This week on the SyrupCast Patrick, Brad, and Jon breakdown all of the news from Apple's September hardware event. The Series 6 is Apple's top-of-the-line smartwatch and includes blood oxygen level detection as well as the same always-on display as the Series 5. On the other hand, the Apple Watch SE is more of an entry-level mash-up of the Series 4 and Series 5.
