At its Time Flies event, Apple has launched its first-ever affordable smartwatch model, named Apple Watch SE. This new model looks pretty similar to the other, more premium watches in the company’s portfolio and will succeed the Series 3 that was launched three years ago. Of course, the lower price tag is the biggest USP of the new Watch model. Key features announced at the event include real-time altitude measurement, sleep tracking, S5 chip, etc. However, we do not know at the moment if any major features are missing from the Apple Watch SE. At the event, the company also launched its flagship Apple Watch Series 6.

Apple Watch SE price

Apple Watch SE prices in India start at Rs 29,900 for the GPS-only option and Rs 33,900 for the GPS + Cellular variants. This is rather steep considering the $279 (about Rs 20,500) price tag of the watch in the US, but not really a surprise. The company says it will release the smartwatch in India “soon” via authorised resellers. Bands, including the new Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop, will also be launching soon.

As mentioned earlier, Apple Watch SE will take over the position that was occupied by the Series 3 Watch till now; however, the brand will continue to officially sell the Series 3 models but at a lower, $199 (roughly Rs 14,500) price tag.
