APPLE'S latest and greatest smartwatch is finally official – and it's called the Apple Watch Series 6.

The new gadget was announced alongside two new iPads and a cheaper 'Apple Watch SE' at a virtual event this week.

The headline feature is the fact that you can now measure blood oxygen levels.

It shines red and infrared light onto your wrist, letting you make sure you're not dipping too low.

SPO2, or blood-oxygen saturation, is a vital sign – a key measurement with critical info about your current health.

The Apple Watch will take readings in just 15 seconds, as well as taking period measurements throughout the day.

There's a new Blood Oxygen app on the Apple Watch Series 6, making it easy to check.

The Apple Watch Series 6 has a brand new S6 chip, based on the iPhone's A13 processor.

That should let it run more powerful apps, and hopefully improve battery life too.

Apple says that the Always On display is 2.5x brighter outdoors, thanks to the chip.

And there's a continuous altimeter, which will let you see your elevation change on a hike in real-time.

As mentioned before, you'll be able to take your blood oxygen levels too – which is important when hiking in high places.

Apple also said that you'll get the same 18-hour battery life as the last model, even with the new Blood Oxygen monitor feature.

Apple also showed off some new watch faces.

There’s a GMT watch face that shows loads of timezones at once, and a stopwatch face that’s great for runners.

But the most exciting new watch face is the Memoji face, which puts your own animated emoji on your wrist.

Developers can also make their own faces, with examples including faces for surfing or photography.

Apple Watch fans will be pleased to hear there’s a new strap called the Solo Loop.

It comes in silicone and braided styles, and it looks…pretty good?

Apple’s Jeff Williams says it’s the most comfortable strap yet, but we’ll have to test that claim ourselves.

4 Apple Watch Series 6 release date and price

Apple’s new Series 6 smartwatch is $399 – or £379 in the UK.

You can order it right now, with shipping from Friday, September 18.

And it comes in new colours, included a blue aluminium case and Apple's ProductRED.

Musk Implies Tesla Must Make Own Battery Cells to Meet EV Demand

(Bloomberg) -- Tesla Inc. will need to start producing its own battery cells in order to meet demand for its electric vehicles, even as it ramps up purchases from outside suppliers, Elon Musk said in a tweet.

© Bloomberg A logo is displayed on a Tesla Inc. electric vehicle charging at the Tesla Supercharger station in Fremont, California, U.S., on Monday, July 20, 2020. Tesla Inc. is scheduled to release earnings figures on July 22.

Musk, Tesla’s chief executive officer, made the comments on the eve of the company’s annual shareholders meeting and “Battery Day” presentation Tuesday, which is expected to showcase innovations designed to maintain Tesla’s lead in electric cars.

Shares of the company fell as much as 8.4% in postmarket trading Monday after closing at $449.39. Musk said what Tesla announces at the event won’t reach high volumes of production until 2022 and will have an impact on planned output of its semi truck, Cybertruck pickup and new Roadster sports car.

Tesla’s most longstanding partner on batteries has been Osaka-based Panasonic Corp. The two companies jointly operate a massive battery plant outside of Reno, Nevada: Panasonic makes the cells, and Tesla strings thousands of cells into the massive battery packs for each car. But Musk has never been keen about depending on one supplier, and Tesla does have smaller-scale agreements with Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., or CATL, in China’s Fujian province and LG Chem Ltd. in Seoul.
