Apple Watch Series 2: all the new features


After reminding us of all the new features of watchOS 3, Apple wasted no time and introduced the second generation Apple Watch! Called the Apple Watch Series 2, the new gizmo looks very much like the old generation, and it'd be pretty hard to discern the two from afar.

But rest assured that the Apple Watch Series 2 does bring a bunch of upgrades — enough to make it hard for newcomers to choose a cheaper 1st generation unit over a shiny new one. We're still not sure if the new features are enough to entice one to upgrade, though, but we do assume that the more avid runners out there would prefer to have that GPS functionality.

So, what are the new features of the Apple Watch Series 2? Check the slideshow below to get the full scoop!

Watch series 2 all new features : GPS.....shortest article ever. Could have just put it in the headline and gone home early.

FF, you should be an editor. That will really double the revenue of what the entire PA staff brings in for the website...

Of course it would double the revenue. Articles of substance would actually bring in consistent and positively engaged readers.

They can't made up their own features and write it there though.

Well there are ways to pad it properly but I was just replying in general, not specifically to this one.

The Number 5,6 and 7 are not features, though.

Same hideous design, Pass! I would've liked a good looking one for my 6S plus but that design? Nope!
