It’s the ultimate device for a healthy life.
Apple Watch can do what your other devices can’t because it’s on your wrist. When you wear it, you get a fitness partner that measures all the ways you move, meaningful health insights, and a connection to the people and things you care about most. And it’s always just a glance away.
Blood Oxygen. A breath of fresh innovation.
Your blood oxygen level is a key indicator of your overall wellness. It can help you understand how well your body is absorbing oxygen, and the amount of oxygen delivered to your body. The remarkable 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.⁴
Always on. Better than ever.
The Always-On Retina display is now significantly brighter outdoors when your wrist is down. So you can see all the information on your watch face more easily than ever — without having to raise your wrist to wake your watch. Swipe down for Notification Centre, swipe up for Control Centre, or tap complications in the wrist‑down state. No need to wake your watch for simple interactions when you’re in a meeting or otherwise occupied.
Sleep. A better day begins with a better night.
Getting the right amount of sleep is important for good health. The new Sleep app helps you establish a regular bedtime routine and keep track of your sleep trends night after night. So you can set and achieve your personal sleep goals.
See how you’re doing without missing a beat.
The Always-On Retina display is now 2.5 times brighter outdoors when your wrist is down. So even while exercising in bright sunlight, you can easily see your metrics without raising your wrist. Or breaking your stride.
For more precise metrics as you move, the new always-on altimeter continuously tracks your elevation changes in real time, indoors and out. Whether you’re hiking up a trail or bombing down a ski run.
ECG on your wrist. Anytime, anywhere.
With the ECG app, Apple Watch Series 6 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single-lead electrocardiogram.¹ It’s a momentous achievement for a wearable device that can provide critical data for doctors and peace of mind for you.
Your finger can tell you a lot about your heart.
Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. The ECG app can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.⁵
It has your heart in mind.
Unusually high or low heart rates and irregular heart rhythms (known as arrhythmias) could be signs of a serious condition.⁵ But many people don’t recognise the symptoms, so the underlying causes often go undiagnosed. Notifications in the Heart Rate app will alert you to these irregularities so you can take action and consult your doctor.
No more hide-and-seek with your phone.
