The new Apple Watch SE is available from today to order, starting to be sold next Friday (18). The spiritual successor to the Series 3 retains many of its features, but adds new features with a familiar design.
The Apple Watch SE is here, cheap and competent!
Side by side with the new Watch Series 6 and keeping the Series 3 available, Apple now gives us the smartwatch with the best price / quality ratio on the market, the Apple Watch SE. The new watch can also use the new bracelets presented today.
Among the main features of the Apple Watch SE we have the detection of accidental drops; compass; altimeter always active; waterproof box; sleep monitoring; the new Family Setup module; sharing of watchfaces and other functions already known.
The new watch uses the S5 processor which, according to Apple, provides twice the performance of the Watch Series 3. In other words, the new Watch SE is up to twice as fast as the old Series 3.
The perfect companion for the iPhone SE (2020)
Like the iPhone SE (2020), also the new Apple Watch SE was created to deliver more power and functions, at a fairer and more competitive price. The aim of the smartwatch is simple, to compete and surpass the other cheap smartwatches on the market.
The design of the Apple Watch SE is very similar to the Series 4, discontinued as soon as the Series 5 was introduced in end of 2019. The connectivity options are two – Bluetooth and LTE . Apparently, the new SE does not have the function always-on .
Equipped with the watchOS 7 operating system, presented by Apple during WWDC 2020, we have the new application (Fitness Plus) with better monitoring of training sessions and functions dedicated to distance learning.

The model with Bluetooth connection starts at 279 dollars, price indicated for the United States of America. The version with LTE connection (mobile networks), will cost from 329 dollars .
Apple Watch SE will be available from the day on 18 September (Friday) in the USA. It appears to have the same dimensions as the Series 4 and, in this case, it will be available in two sizes, 40 mm and 42 mm of box.
