Apple unveiled its latest Apple Watch models at the virtual "Time Flies" event on Tuesday, and they're both available for preorder now.


The more expensive of the two is the Apple Watch Series 6, which is listed at $399. It comes in new colors and finishes; an always-on display; and more expanded health measurements, including blood oxygen detection. It has a faster A13-based processor—which is 20 percent faster than the Series 5 Watch. It also has a new stretchy loop band design, more sensors than earlier models, and a new Family Setup feature with more parental controls.

The Apple Watch SE is a more affordable option at $279, which is a more capable version of the $199 Series 3. It looks similar to the Series 6, but it has the largest and most advances retina display. The SE features the same accelerometer, gyroscope, and always-on altimeter as the Series 6, plus a bunch of health and safety capabilities, including fall detection, Emergency SOS, international emergency calling, and the Noise app.

You can preorder the Series 6 and the SE now on Apple's website. Both will ship on Friday, September 18th.
