Where to Buy the Apple Watch SE
Announced at Apple’s ‘Time Flies’ event in September 2020, the Watch SE is the first time the company has targeted the more affordable market with its wearables.
Just like the iPhone with the same name, the Watch SE aims to provide the core Apple Watch experience while doing away with high-end features like an always-on display.
That means Apple has been able to cut costs, with the device starting at under £300/US$300/AU$450.
Having gone on sale on 18 September, the Watch SE is now available to buy on both sides of the pond.
How much is the Apple Watch SE?
Apple’s latest smartwatch is also its most affordable, starting at £269/US$279/AU$429. Full pricing is as follows:
- 40mm (GPS only) – £269/US$279/AU$429
- 44mm (GPS only) – £299/$309/AU$479
- 40mm (GPS + cellular) – £319/US$329/AU$499
- 44mm (GPS + cellular) – £349/$359/AU$549
A Nike version will also be available, starting at the same £269/US$279/AU$429 price.
While these prices are affordable by Apple’s standards, they’re in line with what you can expect from many entries in our best smartwatch chart. Competition comes from the likes of the Fossil Gen 5 and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, while the more recent Galaxy Watch 3 isn’t much more expensive.
