With its new SE naming, Apple hopes to provide consumers with more affordable, feature-packed products. This is the case with this Apple Watch SE released at the end of 2020, which has found its place in Apple’s line up, stacked between the entry-level Watch Series 3 and the very latest Watch Series 7. And today, this watch that offers an almost premium experience is at a more affordable price thanks to this offer.

The advantages of the Apple Watch SE

  • The OLED screen and its design
  • WatchOS 7 still as intuitive
  • The same exercise features as other Apple Watches

Instead of 299 euros, the Apple Watch SE 40 mm, gold color is now offered at a price of 269 euros at Fnac and Darty.

The most balanced Apple Watch

After launching SE versions for its iPhones, Apple reiterated the concept with its Apple Watch. This watch, well located in the middle of Apple’s range, achieves the feat of offering decent design and performance without making too many concessions. The approach here is the opposite of that of the iPhone SE which put more power in an old design: here Apple came to take its best design (of the time) and lowered a few sliders in the right places. The Cupertino company gets rid of everything that is not essential to the experience here and thus offers a happy medium between its entry-level and its most expensive offer. The Apple Watch SE has the right to the same design that we found until the Apple Watch 6, which is no longer offered by Apple since the arrival of the Series 7. Here we find a square case with fairly thin borders and the famous Digital Crown for navigating the interface and summoning Siri. The screen remains an OLED panel that follows the contour of the watch, but it no longer has the Always On screen found on the Series 7. The Apple Watch SE uses an S5 processor but delivers a smooth experience thanks to WatchOS which is one of the most complete watch systems currently.

The same activity tracking as other watches, without the health sensors

Although this model does not include the flagship functions of its big sister such as the ECG sensors to know the cardiac activity or the oximeter which measures the oxygenation rate in the blood, this should not be too lacking for users of this watch every day. Because these will still have all the famous sports features that the Apple Watch benefits from. The Apple always has the well-being of its users in mind with this watch which houses the same sensors as its elder: accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS, compass, altimeter, to allow you to monitor your activity in a multitude of circumstances. Whether cycling, interval training, cardio, walking, running, yoga, dancing, rowing, badminton, basketball, Pilates, in the water (water resistant up to 50 m) or on land, this watch will follow you in all your activities. It will even let you track sleep if you’re ready to sleep with it on your wrist. According to Apple, this watch offers 18 hours of battery life, so it will last an entire day, or even two depending on your use. No fast charging here, it will take about two hours to fully charge the watch.
