APPLE WATCH SERIES 6-The Life Saving Smart Watch, Review, Price, Feature, Watch faces

APPLE WATCH SERIES 6

The Apple Watch is probably the most popular smartwatch in the world. Apple sold more smartwatches last year than the entire Swiss watch industry combined, shipping 31 million units in one year, according to Strategy Analytics. In its sixth version, the Apple Watch Series 6 is more than just a smartwatch and surpasses the offerings of a fitness tracker tremendously.

This review explores just how well the watch performs its work. We received a 44mm cellular version of the Apple Watch for checking. There are many critical health-related features alongside a faster chip for enhanced outcomes. There is a modern sensor that measures oxygen saturation in the blood for a better understanding of exercise and well-being.

Apple has introduced an ever-on altimeter that is more power-efficient and can be seen at all times on the face of the watch. Along with the low power (LTPO) OLED Always-On monitor introduced in Series 5, the watch has the same lighter, narrower case introduced in Series 4. It is available in 40 and 44mm size choices and comes with a Mechanical Crown with haptic input in black ceramic and sapphire crystal backing.

The chip is up to 20% quicker and delivers the same 18-hour all-day battery life as the Series 5, plus it can be fully charged in 1.5 hours. The Apple Watch is water-resistant and supports Apple Pay sales as previous versions, and in addition to ECG and sleep-tracking functionality, it has all the same health-related features. It will take measurements of the ECG, record sleep, check for decreases in fall detection, make emergency SOS calls, and pay attention to unusually noisy noises.

The same U1 chip and ultra-wideband antennas that were launched in the iPhone 11 models are new to the Apple Watch Series 6. For both GPS and GPS + LTE features, Apple provides the Series 6. For the Apple Watch this year, there are three new band options, two of which exclude closures and straps.

Apple also launched the lower-cost Apple Watch SE, which is similar in design to the Series 6, but it lacks certain core features to keep prices down. It lacks an always-on monitor, only comes in aluminum, has no sensor for blood oxygen, does not do ECG readings, and does not support WiFi 5GHz. It also has no control of heart rate, fall detection, monitoring of operation, emergency SOS, help for Apple Pay, sleep tracking, water tracking, and more. Starting at $279, it is available now and comes in stainless steel, aluminum, and blue.

APPLE WATCH SERIES 6: Design & Display

The Apple Watch Series 6 has slim-bezels screens to match a range of various wrists in 40 and 44 mm style choices. Both versions have a black ceramic and crystal back that includes several heart rate tracking monitors, blood oxygen monitoring, and ECGs. For navigation purposes, a Digital Crown is visible on the side of the Apple Watch, and there’s a side press. LTE models have a red ring around the Digital Crown, so you know they have LTE features, although there is no red ring for GPS-only models. The Digital Crown is fitted with haptic feedback that gives the Watch an accurate, mechanical feeling while browsing through lists and manipulating different facets. The ECG app has a built-in electrode that works in tandem with the sensors on the Apple watch.

The Apple Watch Series 6 features an OLED poly-silicon and oxide display with an ultra low power temperature. It has an Always-On Retina display that enables continuous visibility of time, problems, and other detail. To retain battery life, the monitor dims when the wrist is down, but core features like watch hands remain illuminated all the time. For hiking, skiing, and related sports, there is also an always-on barometric altimeter that records elevation changes in real-time. For the feature, Apple has customized watch faces that are noticeable at all times, such as fitness metrics for the Exercise app. The 40mm Apple Watch has a 324 x 394-pixel resolution, while the larger 44mm version has 364 pixels.

Power touch gestures have been omitted from the Apple Watch by Apple. When pressing down on the monitor with a finger, Force Contact was used to access dynamic menus. The swipe-down action now operates by swiping down to the end of a notification list or deleting all messages. Some movements have been moved to the Settings app or have been replaced with new symbols, such as when a Transfer Goal in the Action app is modified. The Digital Crown will also be used, for example, to swipe down to enter extra settings or to unlock new windows.

Two new aluminum shades were launched this year by Apple: a royal blue hue and a vivid red. Apple Watch versions in stainless steel are offered in silver, gold, and graphite, which is a rich gray hue. Titanium models give, along with a brushed finish, the toughness of the stainless steel models, but are lighter in weight and avoid staining. Sapphire crystal displays feature both stainless steel and titanium versions that are more scratch-resistant than the Ion-X glass used by aluminum models. Apple Watch Series 6 models are LTE only with no cheaper GPS models available. Aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. The aluminum models are the cheapest, while the titanium models are the most costly.

APPLE WATCH SERIES 6: Features

Series 6 Apple Watch models are certified for immersion in water as deep as 50 meters because of the seals and adhesives. The speaker, which uses air to produce sound, is the only point of entry and has been built to expel water from itself using sound waves following exposure to moisture.

As it is rated for 50m immersion, the Apple Watch can be used while swimming in the ocean or a pool. It is, however, only acceptable for shallow-water activities and should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, showering, or other activity, like high-speed water or deep submersion.

Unlock Face ID iPhones A “Unlock with Apple Watch” feature will be added with the Apple Watch. The functionality is programmed to allow a Face ID iPhone to use an activated and authenticated Apple Watch as a secondary measure of authentication. It is identical to the Mac unlocking functionality of the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 6 includes electrical and optical heart rate monitors, blood oxygen tracking LEDs and infrared illumination, a next-generation accelerometer used, among other devices, for fall detection, a gyroscope, an ambient light sensor, and a more battery-efficient barometric altimeter to chart climbed stair flights, ascending elevation gains, and more. Note that in certain environmental conditions, the altimeter can be unreliable.

APPLE WATCH SERIES 6 Charging & battery life

Apple says the new Apple Watch Series 6 offers an all-day battery life of up to 18 hours. The new Apple Watches charge faster than ever, which is useful for features like Sleep Tracking. Apple bases predictions of “all-day” battery life on 90-time tests, 90 alerts, 45 minutes of smartphone usage, and a 60-minute music streaming exercise using Bluetooth. A 1.17Wh battery that is 3.5 percent bigger than the battery in the Series 5 is used in the 44mm Apple Watch.

VERDICT

The Apple Watch Series 6 needs to be seriously regarded by everyone in the Apple community who is searching for a new smartwatch. The Series 6 will certainly be seen as a very viable choice for first-time buyers or those wanting to switch out their Series 4 (or older). Waiting for the next Apple Watch could do for anyone with the Series 5. The Apple Watch delivers one of the best monitoring features across a wide variety of metrics if you’re someone who takes your fitness metrics very seriously, with the drawback being the wellness app, which declines to share granular details. If you go for the LTE version, then you have the bonus of your handset being untethered.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is compatible with One of the best smartwatch experiences in the industry continues to be offered by the Apple Watch Series 6 and, frankly, there is very little excuse not to recommend it. It doesn’t hurt that it is still the best-looking smartwatch in the market.

Driven by the latest S6 SiP, the Apple Watch Series 6 provides new hardware and software features. For blood oxygenation levels and VO2 MAx readings from exercises, you get a brand new SpO2 monitor. We also get quick-charging of the Apple Watch for the first time thanks to the latest SiP, topping the battery from 5 percent to full in around 90 minutes. When it comes to measuring various types of exercises, tracking the time, effort, and heart rate-based measurements with great precision, the Apple Watch is an accurate unit. The software environment for the Watch has come a very long way in terms of the smart features of the Apple Watch, allowing the watch to be a seamless extension of your  iPhone
