Which is Better?

The Cellular model is a better smartwatch than the GPS model. It’s a standalone smartwatch that allows you to make and receive calls directly from the watch. It also features the new Family setup that allows more than one Apple Watch to be managed from a single iPhone, and it also features incidental fall detection that allows you to get help real quick when the Watch 6 detects a hard fall.

The GPS model is a cheaper alternative, it a comprehensive smartwatch having all the features present in the Cellular model except for the few exceptions.
