Apple Watch Series 2

Sep 7, 2016

Category: Tech

Apple’s original Watch completely revolutionized the world of smart watches. What were once simple and seemingly fleeting oddities became a real viable product thanks to the same gusto and careful consideration that Apple gives to all of their products. Despite having come out over a year ago, their original wrist accessory still holds the top spot and there are few in the way of feasible contenders. But that didn’t stop Apple from announcing a new iteration of their device, the Series 2.

Though it looks somewhat similar there are a number of more advanced features that really set this watch apart. For starters, this iteration is far more customizable through Apple themselves. For the athletes, there’s a comprehensive onboard workout app, a heart rate monitor, and built-in GPS which is all available without the need to bring your iPhone along for the ride. But, if you’re tied to your old workout apps, they’ll still work on your new device. They’ll even sync with Apple’s new Air Pods so you can stream music right from your Watch. And, if you like to take to the waves (or even just a kiddie pool), the Series 2 is water resistant up to 50 meters. It’s available for presale now and will be released on September 16th. [Purchase]
