Apple announced its new smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 6. The design looks the same as the Series 5, but it comes with a new blue and red case.

This can be used to determine in 15 seconds how much oxygen the user has in his or her blood.
A new, faster chip has been placed in the new Watch.
The display is 2.5 times brighter than in the Series 5. The Watch also has an altimeter and new clock designs have been added.

This allows multiple Apple Watches to be linked to the iPhone of a family member, for example those of children without an iPhone.
Parents can indicate which contacts children can connect with.
The location can also be tracked.
This position is not yet coming to the Netherlands.
Apple also announced a more affordable Watch.
This Apple Watch SE has the same size screen as the new watches.
The wearable has largely the same hardware as the Series 6, but uses the previous chip.
This device costs $ 279.
