As announced together with the iPhone 7, the Series 2 is the most complete Apple Watch yet. It finally gets waterproofing up to 50 metres and there’s also built-in GPS for better standalone tracking. Readability outdoors is improved with a brighter OLED display which boasts a brightness of 1,000 nits. For better performance, the Series 2 is now powered by a newer S2 dual-core processor.

To make the Apple Watch accessible to all, they have retained the original Apple Watch but it gets updated with a S1P dual-core processor (without GPS). Dubbed as the Series 1, it retains the same specs as the original version which also means it is only splash-resistant and it lacks built-in GPS.

For the new Series 2, they no longer carry the premium gold plated variants for the Apple Watch Edition. Instead, they have introduced a new ceramic white version which claims to be more durable and scratch resistant.
