Apple Watch SE 2 released

At the "Far Out" conference held early this morning, Apple announced the new Apple Watch SE. An upgrade from the original SE, the new smartwatch is the company's second-generation entry-level cellular-enabled model. The new Apple Watch SE costs $249 for the GPS model and $299 for the cellular model, a $30 price drop from the original SE. The Apple Watch SE 2nd generation will go on sale on September 16th.

The Apple Watch SE will support the crash detection feature announced on the Series 8, and will be 20 percent faster than the first-gen SE thanks to the same new S8 chip found in the Series 8. It also has the same motion sensor. The new Apple Watch SE will be available in Silver, Midnight, and Starlight colors, with a new color-matched back.

Apple Watch SE will also support international roaming by pairing with the iPhone's roaming plan. It retains all the standard features of the original SE - Retina OLED display, optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, emergency SOS and water resistance up to 50 meters.

The cellular version of the Apple Watch SE is popular with parents looking to find a way to communicate with school-aged children without using an iPhone, and Apple has announced that the new Apple Watch SE 2 will work with Apple's Family Settings feature, which is available on the Apple Watch debuted on the SE.

This allows users to set up the Apple Watch SE with a parent or caregiver's iPhone. However, the device can operate independently. The cheaper Apple Watch Series 3 doesn't have that feature. The new Apple Watch SE also has a 30 percent larger screen than the Series 3.

Since its launch two years ago, the Apple Watch SE has been a solid choice for those looking for a more affordable wearable to pair with their iPhone. But it sacrifices some of the high-end features found on high-end models, such as an AOD display and a new temperature sensor, but at a significantly lower price.
