The Apple Watch SE has most of the same features of its counterparts for a much lower price tag. It's swimproof, has fall and crash detection, and provides heart rate notifications — to name a few. The SE is available in midnight, starlight, and silver colorways with matching bands. It's a good choice for someone who wants the look and benefit of a smart watch without paying for any extras. Plus, you can use your savings to get an Apple Watch screen protector or case.

Depending on what you want an Apple Watch for, you may never even notice the few perks missing from the SE. Unlike the Series 8 or Ultra, it doesn't have a blood oxygen or ECG app. The two higher level watches also offer temperature sensing and IP6X dust resistance.
