Apple announced watchOS 2, see all the upcoming new features for the Apple Watch here

Apple Watch is still a relatively new gadget, but the watchOS has been in the making for quite a while. Even though the Apple wearable is quite impressive when compared to the competition, it's still a first-gen product, not to mention smartwatches are still a relatively new category of tech, so it didn't hit all the marks and there is room for improvement. So, naturally, after Apple talked about iOS 9 at the WWDC, it also announced that a new watchOS 2 is on the way.

The update should bring smoother performance, some more nifty user-oriented features, and more useful apps, as it will give developers more access to the wearable's hardware. watchOS 2 developer edition will be available today, while the consumer version will hit all Apple Watches this Fall. If you are interested in how the Apple timepiece is about to improve this year, whether because you own one, or out of general interest, check the slideshow below for a full set of the upcoming features.
