1. Apple Watch Series 6 with blood oxygen monitoring feature
Basically, this is an upgrade not too much compared to Series 5 and Series 4. Apple Watch Series 6 with the outstanding feature is the ability to monitor the concentration of oxygen in the blood (also known as the SpO2 index). This is useful for detecting underlying heart and lung diseases – including the ability to predict the onset of the Corona virus. To this end, Apple is launching three health studies to rigorously investigate how the new sensor could be used for health applications.
The Series 6 is upgraded to a new Apple S6 chip that promises 20% more performance over its predecessor, as well as a ‘2.5x brighter’ display than the Series 5 at a retail price of $ 399. .
2. Apple Watch SE with more affordable price
Apple Watch SE owns many of the features of the Series 6 but only costs $ 279 (~ 6.5 million VND). Used last generation S5 processor, but still offers the latest sensors and follows the latest Apple Watch design with thinner bezels. However, the Apple Watch SE lacks the Series 6 blood oxygen sensor and ECG capabilities, so you may still want to consider the Watch Series 3 a reasonable option, as Apple will still sell that model for $ 199. (~ 4.6 million VND).
3. Apple Fitness +
One of the biggest reasons people buy an Apple Watch is for fitness tracking, and now Apple is taking that to new heights with its new Fitness + subscription.

Apple claims this chip “Up to two times faster than the best-selling Windows laptop”Therefore, older processors will be an issue for most buyers. The product is pre-ordered for prices starting at $ 329 and will go on sale from Friday, September 18th.
6. iPad Air is sleeker, more colorful
More interesting is the launch of the new iPad Air, which features a boxy design, thinner bezels, and USB-C support. Unlike the iPad Pro, the iPad Air comes in a variety of pretty colors, including rose gold, green and blue, in addition to silver and gray. Thinner bezels mean the Home button is gone, so Apple put Touch ID in the power button on the bezel of the device.
