Apple may release a cheaper version of the Apple Watch with a focus on health

Apple is sometimes criticized for the fact that the company sells its smart watches are too expensive. Even after the release of the Apple Watch Series 5, the company dropped the price of the Apple Watch Series 3 to 199 dollars in the United States (15 990 rubles in Russia), the current model still costs twice more. Of course, Apple can’t just pick up and start selling the flagship Apple Watch 20 000 rubles, but, according to analysts, the company may release a new model in this price range. Just “budget” the watch will have limited functionality.

This statement was made by the analyst of company Bernstein, who offered the Apple to sell the current model of the Apple Watch for $ 250. According to him, this will help the Corporation to sell in 10 times more hours than now, and thus make the device that will not perform as many functions as “the use of smartphones for health monitoring”.

According to our calculations, Apple has the ability to offer less expensive (say, less than 250 dollars), more simple (especially for elderly), aimed at maintaining the health of the wearable device. Such a clock could be positioned as a key device health monitoring that could alert users about potential health problems.

Cheap Apple Watch

In other words, Apple may start to sell Apple watch is available to elderly users with advanced functions of health, which will be able to track a sharp drop, serious problems with the cardiovascular system or blood circulation, blood sugar levels or perhaps even a coronavirus. Removing some other functions and adding the necessary for monitoring health. For example, in the Apple Watch Series 3 there are quite a few advanced features, but they lack support for some of the more modern features, such as ECG and fall detection of the user.

We believe that this market has incredible potential. It’s almost 500 million additional buyers of the Apple Watch, concluded analysts at Bernstein.

Actually the idea is very interesting, and maybe even Apple will take it on Board. The company pays very much attention to health functions in Apple Watch, but the high price does not allow many hours to buy this accessory.

What’s new in Apple Watch 6

One of the main features of the Apple Watch this year may be the determination of the level of oxygen in the blood. Code found in iOS 14, suggests that the Apple Watch 6 will get this feature.

This function will work the same as existing, like tracking heart rate watchOS. If the Apple Watch will detect the level of oxygen in the blood below a certain threshold, the user will receive a notification. Apart from the function of determining the level of oxygen in your blood, Apple also develops additional features of the electrocardiogram (ECG) for the Apple Watch Series 6.

For Apple the health care market is indeed very promising, especially in the context of a pandemic, when many began once again to donate blood and to monitor their performance. Well, do not forget that any commercial company the main thing is to make money. With the end of 2017 to the present time the income from the category of “Wearable products/Products for home/Accessories” is continuously growing, mainly due to the Apple Watch and the AirPods 2/AirPods Pro. As of the first quarter of 2020 wearable devices bring the Corporation significantly more moneythan a year ago. Not only that, Apple’s revenue from this category amounted to 10 billion dollars over the next 3 months, so he also for the first time was higher than the profit obtained from the sale of Mac computers. According to Apple, 75% of buyers of the Apple Watch in the holiday quarter for the first time I bought a smart watch “Apple” of the manufacturer.
