The great mystery surrounding this renewal was undoubtedly its launch date but any kind of doubt has already been cleared, as Apple has announced the new Apple Watch Series 6 a few minutes ago.

Apple Watch Series 6 Features
The Apple Watch helps many people in their day to day both in terms of health and productivity. That is why despite the fact that Apple has remained totally conservative in its design, interesting new features have been included inside. This makes it one of the best Apple Watch currently thanks to its processor and the news that we will discuss below.
Oxygen saturation measurement is now a fact. This is a valuable piece of information along with the heart rate to be able to assess the physical state of a user and act quickly in the event of pulmonary embolisms among other pathologies. It is achieved through new sensors on the back that emit infrared light to estimate the color of the blood in order to determine the level of oxygen saturation in the blood in just 15 seconds. In addition, measures will be taken while sleeping to have data upon waking.
This new blood oxygen measurement sensor has been integrated into numerous research studies that focus on diseases such as asthma or heart failure. This sensor is joined by a powerful new sixth-generation S6 processor that works 20% faster than the previous generation. In addition, the Always On Display improves in this new generation by allowing it to be always on with 2.5% more brightness. The altimeter will always be active.
