We’re big fans of the Apple Watch Series 6. In our Apple Watch Series 6 review, we referred to it as the best and most feature-rich smartwatch you can buy right now. It has everything you could need. That includes a fantastic Always-On Retina display that means you don’t have to constantly flick your wrist to look at the screen. It’s 2.5 times brighter outdoors when your wrist is down too compared to previous Apple Watches.
Alongside that are other substantial improvements such as a processor that’s up to 20% faster than the Apple Watch Series 5, plus an all-new sensor that measures your blood oxygen level as you go about your daily business and workouts. There’s also the ECG app for keeping an eye on your heart rhythm at all times. It’s a great way of getting a rough overview of how well your body is performing, no matter what you’re doing during your day.
Other useful features include the many health and activity tracking tools so that the Apple Watch does all the hard work while you simply, well, work hard. It’s swim-proof too so you can easily use this in the pool as well as while running or lifting weights. There’s also extensive notification functionality and, of course, you can now take calls, send texts, or get directions without your phone by your side. That’s sure to be useful if you’d prefer to carry fewer items on your runs or hikes.
The Apple Watch Series 6 looks great and is hugely practical for a wide range of different uses. Normally priced at $499, Amazon has it for just $449 right now. The $50 savings works out at 10% off the usual price making it a tempting proposition if you have big plans to be more active in the new year.
