Apple Watch Series 8 and SE Review: New Sensors, Same Look

Deciding which Apple Watch to get just got a little more complicated. This year, there are three new Apple Watch models, each with a different mix of health, fitness and emergency sensors.

There’s the updated Apple Watch SE (starting at $249), the Apple Watch Series 8 (starting at $399) and a brand-new model, the Apple Watch Ultra ($799). This review focuses on the first two: the entry-level, second-generation SE and the Series 8 with more advanced health sensors, which I’ve been testing for the past few days. I’ll be reviewing the Ultra, the first Apple Watch with multiday battery life, soon.
