Apple Watch Series 2 price and release date

The Apple Watch Series 2 is an incremental upgrade that adds meaningful innovation to the smartwatch series: it is great for swimmers with its completely swim-proof construction, and it's great for runners with its Nike collaboration, but it's also about much powerful performance with a dual-core processor and much faster GPU.

The big question that's looming over this new Apple Watch Series 2, however, is how much will it cost?

Good news is that Apple is not planning some huge increases in pricing: the Apple Watch series price will start from $370, while at the same time an upgraded Apple Watch series 1 (the original watch with series 2's new and faster processor) will still be sold for a reduced price of $270.

The Apple Watch Series 2 release date is set for Friday, September 16th, but you will be able to pre-order yours (both S2 and S1) in just two days, on September 9th.

lol, I share the same opinion, though the fact that you can swim with the thing is pretty awesome. I don't think that I would though, despite their claims, I would just be too scared to.

Don't confuse my sarcasm as disagreement - I just don't understand why him and others have to be so derogatory about all Apple products. Mr. Electufyer, you and many others actually have reasonable input even if negative. Just hate the derogatory sentiments - its getting annoying - especially when you expect it, anyway - it's old.

Still no round display? Any idea when apple might consider putting out a watch that looks good and worthy enough to show off in public???

I agree actually - I knew Apple wasn't going to make a drastic design change - to keep older models value up (research how that works). I was planning to get second generation of it - but disappointed that it's not round. Thinking of a Samsung smartwatch (gear s2, I think). Depending how well it will work with iOS devices. We'll see... $370 is not that much money.

I was thinking of getting a Samsung also, but I'm gonna try holding off until next year to see what comes out (hopefully the batteries are better by then).

I think I've seen way too many images of the Mickey Mouse watch face on apple's watch to take it seriously. Whenever I see that I think child/teenager and anything but luxurious lol.
