The Apple Watch's first major hardware upgrade is surely a spectacle to most people. For one, the display is two times brighter, so you will be able to read it better outside. It's also 50% faster than the previous version and it's finally waterproof.
It has also become one of the smartest fitness trackers you can put on your wrist. The new Apple Watch is heavily focused on monitoring one's own activity - an area Apple says early adopters have praised most. It's definitely a bang for your buck.
Here are 3 reasons the Apple Watch Series 2 is Worth Buying:
The Apple Watch Series 2 comes with two main options for its body: aluminum or stainless steel, which can be paired with a variety of sporty, leather or nylon bands. You can't take it for a swim, but the new software makes it a cheaper way to test-drive the other new features. Meanwhile, watchOS 3 is all about customization. There are new watch faces, and as well as integrating iMessage Stickers, more notifications as well as fitness functionality.
You can get a calendar, email, and text notifications, but where the Series 2 succeeds most is the fitness-tracking capacities. Fitbit has long dominated the fitness tracker industry, but the Apple Watch can now do just about everything that Fitbit's top trackers can do, and so much more.
The Apple Watch's GPS integration is an awesome perk for runners who would prefer not to bring along an iPhone. Unlike other trackers with built-in GPS, the Apple Watch uses locally stored satellite data to quickly identify areas and locations. It takes a bit longer to get this feature going on other trackers.
We dunked it in water several times, and the promise held true. You don't have to switch on a special mode when it's submerged in water, but there is a water lock display feature that can be used while you're swimming, so you don't accidentally hit the screen and stop a workout.
