I bought the new Apple Watch SE in September after it was announced by Apple, and it was my favorite purchase of 2020.
Apple launched the midrange SE along with the most updated Apple Watch 6. I’d never owned an Apple Watch, or any smartwatch before, but at $280 the SE seemed like a reasonable option. The main feature it lacks form the more advanced model is the always-on display, but I’ve never found that to be a problem.
A minor tilt of my wrist has already become second nature to check the time, my fitness progress, or whatever else I need to see on the watch face. Since it arrived, I wear it nearly constantly, removing only to charge each day, usually while I’m in the shower.
Here’s how the Apple Watch SE became my best purchase of the year.
