The new Apple Watch Series 6 has ability to measure blood oxygen levels

Apple's Series 6

Apple has just unveiled the new Apple Watch Series 6 at the Time Flies September 15th Event—the most "colourful" watch series ever released. Though similar in terms of shape and design in comparison with the Series 4 and 5, the new smartwatch will run watchOS 7, which Apple revealed at WWDC earlier this year.

Since the release of the 1st generation Apple Watch in 2015, Apple has expanded health-tracking features, such as a heart monitor, has water-proofed it for swimming and has added the ability to track various activities from yoga to running.

Apple says Series 6 will measure blood oxygen levels using both red and infrared light around 15 seconds. The company says it is beginning large scale trials using the latest blood oxygen measurement feature to see whether it can detect when a person gets COVID-19. The Series 6 also includes the new S6 processor, which promises better output up to 20 per cent. It is based on the in-house A13 chip from Apple and brings the first significant upgrade to the performance of the Apple Watch since the Series 4, provided that last year's Series 5 model used the same S4 Chipset (rebranded as the S5 with other improvements such as a compass and a new display controller).

You can get the Series 6 edition in gold, graphite, blue, or a new Model (RED) that has a striking red finish on it. Apple claims the aluminium models, like the newer MacBook Pro versions, are made of 100 per cent recycled aluminium. Apple is also introducing a new brace called the "Solo Belt," made from one piece of silicone, without any buckles or modifications.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is starting at $399 ~ GH₵2300, the same price as the outgoing Series 5. It is available from today 15 September and will start shipping on Friday 18 September.
