone strap with no buckles – and the new straps are available in seven different colors.

Series 6 buyers can use Apple's new watchOS7, which Apple unveiled at its global developer conference in June.

Along with the updated Apple Watch, the company announced the Watch SE. This model has the same features as last year's S5 Series, but costs only $ 279 - compared to the $ 399 price for the Series 6.
