Apple Watch Series 6 has lots of tiny updates over the Series 5, but none of them add up to a must-upgrade. It is the best smartwatch, but don't forget that Apple's other watches are also great. Plus, the blood oxygen monitor is unreliable. Dieter Bohn has the full review.

@Ryanoth Yeah, the refurbs are honestly not that great of a deal. Might as well just buy new at that price. I'm coming from a cracked series 3 FYI

Are all these other smartwatch features really so useful? You say Apple has the best smartwatch but my $70 Amazfit Bip lasts 30+ days, can play/pause music, counts steps and shows notifications. I really don't understand how the Apple Watch which is $300 more and has to be charged daily could possibly be a reasonable purchase.

I went from the 3 to the 6, it was a really nice upgrade. I love this big screen! And the always-on display. The other new things are nice. The 3 is still good enough to pass down, but the battery is getting weak. It is great having the watch in general, I recommend it to anyone with an iPhone. It’s nice to be able to leave my phone away longer since I can get calls or texts when needed. Just make sure to turn off almost all of the notifications! The fall detection is great peace of mind, glad the older relatives have the watch. I love tracking workouts with it.

He so wrong! It’s worth the upgrade to 6. Faster processor, u1 chip, bigger battery, O2 monitoring, updated sensors,

If you have a series 4 there is no need to upgrade either unless you walk around all day with your wrist in front of your face all day, your gonna have to lift your wrist to see the time, which makes always on a gimmick along with the blood oxygen sensor that you would use once or twice then forget it’s even on the watch, people don’t think these days, even the colors are useless if you have to cover them up to protect the watch from bumps and scratches, which you do.

4:51 wrong : SE is like series 3 not 4 in terms of sensors. The series 4 has the ECG. Series 5 has ECG + display always-on. SE has nothing but the speed of series 5. We shouldn't say Series 6 has an oxygen monitor because it is NOT accurate, not for medical usage. Yes, it is useless and might be dangerously misread.

My first gen Apple Watch works just fine in past 5 years. But with watchOS 7 release, many software drop the support for watchOS 4 so maybe it's time to get a new Apple Watch. I think I'll get the official refurbished series 5.

Very honest about blood oxygen sensor, As always honest and straight forward review
tedwardrick 22 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
Blood oxygen is fairly new for smart watches, before Apple Watch Series 6, only Gamin started to put pulse oximeter to measure your blood oxygen level in 2018 in their Fenix 5 Plus lineup, it makes more sense since it’s a multi-sports smart watch, climbers and some other sports might find it useful, it also use blood oxygen readings in their sleep tracking (takes a reading every hour), it also uses the readings to estimate how tired you are, for example if your blood oxygen level aren’t that great during your sleep, you probably didn’t sleep well.

Im on an S4, I'm waiting for the S7 to come out unless it breaks. Also, so many other people are doing the same thing, so if anybody reads this message and has a usable s4 or s5, keep it. But you should upgrade if you have an s3 or lower if you use it regularly.

The reason why you’re getting the “unsuccessful measurement” screen is probably because of the band, I have the same one that you have but with the sport band and I haven’t gotten one unsuccessful measurement

S2 here, really hope blood oxygen get more accurate, but S6 was not. So let wait for S7. my S2 still work well and battery life can take it for a day: Included a 60 minutes workout, full notifications, take some calls, also track my sleep with pillow app. Just need to charge it around 30 before goto bed and during breakfast in the morning, it’s ok for me. But, dang, always on display look so great! 😆

Conversely, I found the Blood ox sensor to be reliable and gave results within 1%+- of a 60 dollar dedicated sensor. I think the more honest observation about this feature would be "results may vary depending on user."

It's hard to ignore the power of branding when you see how many people spend their money on fitness trackers. If you want to track fitness because you're an athlete or have specific fitness goals, Garmin and Fitbit appear to sell products that perform basically the same tasks for much less. There's just not much very compelling about the Apple Watch.

Hey Dieter, Dave2D demonstrates that the blood oxygen monitor on the watch works better on your fingers lol. But the real reason why it’s not classed as a medical device is that unlike the USA, the ECG monitoring is practically not available outside the US, as each countries medical authority has to allow it for use.
