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: pay a lot less to give up only a little


The SE will be the go-to smartwatch for many this year

Fast performance ; Great smartwatch software ; Reliable battery life

No always-on display ; No third-party watch faces ; No ECG or blood oxygen monitoring

Apple’s new Watch SE is a lower-cost model that doesn’t give up the things that really matter: a nice, big screen, fast performance, reliable battery life, and excellent smartwatch software. At $279 and up, it’s going to be the default smartwatch for...

Apple Watch SE Review


Same screen size and resolution as the Series 6 ; Supports fall detection, heart health notifications, and Emergency SOS ; Always-on altimeter for real-time elevation tracking ; WatchOS 7 adds a handwashing countdown timer and sleep tracking ; Best...

No always-on display mode ; Lacks ECG and SpO2 sensors

The Apple Watch SE drops the always-on display and a couple of advanced health sensors from the Series 6, but otherwise delivers the same winning app, fitness, and safety features for $120 less.

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

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 SE review


Is the mid-price Apple Watch SE any good?

Solid feature count ; Good battery life ; Sensibly priced ; Fairly future-proof

This is the Apple Watch to own – it has all the features you need and none of the ones you don't. It's affordable too.
