Apple Watch ‘SE’ coming next week with Series 4 design

The rumor: A new, lower-cost Apple Watch with the design of the Series 4 is coming next week at Apple’s September 15 event, according to Jon Prosser (67.6% accurate).

  • The Series 4-designed Watch will come in 40 and 44mm sizes
  • But some major features from the Series 5 will be missing: both ECG and the always-on display won’t be present
  • An M9 chip will be inside

Our take: To me, these specs sound pretty much spot-on. It’s a solid balance between not as new as the Series 5 but not too old like the Series 3.
