Apple Watch SE Review

Launched at the same time around as Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE is the more economically conservative option if you want to own an Apple smartwatch. This product is for the everyday people who would desire to own an Apple smartwatch but their financial position would stop them.

With almost similar features to Apple Watch Series 6, this watch comes at a more affordable price as low as Rs. 29,900 and could be bought with the EMI of Rs. 3,519 per month on the apple store.

It has the classic Apple smartwatch design, the slim rectangular display screen that curves gently into rounded corners but is bigger than previous models except for Apple Watch Series 6, this smartwatch, like many Apple products, is definitely a beauty to look at. It comes in Aluminum casing which is available in three different color options; Silver, Space Gray, and Gold.

The Aluminum does not give a cheap look but instead gives off a sophisticated look. The straps are interchangeable and come in many colors and varieties such as; Solo Loop, Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, Sport Loop, Leather Link, Milanese Loop, Leather Loop, Modern Buckle. A more in-depth review of these straps is given in our Review of Apple Watch Series 6.

Apple Watch SE has an optical heart rate sensor that is encased in black ceramic and crystal back. Coming in sizes of 44mm and 4mm, it accommodates every wrist size out there. The aluminum casing also ensures that it is lightweight and comfortable to wear. It has an Ion-X strengthened glass on top which would make the display free of scratches. It has the digital crown available for navigation purposes and a button on the right side that will bring up regularly used apps.


The display screen of Apple SE watch is bigger than the previous Apple watches such as Apple Watch Series 5; it also has a brighter display because of OLED technology. It has a second-generation optical heart sensor that measures your calorie burn, activity level, heart rate, heart rhythm, and more. The operating system WatchOS 7 has a sleep tracking program that will keep data on when you fell and woke up. The watch will detect any irregularities in health such as; abnormal heart-rate and inform you of them.

There is an SOS sending feature in it which is enabled by LTE. The watch has an accelerometer and gyroscope that will enable features such as fall detection. The watch is water-resistant and could be worn in swimming pools and shallow waters. It has an ambient light sensor that would make the display screen bright enough in any environment, though the watch does not have the always-on mode of Apple Watch S6. SE uses Apple's S5 SiP (System-in-package), same as Apple Watch Series 5. The watch has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery which Apple says will last you up to 18 hours.

Final Opinion

If you want an Apple Watch that has almost the same features like Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch Series 5 but comes in more affordable pricing, then you should definitely buy this. It would be a good way for keeping a track of your health and would also work as a high-end smartwatch with great features. This watch is a much more affordable option than any other Apple watch but still has great features that many other smartwatches don't have. It is stylish, cost-efficient, and has great Specs. The 'Standard Edition' in SE doesn't do it justice, there is nothing standard about the Apple watch SE.
