Apple Watch SE: Everything you need to know
Apple has announced the second-generation Apple Watch SE with minor updates and a new, more affordable price.
The Apple Watch SE, which is targeted at first-time Apple Watch owners, features an all-new color-matching back case design, the S8 advanced dual-core processor, the same processor that is in Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra, making it 20 percent faster than the previous generation, along with Crash Detection and international roaming.
Apple Watch SE maintains the same case design, but features a redesigned matching back case made of a nylon composite material, making it lighter than the previous model.
With watchOS 9, Apple Watch SE users will be able to use the new Compass app designed by Apple in addition to the enhanced fitness and wellness features. Apple Watch SE is available in 40mm and 44mm aluminum cases, in midnight, starlight, and silver finishes, and is compatible with existing Apple Watch bands.
The Apple Watch SE starts at $249 (US). The wearable is available to pre-order now on Apple.com, with deliveires and in-store availability beginning Friday, September 16.
