The long-awaited smartwatch from Cupertino is finally official and will become available in more than 25 countries in about a week. Apple Watch 2 improves virtually every feature of its predecessor, offering a brighter display, a more powerful processor, GPS, water resistance, as well as multiple fitness and health tracking capabilities.

Since it can be used for swimming, the new Apple Watch also comes with two new workout options, dedicated for pool and open water activities. According to Apple, the new algorithms used by these options have been developed "after hundreds of hours of research." Apple Watch 2 uses a second generation S2 chip with a dual-core processor, a new GPU, a display with 1,000 nits, GPS and WiFi connectivity, all with watchOS 3 on top.

This smart wearable will be available in multiple editions, starting at $369 USD, but can go as high as $1,249 USD for the ceramic Watch Edition. The original Apple Watch will remain on the market as Apple Watch Series 1, now upgraded with a dual-core processor and starting at $269 USD. For more details, please check the press release below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
