Apple Watch Series 6 Aluminum Highlights

The Apple Watch Series 6 comes in 40mm and 44mm case options that both have a ceramic and sapphire crystal back finish and come in aluminium, stainless steel, titanium, and ceramic materials. The smartwatch is powered by a new Apple S6 SiP (system in package), which is claimed to be up to two times faster than the S5 processor available on the Apple Watch Series 5. There is also a W3 wireless chip for seamless connectivity with Apple devices. Furthermore, the Series 6 is the first in its family to come with an ultra-wideband (UWB) technology and the U1 chip that enable connectivity using radio waves in a short range.

Apple has provided an always-on Retina display on the Apple Watch Series 6 that has a refresh rate of up to 60Hz. The display is also touted to have a peak brightness of 1,000 nits.

It also features an always-on altimeter.In terms of health and wellness tracking, Apple Watch Series 6 now lets users measure their blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) thanks to the new health sensor that uses infrared light and photodiodes to detect colour of blood under the skin calculate blood oxygen saturation. Users will receive an alert if their blood oxygen levels drop below the reference figure between 95 and 100 percent. The smartphone also retains the electrical heart sensor that first debuted on the Series 4 and is designed to record heartbeat and rhythm. It can detect atrial fibrillation (AFib) and can provide an electrocardiogram (ECG) report.

The Apple Watch Series 6 also comes with mental health tracking features, to detect panic attacks and high levels of stress. It also offers regular breathing exercises to control your stress levels. Further, the smartwatch offers sleep tracking using a combination of accelerometer data and software tweaks available through watchOS 7.
