Today Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. You can find out which new features these come with here.

The Apple Watch Series 6 comes in two new colors. Red and blue. The rest of the design stayed the same. So there is still a 40- and 44-millimeter version with the edge-to-edge touchscreen. The blood oxygen sensor on the back is new. With the Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, this can not only be measured, it can also detect malfunctions of the heart. It is also intended to be used for COVID-19 studies.

Apple also showed new bracelets, the Solo Loops. These are straps without a clasp. Due to the elastic material, it is no longer needed. Another innovation is Family Setup. With this, parents can determine, among other things, which contacts their own children can interact with and see where the child is currently. You don't even need an iPhone for this, an Apple Watch with LTE is sufficient.

It also enables some other nice things. Because it is more energy efficient, the always-on display can be brighter, for example.
