At Apple Park (the company’s campus) today, CEO Tim Cook wasted no time diving into two new products: an iPad and the new Apple Watch Series 6.

Health has always been a big focus for the Watch, and it’s evident that Apple appreciates how important that is for customers.

The new watchOS 7 already featured hand-washing detection and sleep tracking, and this new Apple Watch takes health monitoring functionality even further.

Alongside Series 6, Apple announced the $279 (starting) Apple Watch SE and Series 3 will stay as the entry point at $199.

There’s also a USB power adapter included in the box for any of these Apple Watches, just the cable will stay.

And yes, before we dive in deeper: The Apple Watch Series 6 retains all the features from the Series 5 minus Force Touch.

Apple Watch Series 6 delivers blood oxygen monitoring right from your wrist.

Apple says a blood oxygen measurement can be recorded in just 15 seconds, done with an updated sensor on the rear of the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 6 will be running watchOS 7 out of the box and is powered by the S6 processor.

Apple also introduced Family Setup for Watch.

With this feature, an iPhone is no longer required for each functioning Apple Watch.

Family Setup will also retroactively work with Apple Watch Series 4 and later.

Apple Watch Series 6 starts at $399 for the 42mm GPS variant, and we’ll break down all the models below.

Apple also announced a second new Watch.

Like the affordable iPhone, the Apple Watch SE combines the best of Series 6 with affordability.

Apple Watch SE will start at $279, and Series 3 is staying at $199.

Apple clearly has smart exercise equipment like the Peloton in its sights with its Fitness+ service, announced today along with the new watches.

Starting the video on your device will sync with the Apple Watch and have it start tracking a workout.

Purchasing an Apple Watch gets you three free months of Fitness+.
