Up close with the new Apple Watch Series 2: waterproof, built-in GPS, and a Nike-themed watch
Apple today showed off the next generation of Apple Watch, the smartwatch that it first brought to market back in March of 2015. At first glance it looks almost exactly like the original Apple Watch, but it has some new sport-focused features both under the hood and within its software.Most notably, the new Apple Watch has built-in GPS. It's also "swimproof", or water-resistant up to 50 meters, which means it will track swim activity. And Apple has rolled out a new Nike-themed watch, aimed at runners.The new Sport watch starts at $369, and will ship next week. The original Apple Watch is getting both an update and a price cut: it will sell for $269, but includes a faster processor.You can see here from the photos below that there are some physical differences, though you really have to look closely. The new Apple Watch Series 2 is about a millimeter thicker than last year's model. Also, it has two speaker ports, which is all part of a mechanism that expels water from the Watch. And the optical heart rate sensors have a white ring around them that wasn't there on last year's model. (For comparison's sake: last year's Watch is the one with the yellow band in the pics below; all other Watches are new ones.)We'll have more impressions shortly, but for now, check out the pics below.
