What's New with Apple Watch Series 6

Some of the improvements in this series have made the new model, Apple Watch Series 6, more unique and compared to its previous models. It appears that there are significant improvements in health and fitness applications.

The main innovations come with the new Apple Watch 6 are as follows:

  • The oxygen sensor in blood and its application
  • Always on altimeter
  • Innovation in design

Let's take a detailed look at the most striking innovations of the Apple Watch Series 6:

Blood Oxygen Sensor

The most striking feature of Apple Watch Series 6 is its V02max feature. VO2 max refers to the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilize during your exercise. It aims to test the aerobic endurance or cardiovascular fitness of athletes before and at the end of a training cycle. VO2 max is measured in milliliters of oxygen consumed in one minute, per kilogram of body weight (mL/kg/min).


Apple Watch Series 6, which instantly measures the blood oxygen level, also stands out with its motion detection feature during sleep. Your blood oxygen level is one of the key indicators of an individual’s overall wellness. It can help you understand how well your body is absorbing oxygen, and the amount of oxygen delivered to your body. The new sensor and app in Apple Watch Series 6 allow you to take on-demand readings of your blood oxygen as well as background readings, day and night.

The new series continue to measure your blood oxygen level in the background, warning users when there is a significant decrease. Thus, they can quickly notice symptoms such as shortness of breath and asthma. It is especially helpful in this COVID-19 period.

Always On Altimeter

Apple Watch Series 6 uses a new, more power-efficient barometric altimeter with GPS and nearby Wi-Fi networks. Thanks to this newly developed feature called always-on altimeter, real-time altitude measurements are provided all day long.

For more precise metrics when you move, this new feature will always track your elevation changes in real time whether you are indoors or out. Whether you are trekking up a trial or going down a ski run, the new always-on altimeter will always be with you.

Innovation in Design and Environmentally Friendly Materials

It comes in red, navy, gold, and black options with its 100% recyclable materials. All Apple Watch Series 6 final assembly supplier sites are transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy for Apple production. Apple Watch Series 6 packaging is made with 100 percent recycled and responsibly sourced wood fiber

Always-On Retina Display

The Always-On Retina display of the newly released Apple Watch Series 6 is now significantly brighter outdoors when your wrist is down. Hence, with this great feature, you can see all the information on your watch face more easily than ever without having to raise your wrist to wake your watch.

The enhanced Always-On Retina display on Apple Watch Series 6 is 2.5 times brighter than the Apple Watch Series 5 when the wearer's wrist is down outdoors. In addition, users can now easily access the Notification Center and Control Center with the wrist down, touch complications and even swipe to switch faces without having to activate the watch screen.

WatchOS 7

With WatchOS 7, users will get a choice of seven new watch faces, including Stripes, Chronograph Pro, GMT, and Artist. In addition, developers can take customization to the next level. As we have discussed earlier, users will be able to edit new watch face configurations and share them with others.

Let's remind you of the new health and fitness features, including low-intensity Vo2Max, sleep monitoring, automatic handwashing detection, and new types of training, which helped users learn about their overall health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
