“Apple Watch Series 6 completely redefines what a watch can do,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “With powerful new features, including a Blood Oxygen sensor and app, Apple Watch becomes even more indispensable by providing further insight into overall well-being”.
Expanding on the previous Apple Watch capabilities, the new Series 6 is the perfect piece of fitness tech for those who want to better understand their health. An exciting new feature measures blood oxygen saturation. Visible in the Health app, users can track trends over time to see how their blood oxygen level changes.
The always-on altimeter provides real-time elevation all day long by using a new, more power-efficient barometric altimeter, along with GPS and nearby Wi-Fi networks. This tracks small elevation changes above ground level, up and down to the measurement of 1 foot.
