Apple Watch Series 6 Review | Royal Blue Edition

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hey guys what is going on my name is jen and i'm here to help you understand your everyday tech one video at a time and today we're taking a look at the apple watch series six we can still go back there to a place with no cares we can turn this ship around we can turn this ship around all the way back home of course included in the box is the apple watch itself the apple watch magnetic charger with no power brick this time

And if you notice that there was no crispy plastic in this unboxing it's because i used apple watch studio to get a custom band this is the charcoal sport loop so first things first let's talk about the display on this device it comes in two sizes a 40 and 44 millimeter it's the same overall design as a past couple apple watches except with some new colors like this blue aluminum and the product red of course just like last year's apple

Watch the series 6 continues that always on display that was first introduced in the series 5. this is when if you're not looking directly at the watch it no longer just powers down the display it will still show information like the time or the widgets that you have set up without you needing to directly raise your wrist to your face to see it and it automatically knows when you have taken off your watch to set it down or put it on the charger to power off the display completely

So like if you're trying to sleep it doesn't light up and keep you awake which is really nice the new processor improvements have allowed the always on display to be brighter than before apple claims it will be at least 2.5 times brighter than the series 5 always on display when you're not looking straight at it keep in mind that apple has removed 3d touch from the apple watch series 6 so now the old gestures to like custom watch faces or clear your notification center are just kind of all over the place some

Things are buttons some things are long holds and even if you updated your older apple watch to watch os 7 you can no longer access force touch regardless of whether or not your watch actually has it built in so yeah that kind of sucks speed is not an issue when it comes to the series 6. apple claims that the new s6 processor is 20 faster than the series 5 processor which by the way is actually the same as the series 4 processor but anyway

In my testing apps are noticeably more responsive than my apple watch series 4. everything from doing complications using siri tracking workouts everything just feels that much faster i would not say it's a drastic difference because the series 4 was not slow by any means but it's definitely noticeable i also noticed that when you're doing a lot like tracking workouts the series 6 gets noticeably less warm than the series 4 which is due to the more efficient processor so i

Think that's a nice addition in case you haven't heard already the newest feature with the apple watch series 6 is the blood oxygen sensor you can actually see the new sensors on the back of the apple watch whereas before you only had the green lights that monitored heart rate now you also have red and infrared lights that monitor blood oxygen and when i say blood oxygen i mean the concentration of oxygen in your blood but honestly i would take this feature with a grain of salt

Because this is still not a professional medical device so if you need to diagnose an issue please go to a doctor do not rely on the apple watch and if it ever says you got an unsuccessful measurement that just means you need to tighten your watch band and keep your wrist level while you're performing the test because that can affect the accuracy of the test apple has also improved the heart rate sensor in the apple watch series 6 as well this is the second generation

Optical heart rate sensor so even your standard heart rate measurements throughout the day will be much more accurate and of course it still has the ecg first introduced in the series 4 and i'm sure you've seen news stories out there of apple watches saving people's lives or detecting irregular heart rhythms so if you're somebody who needs this type of monitoring on your wrist then i would highly recommend this apple watch the apple watch now natively supports sleep tracking so you don't have to

Download another app to do this personally this is not something i would ever use because i don't like to share my bed with technology there's also a new feature called the hand washing timer so if you turn this on inside your settings or in the watch app it will now automatically detect when you're washing your hands and remind you to wash them for at least 20 seconds it will show up with a timer and if you stop washing your hands it will remind you to keep going

Don't worry this isn't gonna trigger if you're just rubbing your hands together or anything else by the way if the video has been helpful so far um be sure to leave a like that would be tremendously helpful and if you didn't know youtube doesn't actually notify you of new videos if you just hit the subscribe button you have to hit the bell icon as well which is i don't know kind of weird but so be sure you hit that subscribe and the bell to be notified of new uploads now for

The most part these sensors don't give you any new workout tracking options they're really just there to increase accuracy in other words you're going to get the same type of workout options on the series 5 and series 4 but not the series 3 and older because they had older sensors so if you need workout tracking for ellipticals swimming hiking yoga dancing high intensity interval training all of that good stuff the apple watch still does an excellent job of keeping

Track of that for you as well as reminding you to be more active throughout the day and of course just like previous apple watches you get the activity rings that fill up as you do more activity throughout the day and you can challenge your friends to see their progress and see how you are horribly losing fun fact if you're like me and you like listening to music straight off your apple watch without using your phone or even having it nearby you can now do that with spotify so

You're not limited to just using apple music my all-time favorite thing to do on an apple watch is to get notifications i just find it super convenient to raise your wrist and see who in the world is texting you and decide if they are worthy of a response now you can even send me moji stickers right from your wrist as well which is great i guess but something i probably would never use so regardless of how great all of these features are what about the battery life because

Without that you ain't got nothing now in my experience i have done workout tracking i have just used the apple watch as an apple watch just getting notifications and looking at the time the battery life is about the same as my series 4 sometimes it can be a little bit worse if i'm using one of the new features like the blood oxygen monitor or if i have been messing with the always on display quite a bit standby time is not any better so if you take off your watch and leave it on a nightstand

You can expect and lose about 20 overnight if you didn't know watch os 7 actually gives you the battery health option just like on the iphone so if your maximum capacity on your old watch is below like 80 i would say you should upgrade your watch just so you can get that full capacity because once you dip below that point that's when your battery life starts getting really bad you can't hardly make it through the second day i will say that using the always-on display does seem to drain my battery quite a

Bit especially if i'm in a bright environment i'm assuming because it's trying to pump that 2.5 times brightness that we talked about earlier you can go into the settings and turn this off but honestly this is like the only major feature you can see on the series 6 so i don't know it's kind of weird so is this watch worth buying nah not this time personally i don't really use the ecg feature on the apple watch i've had it on my series 4

For two years now and i've only used it maybe twice and that was just to play around with it in fact i don't even think apple wants me to use it because they say you're supposed to be like 22 or older and i am not i also suspect that i will not use the blood oxygen sensor simply because i really don't need something like that and if you're somebody who doesn't need the ecg or the blood oxygen monitor i really don't see a reason to get this apple watch

Other than buying it specifically for the new colors so if you have an apple watch series 5 do not upgrade it is not worth it unless you specifically need the blood oxygen sensor even if you have an apple watch series 4 it's really not that big of an upgrade but if you're coming from a series 3 or older then yeah i would say this would be a significant upgrade but you can also get 90 of these features on the apple watch se so unless you really need the always on

Display and the blood oxygen monitor and the ecg i would not buy this apple watch instead go for the apple watch se i am going to be making a full review on that apple watch as well so be sure to stick around remember subscribe and the bell icon and if you're new to the channel welcome it is great to have you here i'll be back soon with another video but until then i will see you in the next one you
