To aid the Apple Watch Series 2 in keeping itself waterproof, the speakers of the watch actually eject the water. There’s also the watch’s swim mode and monitoring of laps take and calories burned. Truly, it is a training device for any sport.
In terms of specs, the Series 2 powers itself with a dual core that’s 50% faster than the first Apple Watch, with a GPU that’s twice as fast and a better 2nd-gen display. At 1,000 knits, it’s the brightest display any apple device has had. There’s also built-in GPS for hiking, and apps such as VRanger can take advantage of this feature.
In terms of the outer build, the Series 2 comes with white ceramic material and is touted to be four times stronger than stainless steel. For the watch straps, Apple partnered with the renowned Hermes brand.
Speaking of partnerships, Apple also partnered with Nike to bring the Apple Watch Nike+, which is available in four colors. Apple considers the Nike+ variant to be the perfect running partner for the sports-minded consumer.
