The Apple Watch SE is the most exciting Apple Watch in years

Apple may not have revealed the iPhone 12 during last night's 'Time Flies' event, but it was still a jam-packed hour of product announcements. The brand new iPad Air and cutting-edge Apple Watch Series 6 may have turned the most heads, but there was another unexpected announcement that could be the most exciting of them all: the Apple Watch SE.

While the Apple Watch has been the king of wearables for a good few years, the device isn't exactly known for its affordability – until now, that is. At just $279/£269, the SE is the cheapest new Apple Watch in years – and that doesn't mean it scrimps on features either.
