Apple Watch Series 6 review: The best, most feature-rich smartwatch you can buy


The Apple Watch Series 6 is the most complete smartwatch you can buy, and with the latest software and processor it's a real powerhouse too. Here's our review.

Comprehensive health and activity tracking ; Reliable software ; Always-on screen adds visual appeal ; New blue, red, and gold colors look great ; Apple S2 chip is a powerhouse

ECG and SpO2 measurements have limited real-world use

Apple Watch Series 6 review: The best new features are the boring ones


The Apple Watch Series 6 isn't much different from the Series 5, and the changes that matter most aren't necessarily the ones you can see. That said, we'll never complain when an already great smartwatch gets practical improvements like faster...

Speedier performance ; Faster charging ; Slightly improved battery life ; Timely handwashing feature

Sleep tracking in watchOS 7 isn’t super useful

Expensive ; Offers only a slight battery life improvement

Apple Watch Series 6 review: minute improvements


The best smartwatch, but not a huge change from the last one

Big, bright display ; Solid ecosystem of third-party complications ; Built-in sleep tracking

Still no third-party watch faces ; Still no Android phone support ; Blood oxygen monitoring is unreliable.

The new Apple Watch Series 6 adds a lot of small, iterative updates. The biggest one is the blood oxygen monitor, but it provides inconsistent results. Otherwise, it’s the best smartwatch.

Tight integration with iPhone ; Comprehensive fitness tracking ; Blood oxygen and ECG sensors are useful & reassuring ; Long battery life

Apple Watch Series 6 review


The Apple Watch Series 6 may seem like an incremental upgrade, but the introduction of blood oxygen monitoring is a game-changer.

Blood oxygen (SpO2) app ; New colorful casings ; Brighter always-on display ; Faster charging

Same 18-hour battery life

Premium design and accessories ; Big, bright screen with always-on display ; Stellar heart rate monitoring ; Accurate, reliable GPS ; Unmatched app support

Apple Watch Series 6 review


Is the Apple Watch Series 6 worth its price tag?

Great range of health and fitness features ; Class-leading design

Limited battery life ; New Sleep mode is a mixed bag

Apple’s Watch continues to be the smartest smartwatch – but the Series 6 feels like more of an incremental update.
