The second-generation Apple Watch SE is the cheaper Apple Watch, but it still provides comprehensive health and fitness tracking features such as heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and fall detection. Between the Apple Watch SE 2 and Apple Watch SE, you’ll want to go for the new version of the wearable device because of the extra processing power provided by the S8 SiP chipset, the updated accelerometer and gyroscope for better readings, and the addition of the crash detection feature that can call emergency services when it detects that the wearer was involved in a severe car accident.
