Apple Watch SE CEL, 40mm SG Alum Case w Black Sport Bd - Rglr MYEK2X/A review

★★★★ 3.5
You’re happy with the features on your pre-Series 4 Apple Watch but it’s too slow. Your budget doesn’t go higher than $350. You’re giving it to a child as part of Family Setup. You don’t care about blood-oxygen or ECG readings. You’re content to wear a blank screen on your wrist for most of the day.
Pros: 
  • Design and display is identical to the Series 6
  • Price for the LTE model is 50% less than Series 6
  • Processor and LTE are pleasantly fast
Cons: 
  • Lack of always-on display is glaring
  • Doesn't have next-gen health sensors
  • Battery life is only adequate

★★★★ 4.0
Like with iPhone, Apple Watch is a family now, with 2020 bringing two new models targeting not only different price points but very different users, too. More affordable of the two, the Apple Watch SE bridges the gap between the flagship Apple Watch Series 6 and the cheapest Series 3 from 2017.
Pros: 
  • Affordable balance of features
  • Excellent battery life
  • Family Setup could be a game-changer
Cons: 
  • No always-on display
  • Advanced health-tracking needs a Series 6 instead

  • Comprehensive health tracking
  • Responsive
  • fluid performance
  • Reliable
  • easy-to-use software

While the new "SE" moniker attached to the Apple Watch SE has no official designation, I'd like to think it stands for "surprise edition" because that's what the Apple Watch SE is — a pleasant surprise.

Apple’s smartwatch lineup has gone from straightforward to surprisingly complex seemingly overnight. Where we used to have this year’s model or last year’s model at a lower price to choose from, now Apple is selling three distinct Apple Watch models at varying price tiers and with varying options.
Pros: 
  • Fast performance
  • Great smartwatch software
  • Reliable battery life
Cons: 
  • No always-on display
  • No third-party watch faces
  • No ECG or blood oxygen monitoring

  • Comfortable
  • wearable design
  • Clear and bright screen
  • Great background health features
  • Excellent fitness tracking overall
Cons: 
  • No always-on screen

★★★★★ 4.5
It might not be the best Apple Watch in terms of features, but for most people the Apple Watch SE is the one you should buy. It retains all the vital tech (IP rating, GPS, sharp OLED) and ditches the ones that make the most sense.
Pros: 
  • Excellent value
  • Huge range of tracking features
  • The best smartwatch OS around
  • Wide variety of straps available
Cons: 
  • No always-on display
  • Battery life still only really a day

The Apple Watch SE lacks key features that the Series 6 and other competing smartwatches boast, including ECG and SpO2 monitoring, but if you're not too fussed about the advanced metrics those offer, the SE is the perfect entry point into the Apple Watch family.
Pros: 
  • Premium design and build quality
  • Fall Detection
  • watchOS is a joy to use
Cons: 
  • No always-on display
  • Lacks ECG or SpO2 monitor
  • 18-hour battery life

The Apple Watch has a lot to offer. Sure it lacks the blood oxygen measurement and ECG abilities of the Apple Watch 6, but those probably only matter to you if you have a condition that requires monitoring.

The Apple Watch SE is almost a resounding success, but is let down by one cut corner too many. It has all the major features that make an Apple Watch good. Excellent notifications, pin-sharp haptics, snappy performance and good battery life.

★★★★ 4.4
The Apple Watch SE packs plenty of modern smartwatch features into a compact, low-profile package. It’s not the prettiest watch, and its sleep-tracking reports aren’t as insightful as the competition. But for the price the Watch SE is an excellent starter smartwatch for newcomers.
Pros: 
  • Powerful OS
  • Responsive performance
  • Comfortable design
  • Comprehensive features for the price
Cons: 
  • Sleep tracking lags the competition
  • No always-on display

★★★★★
The packaging around the new Apple Watch SE is typically slick, and now pretty thin. That’s because there is no plug for the wall included – you just get the puck-like charger on a USB-A cable. As you can see, the watch itself and the strap come in separate boxes which are then wrapped into one.

It’s not the best Apple Watch, but it's the most easily recommendable. The Apple Watch SE is anything but a ‘cheap Apple Watch.’ It brings the brilliant core experience that most people want, for less.

  • All the essential features
  • Competitive price

★★★★ 4.5
At the end of the day, the Apple Watch SE is nothing new. Apple just took the Apple Watch Series 5, cut off the always-on functionality reserving it for the more expensive Series 6, and also did not include an ECG and blood oxygen sensor.

  • great deal on cellular model
  • Fast performance
  • Great variety of high-quality watchfaces
  • Very comfortable to wear
  • Very accurate heart rate measurements for a smartwatch

  • No ECG
  • no blood oxygen sensor
  • Does not work with Android phones

I’ve had a few people come to me during the holiday shopping season asking about smartwatches. My first question is always “what kind of phone is the person using?” If it’s an iPhone, the Apple Watch SE is my number one recommendation. It’s the best Apple Watch for most people.

The Apple Watch SE is billed as entry-level, but it doesn’t actually sacrifice all that much compared with many top-of-the-line smartwatches, Apple or otherwise. The Series 3 features the same large display as the Apple Watch Series 6 and many of the same WatchOS7 features, including water...

★★★★★ 3.0
The mid-range Apple Watch SE is a very good smartwatch and gives you more than the Apple Watch 3, but it feels a bit pricey for what it offers. You’re not going to find a more well-rounded smartwatch than those made by Apple. From the design to the features, no other smartwatches come close.
Pros: 
  • Classic design, Huge app library, Large screen, Responsive
Cons: 
  • No always-on display, Lacks ECG and blood Oxygen monitoring, Mediocre battery life
