Starting at $279, the lower-cost Apple Watch SE features the same design as the Series 6, but with some features missing, including an always-on display, blood oxygen tracking, and the ECG app for detecting atrial fibrillation. Apple Watch SE is also powered by the previous-generation S5 chip from the Apple Watch Series 5.

Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE share a handful of features, including fall detection, a compass, an always-on altimeter, Emergency SOS with international emergency calling, high and low heart rate notifications, irregular heart rhythm notifications, water resistance up to 50 meters, the Noise app, and compatibility with watchOS 7.

Is MacRumors getting a kickback from promoting these "internet influencer" videos?
Why would it matter? They are demoing products the viewer wants to see, especially since these are some of the earliest videos showing the release of the product that no one else has. That’s really the point here behind these ‘first hands on videos‘. It’s really intended to demo what the Watch looks like v.s. Captured photos.

Lol no kidding.. most of these "influencers" offer absolutely no objectivity whatsoever.
Like that max guy or something recommending the MBA without proper thermals for "light typists".

Red/Blue watch looks cheap in my opinion and it’s sad since that’s also an exclusive watch.
Maybe not cheap, but they look Fisher-Price. I really like the Midnight Green color of the iPhone 11 Pro - too bad they didn't make an Apple Watch that color.
