Apple Watch Series 2

 

Apple Watch 2 review: Apple's second attempt at a wearable fixes many of the problems of the original, making it a great smartwatch and fitness tracker.

Bright, beautiful screen ; Great fitness tracking ; GPS makes it more versatile ; Solid battery life ; Snappy performance

Expensive ; Looks the same as previous version

The Apple Watch 2 might not look any different, but the refinements that Apple has made are all spot on. If you want a smartwatch that doubles as a solid fitness tracker then this is a fantastic option.

Apple Watch Series 2 review

 

Jack of all trades, master of most

Still the best smartwatch around... ; ... and now one of the sportiest ; Beautifully made and very customisable with straps and faces ; Longer-lasting battery

Many rivals sport/smart watches still last longer ; Overkill if all you're after is wristy notifications

They may look minor, but Apple’s tweaks make the Watch a watershed wearable

Apple Watch Series 2 review: Fitness first

 

As the Apple Watch continues to polarise opinion, Apple has released a new version of the smartwatch which hopes to address many of the concerns of the first outing. It's called the Apple Watch Series 2. Apple's shift from pure fashion accessory with...

Now 50m water resistant, built-in GPS, better battery, unlock your Mac is fun, two-button workout pause option, WatchOS 3 makes for a better overall experience

No always-on display option, no 'Cinema Mode' can be annoying, some won't like square design

Apple's shift from pure fashion accessory with some smarts to a device that supports a range of different sports and activities in the Apple Watch Series 2 is a welcome advance.

Apple Watch 2 review

 

Fitness takes over the Apple Watch (now with Nike+ review too)

Water-resistant ; GPS onboard ; Two day battery life

Expensive ; Lack of useful apps ; Fitness could be more comprehensive

The Apple Watch 2 is an improvement on the original Watch in a number of ways, and all of them useful. The extended battery life, the GPS abilities and the water-resistance now make this a compelling smartwatch, though the follow up Series 3 is the...

Apple Watch Series 2 review: Apple's wearable gets cheaper

 

A great update of the best smartwatch around: the Apple Watch is an exception fitness device

Water- and swim-proof ; Built-in GPS ; Brighter, more readable screen outdoors

The price is high ; Still no sleep tracking

The fact remains, though: the Apple Watch in either of its guises is the best smartwatch on the market, and the Series 2 can now claim to be among the best fitness trackers too.

Apple Watch 3 vs Apple Watch 2

 

Should you buy a Series 3 Apple Watch or get the Series 2? We explain their differences.

Apple has made the Series 3 cheaper than the Series 2 yet packed in more storage and a faster processor. It will cost you more if you want built-in 4G, but that could be the killer feature if you've longed to use your Watch without having to carry your...

Massive improvement ; WatchOS 3 ; GPS ; Water resistant ; Variety

The Apple Watch 2 is undoubtedly one of the very best wearables that we’ve rocked on our wrists. With a massive selection of design combinations, essential features like built-in GPS and waterproofing, plus a refined OS and plenty of app support,...

Apple Watch review: Wait for Apple Watch 2

 

Apple's smartwatch, called the Apple Watch rather than the expected iWatch, is available to buy now. Here, we bring you an Apple Watch review based on out experience with the hot new device so far.

We can't help but think that Apple has tried to do too much with this first generation Apple Watch. There are so many ways of interacting with it and so many different features and elements to get used to that the learning curve is surprisingly steep....
