Monitor even more of your health with the Apple Watch Series 6. The Series 6 adds pulse oximetry to measure your blood’s oxygen levels (SpO2) in just 15 seconds, as well as showing you your VO2 Max (maximum oxygen consumption) score. These indicators can provide early warnings to possible respiratory conditions. They are joined by an optical heart rate monitor and the ability to record your own ECG (electrocardiogram). The Series 6 can even detect and help you with healthy habits, such as hand-washing detection, which displays a 20-second animated countdown as you scrub.
Fitness is a large part of staying healthy, and the Apple Watch has a variety of ways to assist you in reaching your goals. Activity Rings displays three rings that correspond to movement, exercise, and standing. Stay mobile throughout the day to hit new personal bests as you close the rings. You can also choose from a variety of workouts, such as running, swimming, yoga, cycling, and more; with the watch recording and tracking their specific metrics. Whether inside or outdoors, the Series 6 can guide you via GPS and even provide continuous elevation updates on screen.
A wide range of watch faces are available for the Series 6 watch, including hobby-based faces that provide essential information for specific activities.

Three activity rings on the Apple Watch Series 6 are designed to help you measure all of the ways you move throughout the day.
Move: The Move ring tracks the active calories you burn. Active calories are the ones you burn through all kinds of movement, from taking the stairs at work to playing with the kids.
Exercise: The Exercise ring shows you how many minutes of brisk activity you’ve done, whether you’re working out or just moving at a fast pace.
Stand: Sitting too much has the potential to contribute to health problems over time. This ring is designed to keep track of the amount of times you stand throughout the day.
