The Expert Guide to Picking the Best Apple Watch for You

Selecting an Apple Watch was once straightforward, as one only needed to decide between a larger or smaller model. Traditionally, the Apple Watch lineup offered two options – a new top-tier model and an older, less advanced version. However, this changed in 2020 with the introduction of the budget-friendly Apple Watch SE. This low-cost option provides many of the same features as the flagship model but at a more affordable price.

However, cellular connectivity in Series 3 in 2017 added another layer of complexity. In 2020, Apple brought out the more affordable Apple Watch SE and the rugged Apple Watch Ultra, in addition to the Series 8 and a second-generation SE; making the right choice when purchasing an Apple Watch can take time, with so many options available in the market.

The Apple Watch offers many compelling benefits. As a fitness tracker, it provides valuable insights into your physical activity and health. It also streamlines everyday tasks such as navigation, communication through texts, emails, and phone calls, and even contactless payments. Moreover, the Apple Watch seamlessly integrates with your other Apple devices, serving as a handy extension of your iPhone, MacBook, and other products.

Apple has recently introduced the Series 8, a new SE, and the rugged Ultra sports watch. They are available at numerous online retailers, sometimes at a substantial discount. Despite their similarities in appearance, these watches offer varying features. This article guides you through selecting the most suitable option for your needs and determining if older models are worthwhile.

iPhone Watch Series 8

The Series 8 is a more rugged version and includes a quick charging capability, which charges the device to complete 33% faster. Both models contain the same S8 chip, so there are no variations in performance. However, the U1 chip equips the Series 8 Apple Watch with improved location accuracy, a feature not present in the SE. In addition, series 8 and SE come with Crash Detection, a component that alerts emergency services in case of an accident.

The watch case size remains unchanged, but the color choices for the aluminum models have been altered. Apple added silver to the color options for the aluminum models., removed blue and green, and changed the Product’s tone (Red). In addition, the new model can accommodate watchbands from Series 6 and 7.

Apple Watch Ultra

The Apple Watch Ultra is the most anticipated addition to the Apple Watch series, highly equipped with advanced GPS technology that uses dual-frequency tracking for precise location tracking, even in challenging environments like mountainous regions. Apple Watch Ultra is best for outdoor sports enthusiasts, the 49-mm case is made of durable, impact-resistant titanium and features a flat sapphire crystal display that is certified to the MIL-STD-810H military standard, ensuring its performance in extreme conditions. It is expected to be a formidable competitor to other GPS devices like Garmin.

In case of getting lost somewhere, this Apple Ultra watch helps to backtrack their steps through its specialized navigation features, such as a unique hybrid digital-analog compass app.  (Further features designed to transform the watch into a dedicated dive computer are expected to be released later this fall.)

iPhone SE

In its second generation, the SE features a back made of a nylon composite, making it cheaper by $30 compared to its predecessor. Despite this, it still supports several advanced features such as fall detection, emergency call, Fitness Plus, Apple Pay, and Family Setup. The only significant differences are the lack of an always-on display, an EKG sensor, temperature sensors, a SpO2 sensor, and a smaller display on both sizes. The 40mm version starts at $249, and the 44mm version at $279, with an additional $50 fee if cellular connectivity is required, along with carrier fees.

The Apple Watch SE boasts a unique feature called Family Setup that allows you to stay connected with loved ones who don’t possess an iPhone, specifically useful for children and elderly family members. This gives them the freedom they need while ensuring their safety in the event of an emergency or accident.

Iphone watch series 7

The Series 7 has a similar design to the Series 8 and includes several key features, such as the blood oxygen monitor, ECG capabilities for identifying heart rhythm irregularities, and sensors that can detect falls during physical activity such as walking, running, or cycling. Despite this, it does not have temperature sensors for determining ovulation history or g-force sensors for detecting car accidents.

The 7th generation Apple Watch offers a range of options in terms of materials and colors, including aluminum with finishes in green, blue, graphite, silver, and gold, as well as in material composite titanium and stainless steel are available. The Series 7 Apple Watch is not just a standalone offering, as it also forms part of special collections like the Nike and Hermès editions.. As you decide which version to get, keep your needs and budget in mind. There are options for GPS or GPS + Cellular connectivity, costing an additional $100.
