Apple announced earlier today a major software update for its Apple Watch family of smartwatches, but also a few new cases and bands for these wearables. According to the official press release, watchOS 2 is a free software update that will launch next Wednesday and "makes apps faster and more fluid by running natively on Apple Watch," but also brings other highlights.

This major software update for the Apple smartwatch comes with new watch faces, as well as communication features and Digital Touch with multiple sketch colors. On the other hand, the exterior of these smart wearables also gets updated:

  • Apple Watch Sport anodized aluminum case now has gold aluminum and rose gold aluminum options, paired with fluoroelastomer Sport Bands
  • Apple Watch Sport silver aluminum gets orange and blue Sport Bands
  • Stainless steel Apple Watch collection now has "a variety of new bands including a two-toned Classic Buckle in black or saddle brown" ready to go
  • Apple Watch Edition includes an 18-karat rose gold case

Next to the above, Apple also introduces a stainless steel case and a PRODUCT(RED) Sport Band that will help the global fight against AIDS. iOS 9 will have to be installed on the iPhone devices that connect to the smartwatch to take full advantage of the new features. For prices and additional details, please check the press release.

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.
