The Apple Watch Series 6 is here, and as Apple said during its Time Flies launch event, it is the most advanced smartwatch the company has built so far. The key highlight is, of course, the ability to measure blood oxygen saturation levels. The Apple Watch Series 6 measures that value by using a four LED cluster and an equal number of photodiodes. The LEDs shines a light on the blood vessels, while the photodiodes are used to measure the amount of light that reflects back. At this point, algorithms take over and measure the level of oxygen saturation in the blood. Aside from monitoring blood oxygen levels, the Apple Watch Series 6 can also measure ECG, heart rate, and other vital health metrics.
In addition to more firepower under the hood and vastly improved fitness capabilities, Apple has also introduced new color options for both the smartwatch as well as the bands that go with it.
