Description

Apple Watch SE 2 (40mm) – Full Smartwatch Specifications – Apple at its “Far Out” event on the 7th of September announced the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and Apple Watch SE 2. All three watches run on the WatchOS 9 out of the box, and the new operating system which also supports Apple Watch 4, 5, 6, 7, and SE brings new features such as the ability to track sleep stages, custom workouts, multisport workout, new watch faces, and a low power battery saver mode. The Watch SE 2 is the successor to the Watch SE which debuted in 2021. It’s a lower-end Apple Watch model that lacks an always-on display, blood oxygen measurement and ECG tracking, yet an outstanding smartwatch with many features.

The Watch SE 2 like its predecessor comes in two sizes; 40mm and 44mm. Each of these sizes is available in GPS-only and GPS+Cellular models. The cellular model is a standalone smartwatch that can make and receive calls without an iPhone. The SE 2 spots the same rectangular shape as Watch SE and its available in only aluminum build unlike the Watch 8 which is available in stainless steel and aluminum materials. The straps are made of silicone and can be swapped.

Rated 5ATM, the Watch SE 2 is waterproof up to 50 meters. It’s available in three colors; midnight, starlight and silver colors. The 44mm unit has a 1.78 inches display size while the 40mm unit has a 1.57 inches display size, both are powered by LTPO OLED display with brightness up to 1000nits. It leverages a touch-sensitive screen, a physical button, and a digital crown to offer effortless navigation.

In the fitness department, the Watch SE 2 is able to track steps, calories, distance, sleep, and heart rate. It welcomes a more powerful 256g accelerometer that enables crash detection. It also features incidental fall detection like its predecessor. Meanwhile, with WatchOS 9, Watch SE 2 welcomes new features such as heart rate zones, more running metrics, multisport workouts, custom workouts, and a new medication app.

The Watch SE 2 has a speaker and microphone like its predecessor and it’s able to make and receive calls. The Cellular model can make and receive calls without a phone. It’s also equipped with an NFC chip that enables non-contactless payments via Apple Pay in supported countries. It packs a 32GB massive storage capacity that lets you add enough music to the watch which you can listen to offline.

The Watch SE 2 like its predecessor will alert you when you receive a notification on your phone and it will also allow you to reply to notifications using your voice, dictations, and emojis or type the reply directly using the built-in qwerty keyboard.
