Apple presents Apple Watch 6 Apple Watch SE: the company renews its smart watches and bets on health - smartwatch, the Apple Watch 6, the new series of its smart watch, and the Apple Watch SE, a 'low-cost' version.
Thanks to this accessory, Apple has taken over half of the global smart watch business in the first half of 2020, according to data from the consultant Counterpoint. Thus, the firm has taken 51.4% of revenues in this segment, which means that it has risen more than 8 percentage points compared to the previous year.
The smartwatches market is in very good health, as it has grown by 20% year-on-year, despite the coronavirus pandemic. The best-selling model has been the Apple Watch 5, the predecessor of the one presented today by the technological. Here you will find everything known so far about the brand's new devices: features, prices and release dates.
One of the main novelties of the Watch 6 is that it will measure blood oxygen saturation in just 15 seconds. The sensor that will calculate this parameter has 4 green, red and infrared LEDs that measure the light reflected in the veins and, subsequently, an algorithm processes the result.
The Watch 6 will collect all this data, which will also be measured during sleep in the background and can be consulted in the app.
This year the company has opted for health and this has been the specification in which the most emphasis has put: "Apple is joining forces with researchers to conduct 3 studies with the Apple Watch aimed at discovering future health applications of data on blood oxygen levels."
Also, this model will be equipped with the S6 processor, which will make the device work "20% faster", as detailed by the brand. This is a dual-core chip based on the iPhone 11's A13, but optimized for this accessory.
