Here Are All the Apple Watch Models Compatible With watchOS 6

Along with the announcement of the latest Apple Watch software, watchOS 6, Apple today confirmed which previous-generation Apple Watch models will be compatible with the 2019 software update.


Essentially, the only Apple Watch not compatible with watchOS 6 is the original "Series 0" device from 2015. Every Apple Watch that will support watchOS 6 can be seen below:
Notably, watchOS 6 will also require an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 13 or later. In terms of Apple Watch compatibility, these are the same models that watchOS 5 supports.

Like other updates announced today, watchOS 6 is available to Apple Developer Program members starting today, and all of the new features will launch to the public this fall. Apple does not offer watchOS as a public beta.

So my series 2 sports watch lives to fight another year. That was unexpected, though I will likely end up upgrading this year anyways.

I assume my series 2 will be so slow after this update that it will be unusable, but hoping Apple will prove me wrong.

*Series 0 - the first generation of Apple Watch is lovingly referred to as Series 0.[**]

The first generation (0) gold Editions can be broken down here:

Series 1 and 2 are a single generation; and then 3 and 4, separately and respectively.

**This makes trying to find an old Apple Watch on ebay absolutely insane.
