TL; DR: Starting September 16, you can pre-order the new Apple Watch Series 6 from Best Buy, Amazon or Apple from $ 399. The cheaper series SE is now available for pre-order exclusively at Amazon and the Apple Store from $ 279.

2020 continues to surprise, but this time in a good way.

Apple did not unveil one, however two new smartwatches via livestream during the product event on Tuesday: the Apple Watch Series 6 and the cheaper Series SE. Both are available for pre-order from the Apple Store and Amazon from $ 399 and $ 279 (respectively) for an September 18 release, though we recommend shopping around if you’re interested in the Series 6. Here’s the situation:

Apple Watch Series 6

Here you can pre-order the new Apple Watch Series 6 and SE

Series 6 has several new features (compared to the Series 5 model in 2019), including an SpO2 sensor that can monitor the oxygen level in your blood and a lighter always on the screen with altimeter or altitude trace. There is also a snazzy new dual-core processor in the aluminum frame that makes it 20% faster than its predecessor, and faster charging that gives you up to 80% juice in just one hour. (Battery life is still around 18 hours for all-day use.)

Starting at $ 399 for the GPS version and $ 499 for one with LTE connectivity, the Series 6 is available for pre-order from Apple, Amazon and Best Buy. But if we were you, we would order it from the latter: Best Buy gives away a full six months of Apple Fitness + for free with the purchase of an Apple laptop, compared to the three free months you get with a pre-order directly from Apple. (Amazon does not display any Fitness + freebies on its product pages, FWIW.)

Apple Watch Series SE

Available in lots of cool new colors, Apple bills the new series SE smartwatch as a wallet-friendly alternative that does not save too much on specifications. The design is largely the same as in Series 6, only with a processor from last year and without a SpO2 sensor, always on the screen or heart rate monitor. (The ever-running altimeter, fall detection and Emergency SOS are still there.)

Pre-order one from Amazon or the Apple Store, starting at $ 279 for GPS only and $ 329 for mobile connectivity.
