Apple Watch Series 6: What we know so far
Apple is expected to mainly launch the Apple Watch Series 6 today. The new wearable will reportedly come with a smaller battery than its predecessor as per rumors. While offering a smaller battery could impact the life of the Watch 6, rumors suggest that Apple could make the device power-efficient. Which ensures the Watch doesn’t need to pack a big battery. The two models, as per the listing, will get a 260mAh battery, which is smaller than the 296mAh battery on the Watch 5.
Talking features, the Apple Watch Series 6 might be able to monitor a person’s mental health. The smartwatch would be able to track stress levels, and even give panic attack alerts. The cited sources claim that Apple is currently having internal discussions about the watch’s ability to monitor mental health-related features. Other rumors include blood oxygen level detection and support for Wi-Fi 6.
