Apple's new cheaper smartwatch is Apple Watch SE Apple announced, as expected, the new Apple Watch Series 6 to replace last year's Series 5. However, the more interesting announcement was the completely new Apple Watch SE.
The company obviously borrowed the SE moniker from the iPhone in which it represents a cheaper version of their flagship device. In this case too, the Apple Watch SE is a cheaper version that combines some of the features from the flagship to some tech from previous generations.

Apple Watch SE features the last years S5 chip which isn't quite as fast as the new S6 on Series 6 but, according to Apple, is up to two times faster than the Series 3.



Some newer features are included with the SE, like the new watch faces, sleep monitoring, fall detection, compass, and altimeter, and you'll get the same straps you get with the Series 6. As with Series 6, the SE runs new watchOS 7.



There's also waterproofing, which means it can be taken for a swim, and you can get it with cellular connectivity.

Apple Watch will be available this Friday starting at $279.
