Apple Watch Series 6 performance and battery life.
Apple’s S6 chip is the latest in smartwatch technology. The Series 6 boasts a fast, fluid, and superior performance to any other smartwatch maker.
The battery life is excellent, if not the best. The Series 6 can last more than 36 hours with the Always-On Display active and sleep tracking enabled overnight. This includes two manual ECG recordings and two manual blood oxygen recordings. There are also lots of notifications and a 25 minute run.
Although the Apple Watch Series 6 is an incremental upgrade to the Series 5, there’s nothing wrong. Apple is able to make minor upgrades to its smartwatch lineup every few years without having to compete at the top-end.
The Series 6 has a sensor at the back that measures your blood oxygen saturation. This sensor is known as SpO2. It is necessary to activate the Series 6 manually and hold your wrist still on a table for at least 15 seconds.
The watch measures how oxygenated your blood is. It can also infer how well your body adapts to high altitude. This is why SpO2 sensors are often used in wellness settings. The sensor is used in many high-end running and triathlon watches.
Apple’s improvements include a faster processor and an always-on altimeter, which allows you to see your elevation in real-time. Also, the screen brightness will increase when your wrist is lower. This, along with many other improvements in watch series 6 , makes the Apple Watch Series 6 our Editors’ Choice.
