Apple Watch SE review: The best Apple Watch for most people


How does Apple improve on its already brilliant smartwatch? By launching the Apple Watch SE, which has almost everything we want at a lower price.

Stylish design ; Highly customizable ; Comprehensive health tracking ; Responsive, fluid performance ; Reliable, easy-to-use software

No always-on display

Apple Watch SE review: An excellent starter smartwatch


The Apple Watch SE packs plenty of modern smartwatch features into a compact, low-profile package. It's not the prettiest watch, and its sleep-tracking reports aren't as insightful as the competition. But for the price the Watch SE is an excellent...

Powerful OS ; Responsive performance ; Comfortable design ; Comprehensive features for the price

Sleep tracking lags the competition ; No always-on display

Apple Watch SE Review – The Best Smartwatch for Most


Like with iPhone, Apple Watch is a family now, with 2020 bringing two new models targeting not only different price points but very different users, too. More affordable of the two, the Apple Watch…

Affordable balance of features ; Excellent battery life ; Family Setup could be a game-changer

No always-on display ; Advanced health-tracking needs a Series 6 instead

Apple Watch SE Review: price innovations


At the end of the day, the Apple Watch SE is nothing new. Apple just took the Apple Watch Series 5, cut off the always-on functionality reserving it for the more expensive Series 6, and also did not include an ECG and blood oxygen sensor. The Series 6...

More affordable price, great deal on cellular model; Fast performance; Great variety of high-quality watchfaces; Very comfortable to wear; Very accurate heart rate measurements for a smartwatch

No always-on screen; Still have to charge it every day; Sleep tracking less useful than on rivals; No ECG, no blood oxygen sensor; Does not work with Android phones

Review: Apple Watch SE is the smartwatch for first-time buyers and upgrade-holdouts | AppleInsider


While power users and fitness gurus are likely going to be drawn to the higher-price Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch SE brings a lot to the table for significantly less money.

Affordable without skimping on core features ; Twice as fast as Apple Watch SE ; Comes with watchOS 7 ; International emergency calling (LTE versions) ; Always-on altimeter

No always-on display ; No ECG features ; No SpO2 monitoring ; Battery life could be a little longer

Apple Watch SE Review: Great starter smartwatch


If you're looking to buy an Apple Watch for the first time, you'll likely find value in what the Apple Watch SE offers.

Sleek looking ; Offers most of Series 6's key features ; Excellent activity monitoring

No always-on display ; Expensive ; Disappointing battery life

If you don't know what you're missing with the always-on display and are looking to buy an Apple Watch for the first time, you'll likely find value in what the Apple Watch SE offers

Apple Watch SE review: Back to basics with a blank screen


The new Apple Watch SE is a solid smartwatch at a good price, but its main purpose is to make the Series 6 look even more attractive.

Design and display is identical to the Series 6 ; Price for the LTE model is 50% less than Series 6 ; Processor and LTE are pleasantly fast

Lack of always-on display is glaring ; Doesn't have next-gen health sensors ; Battery life is only adequate

The Apple Watch SE is a very good mid-range smartwatch, but it's going to feel very outdated before you're ready to swap it out.

Apple Watch SE review


The mid-range Apple Watch SE is a very good smartwatch, but it feels a bit pricey for what it offers.

While the Apple Watch SE is ultimately a very good smartwatch, there’s something about its features and price that doesn’t quite click for me.

Apple Watch Series SE: A Fitness First Impressions Untangled


At first glance, the Apple Watch SE seems like a straightforward Apple Release with SE branding: Take a roughly year-old model, cheapen out some materials, and call it the SE. But in reality, it's far more complex than that, and puts together what...
