Apple Announces Apple Watch Series 6 with new Blood Oxygen Sensor


Apple’s popular smartwatch series, Apple Watch, has just got an upgrade. Called the Apple Watch Series 6, the new smartwatch now improves on where its predecessor left with a new sensor.

Apple Watch Series 6 now can measure your blood oxygen – in just 15 seconds, the company said. It also can track your blood oxygen in the background.

Besides the new sensor, the new watch also brings a new feature called Family Setup, solely aimed at parents. It allows parents to take over control of their children’s smartwatch and keep tabs on them.

As a parent, you can set up your child’s smartwatch to track their location and also limit who they can talk to via iMessage.

The family Setup feature requires a cellular version of the Apple Watch, but the child doesn’t need to have an iPhone.

Apple Watch Series 6 also brings aesthetic improvements making the Series 6 more appealing.

New Watch Faces

Like the previous smartwatches in the series, Series 6 tags along with new watch faces. Apple Watch Series 6 makes it easy to customize watch faces in a whole new way.

There’s, however, a total of 7 premade watch faces on the new smartwatch out-of-the-box; GMT, count-up, chronograph pro, typograph, stripes, and the mimoji face. Each premade watch face can be customized in different ways. Watch OS 7 also grants developers more power to create and customize new watch faces.

Apple also introduced a new watchband, called the solo-loop – a simple, one-continuous piece. The solo loop is made from custom liquid silicon, hence stretchable and swim proof.

The solo loop is available in different sizes and seven colors, giving customers a range of options to choose from. There’s also a braided solo loop in five colors and a new leather watchband.

Apple Watch Series 6 Price

Apple Watch Series 6 costs $399 – around KES 40,000.

More Hardware

At the event, Apple also launched a budget smartwatch dubbed Apple Watch SE, and two new iPad models. And, no, there were no iPhones announced.
