Following the release of the Apple Watch, which Apple proudly declared to be the world’s best-selling smartwatch, the company unveiled the Apple Watch Series 2.
The overall square design is similar to the original and this time, it’s water resistant for up to 50 meters, powered by a dual-core S2 chip, 50 percent faster cores, 100 percent better GPU and a 1000 nit display — the brightest display featured in any product Apple has shipped.
In addition to being “swim proof” and running watchOS 3, Apple has included build-in GPS to the Watch Series 2.
As for pricing, Apple Watch Series 2 will come in gold, rose gold, silver or space grey aluminum, or silver or space black stainless steel starting at $489 CAD. In addition, the new ceramic Apple Watch Edition starts at $1649.
The original Apple Watch is now called Series 1, comes with a new dual-core processor, and will cost $359.
