The Apple Watch Series 6, released in September 2020, is the Apple Watch’s current iteration initially launched in 2015. The Apple Watch Series 6 is identical in design to the Series 5, but there are some notable health-related features and a faster chip for better performance.
Health monitoring sensor
Series 6 has a new sensor on the back that measures your blood’s oxygen saturation, known as SpO2. You have to manually activate it on Series 6 and stay still with your wrist on a table for 15 seconds. It works reliable and consistently give readings in the expected healthy range. However, I cannot vouch for its accuracy compared to proper, medial SpO2 monitors that clip to the end of your finger.
Performance and battery
Series 6 has Apple’s S6 chip is fast, fluid, and beats even the best performance from other smart watchmakers. Battery life is stable. With the always-on display active and sleep tracking on overnight, the Series 6 lasts more than 36 hours between charges, including two manual ECG recordings, two manual blood oxygen recordings, lots and lots of notifications, and a 25-minute run.
