We you Gadget Lab (and millions of people around the world) agree: If you have an iPhone, the Apple Watch is the best laptop for it. The question is just which version do you get? Last year, Apple announced its latest edition, the Series 7. The company is still selling the Series SE and the aging Series 3, but the much-loved Series 5 and 6 have got the boot. (However, you can still find them on sale.) All of these watches look more or less the same and have a rotating stable of features. Here we review which is best for you and whether older models are worth the price.
Be sure to check out our other buying guides, especially our guides to the best iPad, Best Smartwatch, and Best iPhone.
Updated June 2022: We removed Series 3 and added information on possible upcoming watches.
