Apple Watch SE Repair – iFixit

Keeping in line with Apple’s other SE devices marketed as “heavy on features, light on price,” the first-generation Apple Watch SE became available on September 18th, 2020, featuring the same design and display as the Apple Watch Series 6. Unlike the Series 6, though, the SE doesn’t have an always-on display—and internally, it uses the same processor as the Apple Watch Series 5.

The aluminum-only Apple Watch SE starts at $279 and comes in either Silver, Gold, or Space Gray. Like other Apple Watches, both GPS-only and GPS + Cellular models are available.
