Consumers who have hoped that Apple will launch a thinner, lighter Apple Watch this time around might get disappointed that the Series 2 looks virtually identical to the Series 1. The second generation Apple Watch comes in the same 38 mm and 42 mm sizes as the previous model.
Compared with the Asus ZenWatch 3 or Samsung Gear S3, the 38mm model seems really small. The two new designs that stand out are a $1,249 white ceramic model and the Nike+ model.
The Nike+ that comes with a softer silicone band with a grid of holes punched into it, in black and lime green Nike colors. The bold colors and big text, the exclusive Nike watch faces, and the Nike Run Club app are just a few of the special features of the Nike+.
In terms of functionality, the Apple Watch Series 2 is waterproof, comes with a much brighter screen and has a 50 percent faster processor. The new WatchOS 3 makes it much easier to select apps that appear as little cards in the interface. An added GPS provides some benefits for runners and hikers.
According to Yahoo Finance, Apple Watch Series 2 responds well to the performance concerns. The wearable device is powered by a dual-core processor that provides a 50 percent increase in speed. The graphics chip in the Apple Watch 2 is twice as fast as the one used in the original iteration of the wearable device.
The faster CPU and GPU used in the Apple Watch 2 allow a much smoother user experience. Swiping from app to app is seamless and apps on the Series 2 open faster.
