Rumor: Apple Watch SE without ECG to launch with a more affordable price

Apple will launch its new Watch Series 6 and iPad Air in the upcoming Apple event on September 15. Along with Watch Series 6, the company could also launch a more affordable Apple Watch. Leaker Jon Prosser hints some of the specifications of this new budget Apple Watch via his recent tweet.

Prosser states some specifications which could possibly become part of the upcoming Watch. The Watch could be named as ‘Apple Watch SE’ after the iPhone SE, which was a budget iPhone launched earlier this year. Although in his new Tweet he mentioned that the new Apple Watches to be listed as Apple Watch and Apple Watch Pro.

We are using this as a design/concept. This is not a leak or prototype.

Further, he mentioned the code names and size in which it could possibly come in. As mentioned above, this new budget Apple Watch could come in two different sizes of 40mm and 42mm. But later on, he corrected the size from 42mm to 44mm.

In addition, he also mentioned that the design of the Watch could be similar to the old Series 4. The Always-on display and ECG features may not be available in the Watch. Apple excluded these features to reduce the cost and the Watch could feature an older M9 chip.

Prosser does not mention any details about the pricing of the Watch but we can expect this Watch to come at a decent price as the Watch comes with minimum feature compared to the Pro version.
