Why Apple Watch SE will be my next watch
First-generation Apple Watch went on sale back in 2015. Much has changed since then. The expensive representatives of the Gold Edition line have gone into oblivion, in 2016 the first generation was replaced by Series 1, and in parallel Series 2 with its own GPS came out, in 2017 with the release of Series 3 our beloved company began to popularize the e-SIM standard in certain countries and position smartwatches as a fully functioning separately functioning gadget. All this time, I was very skeptical about smartwatches. Feedback from popular tech bloggers on YouTube and the experience of my friends who bought Series 2 and Series 3, made up in my mind quite a firm opinion that the Apple Watch is just a beautiful accessory for the iPhone, another expensive and useless toy from Tim and the team. This was until the Apple Watch Series 4 fell into my hands., released in the fall of 2018.
The newly enlarged screen, new wonderful dials prompted many to change their Series 2 and Series 3 for the current generation. I have to admit that the magic of Apple can really drive you crazy when you actually start using the product. After playing with my friend’s watch for three days, I really fired up, but there was no money for a new gadget, and I agreed to buy it a used Series 3. Moreover, in fact, they functionally lost only in the size of the screen and the absence of new dials.
A year later, the Apple Watch Series 5 came out. But the budget again did not allow switching to them, and I did not dare to buy last year’s Series 4. And by the way, I did the right thing, because in 2020 there really is plenty to choose from.
Which Apple Watch is officially on sale
Today, the current line of smartwatches from Apple is represented by the following models:
- 2020 flagship Apple Watch Series 6;
- the budget novelty of 2020 Apple Watch SE ;
- 2017 model Apple Watch Series 3.
On the Russian website Apple Series 6 is offered from 36,990 rubles, Apple Watch SE – from 24,990 rubles, Series 3 – from 17,990 rubles. Thus, the difference in price between the flagship and budget models is RUB 12,000, and between the budget model and the 2017 model – RUB 7,000.
Where did Apple Watch 5 go?
At the same time, last year’s Series 5 model was discontinued, since now its analog is the SE model (albeit without the most important flagship function – Always On Display). And the Series 4 was discontinued last year so as not to compete with Series 5. But last year’s flagship watch can be easily found in reseller warehouses at reasonable prices. Another question, is it worth buying them after the SE model is released?
