Check out IFixIt's teardown of the Apple Watch Series 6

Our friends at IFixIt bought an Apple Watch 6 the second it became available and took it apart to see what makes it tick, or not tick, I guess.

  • Outward comparison of the Series 6 (right) with its one-year-old sibling (left) reveals only subtle differences, but that's what teardowns are for. These details we already know:
  • LTPO OLED Retina display optimized for always-on functionality—this time without Force Touch
  • 64-bit dual-core Apple S6 SiP (System in Package)
  • Updated sensor array measuring heart rate, ECG, and now blood oxygen levels
  • Compass and realtime altimeter
  • Water resistance to a depth of 50 meters
  • Today's teardown victim is a 44 mm GPS + LTE model, purchased at retail in Germany—but we've also got a 40 mm model that may make a guest appearance, should any interesting comparisons arise.
