APPLE unveiled the Apple Watch SE on Tuesday, a wearable gizmo loaded with top end features at an affordable price.
The SE is the California firm's cheapest smartwatch in years and is out this week – here's everything you need to know about the gadget.5The Apple Watch SE is one of two new bits of wearable kit announced by Apple this weekCredit: Apple Apple Watch SE – what is it?
The Watch SE is a new smartwatch announced by Apple on September 15 during a virtual event recorded at its headquarters in California.
It's cheaper than most Apple Watches have been at launch, in part because it's missing some of the pricier gadgets' bleeding edge features.
The SE was unveiled alongside the Series 6, Apple's latest top of the range watch with all the bells and whistles.
"The new model combines elements of Series 6 design with the most essential features of Apple Watch," Apple's Jeff Williams said of the SE.5Unveiled Tuesday during a virtual event, the SE is Apple's cheapest smartwatch yetCredit: Apple
"All at a more affordable price."
Launched in 2013, the gadget largely works as an extension of your iPhone, delivering notifications, making calls and sending texts.
However, later models have come with LTE connectivity (that means they link up to mobile network towers), allowing them to send and receive data as standalone devices without connecting to your mobile.Apple Watch SE – features and battery life 5The armwear houses many of the tools and apps we've come to expect from Apple Watches, such as fitness trackingCredit: Apple
The SE is a followup to the three-year-old Series 3, and shares many of the same tools and apps.
That means sleep and fitness tracking, a waterproof chassis and fall detection – a feature that calls the emergency services if you take a tumble.
The SE has up to two times better performance than the Series 3, Apple said, thanks to its upgraded S5 chip.
Like previous Apple Watches, battery life is roughly 18 hours, or a single day of use between charges.Apple Watch release history
Here's every smartwatch Apple has released to date...
- Original: April 24, 2015
- Series 1 and Series 2: September 16, 2016
- Series 3: September 22, 2017
- Series 4: September 21, 2018
- Series 5: September 20, 2019
- Series 6 and Watch SE: September 18, 2020
While it represents great value, the gadget is missing some of the Apple Watch's recent headline features, such as more detailed health tracking.
It can't take an ECG reading, first introduced in the Series 4, and can't track your blood oxygen levels, a feature loaded into the Series 6, which Apple also announced on Tuesday.
The watch will come with Apple's latest watch software, watchOS7, which adds brand new features – including sleep-tracking.
According to Apple, the system "provides valuable tools to help users get the desired amount of sleep, get to bed on time, and create a pre-bedtime routine to meet their sleep goals."
The watch can automatically detect when you're napping by tracking tiny movements that signal breathing during sleep.5Apple has introduced a bunch of funky new watch faces to play around withCredit: Apple
It builds a chart with this data to let users know the quality and timing of their shut-eye.
The new OS also has a feature that warns users if they've not washed their hands properly.
Using its motion sensors and microphone, the watch detects how long you've been washing your hands and alerts you if it's under 20 seconds.
"Washing hands properly for at least 20 seconds can help prevent the spread of illness," Apple said.
Apple Watch can also remind wearers to wash their hands when they get home from a trip out.Apple Watch SE – price and release date 5Apple now sells three watches: The SE (left), the Series 6 (middle) and Series 3 (right)Credit: Getty Images - Getty
The SE starts from $279 in the US and £269 in the UK for the non-cellular version. Despite lacking mobile data, it still comes with GPS tracking.
Until the SE, the cheapest Apple Watch at launch was the Series 1, which hit shelves at the same price back in 2016.
If you want the cellular version – meaning your watch can take calls and send texts without tethering to your phone – prices start at £319 / $329.
The Watch SE is available from September 18 from Apple's website and physical stores. Pre-orders opened Tuesday.
As well as Apple's various channels, the device will be available at major retailers such as Amazon and John Lewis.Apple Event 2020 - Check out the best gadgets from tech giant's 'Time Flies' product launch including new Apple Watch Most read in Phones & GadgetsALIEN INVASIONStrange footage of a 'UFO' hovering over New Jersey sends alien-hunters wildAPPLE CRUMBLEWhich iPhones are 'obsolete' and 'dangerous' in 2020?

PXG boasts largest release to date with 2020 fall/winter collection
Stars who had babies and adopted children in 2020 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to lie in state at U.S. Capitol Friday after two days at Supreme Court PXG boasts largest release to date with 2020 fall/winter collection
COVID’s effects have been felt far and wide, and the golf apparel industry is no different. Renee Parsons, the president and creative designer of PXG Apparel, revealed what the 2020 fall/winter collection will look like for that company this season in a non-traditional way — at a virtual trunk show.© Provided by Golfweek
Her goal with releasing the collection amid the pandemic was to find “places where familiar friends sport classic designs, playfully reimagined for this new world.” PXG is traditionally known for its black and white chic designs, but with new added colors and prints this season, it accomplishes just that.
This is PXG’s largest release to date with more than 70 modern designs, featuring colors such as crimson and military green. Many of these pieces were designed for hybrid wear on and off the golf course.© Provided by Golfweek

PXG has explored more options of men’s bottoms featuring a camouflage printed short. The designers took an aerial view of Scottsdale National Golf Club (where PXG was born), zoomed in and created a beautiful, abstract camouflage print.
A men’s polo was introduced with a pattern of miniature golf flags. The polo has snap closures in lieu of buttons near the collar, four-way stretch, 50 SPF and moisture wicking material imported from Italy.
On the women’s side, the company released a stunning bomber jacket. A black jacket with a faux-fur white, detachable collar, with a leather PXG logo on the back. They have also recreated a similar look for men in military green and black. This jacket is perfect for a chilly day on the course or a fun night on the town.
Parsons was particularly excited about the collared dress she designed for the release. She felt there was a lack of polo’d dresses in the golf apparel world and she is confident that this dress will be a top seller with its contrasting design.
The past spring/summer collection was more golf-oriented. PXG had the goal to evolve into more of a hybrid line for this release.
The group pre-released 14 pieces of their fall/winter collection on September 17, and the official launch is set for mid-October.MORE:
