The Apple Watch SE is a first-time buyer’s smartwatch


When I reviewed the original Apple Watch SE in 2020, I was certain it was the best option for most people. In fact, my SE review was titled, “ Just get the Apple Watch SE .” Back then, the always-on display was relatively new, the bigger screen with...

S8 chip is 20 percent faster ; It’s $150 cheaper than the Series 8 ; Gets the bulk of watchOS 9 features ; Excellent entry-level watch

The bezels are thick ; Smaller display isn’t good for elderly relatives ; No always-on display ; Fewer sensors

I got used to the SE’s smaller screen after a while, but I was happy to strap the Series 8 and Ultra back on my wrist for further testing. I will miss the lighter weight and the way it looks on my wrist, but not at the expense of my big, beautiful...

For its starting price of $249, the Apple Watch SE 2 offers pretty much everything most people would want from a smartwatch...

Premium build ; Water resistant ; Fast performance ; Great value for money

Apple Watch SE (2022) review


The new Apple Watch SE (2022) pairs an up-to-date processor with many of Apple's latest smartwatch features, including watchOS 9 and low power mode. Plus it checks out at a lower starting price.

If you want the full-featured Apple Watch experience, the Apple Watch Series 8 is the better choice. But I think many average users will find everything they need in the new SE.

Apple Watch SE 2022 review: The best entry point for Apple Watch | AppleInsider


The second-generation Apple Watch SE upgrade is the ideal starter Apple Watch, and the best choice for parents who want their child to have one.

Affordable without skimping on core features ; LTE isn't much more than the Wi-Fi only model ; Good alternative to providing a child an iPhone SE

No always-on display ; No ECG features ; No SpO2 monitoring

Apple Watch SE (2022) review: All Apple for part of the price


The new cheap Apple Watch SE feels like a full-price experience

Lightweight, premium design ; Excellent apps and iPhone integration ; Very good fitness options ; Long battery life (for an Apple Watch)

No always-on screen ; Limited health sensors ; Low battery life (for a fitness watch) ; Only for iPhone users still

The new Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen is as smooth, fast and flexible as Apple's more expensive smartwatches, with all the app support you could want. The new lighter build makes it perhaps Apple's most comfortable watch ever, too. It's a pity it doesn't have...

Apple Watch SE (2022) review: Best of the bunch?


Apple has three smartwatches in its 2022 line up, including a second generation Watch SE. Is it the one to buy? Here's our review.

Colour-matched body ; Lightweight ; Upgraded processor ; Great features ; WatchOS 9 ; Good price

No Always-On Display ; No body temperature sensor ; No SpO2 sensor

The Apple Watch SE makes some decent upgrades over its predecessor, predominantly in terms of a step-up in processor, as well as a colour-matched casing that is kinder to the environment, and some extra features like the Car Crash Detection. It doesn't...

Apple Watch SE (2022) review


The updated Apple Watch SE is more than enough for most people at a very un-Apple price point

Good value ; Solid feature set ; Great integration with iPhone

No always-on display ; So-so battery life

The second-gen Apple Watch SE does everything you need an Apple Watch to do with none of the extra features that makes other models much more expensive.

Apple Watch SE (2022) review: the best fit for most


Significantly cheaper than the Series 8 and with most of the same features - is this the key 2022 Apple Watch to buy?

Superb performance, latest-gen chip ; All the core Apple Watch experience ; Better value than Series 8

Larger bezels than Series 8 ; Longer battery life next time please ; Limited choice of finishes

Watch SE lays down the gauntlet for its more expensive siblings, offering most of the same experience for a chunk of cash less.

Apple Watch SE 2 review: The ‘essential’ watch


The Apple Watch SE 2 is more for an “essential” smartwatch - like a pair of blue denim and a white shirt - that will keep you in the Apple ecosystem and notify you of time on your wrist.
