I bought this as an upgrade from the Series 2. I thought I may have some buyers remorse thinking I may not really need the upgrade. But boy was I so wrong! I love this new watch! It’s so much faster and more responsive. The battery is great and last all day. The build quality is nice and you can tell it’s a premium piece of tech. It’s pretty durable but I didn’t buy a case and screen protector but mainly because I can be rough sometimes. I did think about going with the Series 6 but there was only a few extra features and I know I wouldn’t have really used them. The money save was well worth it. Go with the Apple Watch SE!
After using it for a month now I have zero complaints. I barely need my phone for basic daily tasks such as texting, phone calls, maps/directions. The work out tracking is seamless. Walkie talkies is a cool app for randomly talking to friends. Control all of my Roku TV's with the watch too! Big thing is making workouts more interesting by being able to track your progress. I can't wait to use it in Colorado next month to track my ski trip
Good watch but not valuable. Without ECG or Blood oxygen detection, the price is still high. You know, it’s apple. There is always no value for most of apple’s products. But they are truly attractive......

At the end of the day, the Apple Watch SE is nothing new. Apple just took the Apple Watch Series 5, cut off the always-on functionality reserving it for the more expensive Series 6, and also did not include an ECG and blood oxygen sensor. TheFull Review
