Two years after Apple announced their first ever wearable, the Cupertino company has officially announced the second-generation device today. The new model, dubbed the Apple Watch Series Two, is an iterative device much like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, with new internals and a slightly tweaked design.
The biggest change now is full water resistance – the new Apple Watch is now rated to go as deep as 50 meters, and can now track swimming stats. The second change is a built-in GPS module – you no longer have to take your phone with you during a workout if you want to find out exactly where you went during your last run.
The insides of the phone has been throughly re-worked by Apple. There’s now a dual-core processor inside the watch to keep things running quickly. The processor is fast enough to keep the display running at 60 frames per second, and the display has the brightest display that they’ve ever released, able to deliver 1000 nits of brightness – more than enough to defeat bright sunlight.
The Apple Watch Series Two is dropping in the US on September 16, with prices starting at $369 (Php 17.2K).
