We round up everything we know about the Apple Watch SE 2 that could arrive in just a few weeks.
The Apple Watch SE is an important model within the Apple catalog, in fact it is one of the most recommended Apple Watch models that you can buy this year. And after its launch in 2020 it has not undergone any update, however it seems that this year we will see a new second-generation model with important news.
The Apple Watch SE 2 could arrive in just a few weeks and it is a device that could include some important improvements over its predecessor. We’ve heard some interesting rumors and have compiled everything we know about the second-generation Apple Watch SE.
Design and size of the Apple Watch SE 2
The design of the Apple Watch SE is the same as the Apple Watch before the Series 7. And while we expect the Series 8 to feature a new design, the second-generation Apple Watch SE is unlikely to change its external design.
So we’re expecting the Apple Watch SE 2 to arrive in the same current design and size, so we’ll see versions of 40mm and 44mm. Perhaps where we do see a change is in the colors in which the new model is availableincluding the new Midnight and Star White that we’ve seen on other Apple devices.
Apple Watch SE 2 processor
The current Apple Watch SE has the S5 chip, the same one that came with the Apple Watch Series 5. Apple SE models are characterized by using an older design and the most powerful chip, so we expect the Apple Watch SE 2 arrives with the same S8 chip as the Apple Watch Series 8.
Especially considering that it is a model that will be on the market for several years. And that’s what Mark Gurman thinks.
The next-gen SE will keep the current model’s screen size, rather than going up to the Series 7’s larger size. But it may get the same S8 chip as the Series 8, an S5 upgrade from the current SE from 2020.
New Apple Watch SE 2 sensors
The Apple Watch SE has the basic health sensors of the first Apple Watches, so we don’t have a blood oxygen sensor or an EKG. It has been rumored that Apple plans to introduce a new temperature sensor in the Series 8, which will probably won’t make it to SE 2.
Therefore, It is not unreasonable to think that the new Apple Watch SE 2 could have both the Blood Oxygen app and the Electrocardiogram app.. It would be a very important step forward.
Will the Apple Watch SE 2 have an Always-On Display?
This is one of the main absences in the Apple Watch SE, which was probably not included to limit the differences with the Series 6 that was presented at the same time. We haven’t heard any rumors about it though it’s a difference Apple could keep so that its two ranges of watches are clearly positioned.
How much will the Apple Watch SE 2 cost?
As for the price, we do not expect too many changes. The Apple Watch Series 3 will finally disappear from the Apple catalog this year, so we will see a major restructuring in the range of Apple watches.
Therefore, the current Apple Watch SE will likely be positioned in the same price range as the Seres 3, and the Apple Watch SE 2 will be positioned at the same price as the current Apple Watch SE. Therefore, it should start from €299.
When will the Apple Watch SE 2 be released?
It seems most likely that the Apple Watch SE 2 is announced in September along with the new iPhone 14 and the Apple Watch Series 8. So we are very few weeks away from knowing it.
