What’s The Difference Between Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple Watch Series 2?


Unless you have been under a rock for the pass 24 hours you will be well aware that the Apple Watch 2 will be available for pre-order on 9th September 2016 12:01am for USA and 08:01am for UK. Apple decided to create two versions, Series 1 and Series 2 of the Apple Watch. I’m a big Apple fan so I am no doubt going to order mine. But what if you have an original Apple Watch already and deciding wether or not you shop upgrade to Apple Watch 2. Or perhaps you cannot decide between the Series 1 and the Series 2. Here is a little snippet from Apple website that might help you decide.

Apple Watch Series 1 has all the features of the original Apple Watch, as well as a new dual-core processor for faster performance. It is splash resistant, meaning you can wear and use it during exercise, in the rain and while washing your hands, but submerging it is not recommended. Apple Watch Series 1 comes with aluminium cases, and runs the latest version of watchOS.

Apple Watch Series 2 has all the features of Apple Watch Series 1, as well as some additional ones: it is rated Water Resistant 50 Metres, so you can safely swim with it. However, Apple Watch Series 2 should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth. Built-in GPS provides accurate speed, pace, distance and location information, even if you don’t have your iPhone with you. And the second-generation display is more than twice as bright as before, making it the brightest Apple has ever made. Apple Watch Series 2 is available in aluminium, stainless steel or ceramic cases, and runs the latest version of watchOS.
