It looks really pretty great the design though is the exact same square finish only, the same rotating crown that when pressed goes to all of your apps, the same 3d curved infinity glass that rolls over the sides, and at first glance, you really wouldn’t know the difference from the previous generation. In fact, the only real obvious hardware changes this year is the fact that you’ve got new watch face colors and strap options, like the solo loop. You can measure your wrist on the purchase, and you can select the exact size to fit your specific risks.
The always-on display is two and a half times brighter with the series six. The differences outside of these are all under the hood. Starting with the all-new dual-core Apple S6 processor based on the A13 bionic. It is apparently 20% faster than last year’s offering. As always, it is nice to see Apple constantly improving performance in that department. It works really snappy and great. You might also want to see Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 as an alternative option.
The difference with Series 5?
So this is a slight improvement and something that might be very important to you, especially if you’re going to be using that sleep tracking. Another nice touch is the inclusion of the brand new chip. This chip uses what’s known as ultra-wide van radio which provides precise location so the watch can detect its exact position in relation to other devices in the vicinity. This improves communication with other bits of tech.
It is a great new feature on the Apple Watch Series 6. But is there anything else worthy of upgrading from the Watch Series 5? You get the already mentioned always-on display, you get the full detection with emergency calling as well as the ability to take ECG tests. You also get the book brand new watch OS seven, which comes with a host of new watch faces, new workout modes, Apple watch, family setup, and sleep tracking. But these are also available on series 5. You do get faster charging on the series 6.
Oxygen level testing (SPO2)
The real standout health feature of Apple Watch Series 6 is the blood oxygen level testing or SPO2, as it’s also known. It tests via infrared technology, the oxygen saturation within your blood non-scientifically of course. Levels of oxygen saturation, anywhere upwards of 94% are considered healthy. This monitoring can be useful for people who are suffering from medical lung and heart issues. And also for those who spend a lot of time in high altitudes.
In the package
In the box, you have the watch face, the token paperwork scraps, and one noticeable absentee. There’s no AC adapter. Yeap! There’s no charger. Apparently, Apple wants to be carbon neutral by 2030 and that was the reason the company gave. Watch Series 6 is available in 40 millimeters also available in 44 graphite stainless steel version.

So as you can see, there’s a lot of fine-tuning with watch series 6. But there’s not a huge difference this year. The term incremental upgrade gets banded around the tech scene a little bit too much, but on this occasion, it really does feel that way. If you don’t have a recent Apple watch, all the blood oxygen saturation feature, the faster charging, the new colors, the slightly better performance, and display brightness features are present on this one. Consider settling for it.
