Water resistant for 50 meters
The Apple Watch Series 2 is “swim” proof. It is water resistant for 50 meters. You would enjoy swimming without being worried about your wearable device.
The speaker on the new Watch has been redesigned to push out water.
Moreover, the Watch now learns about your swimming over time and adjusts accordingly.
The S2 has come with a new chip. The Dual-core processor makes the smartwatch up to 50 percent faster. Better still, it provides twice the graphics performance.
2x Brighter Display
The latest Apple Watch has 2x brighter display. It is claimed to be the brightest display Apple has ever shipped at 1000 nits. Hence, it will be a bit easier to use your Watch in direct sunlight.
The S2 has built-in GPS which can connect to the satellites quickly. The GPS enables the smart to perform mapping even without the connected iPhone. Developers can use the GPS.
Apple was reported to include cellular connectivity but didn’t do so due to the already strained battery.
