Apple Watch Series 2 review: Getting it right the second time

 

There is a watch-shaped ring around my left wrist, a permanent tan-line.

The new Apple Watch is faster, has a far better OS, onboard GPS, a brighter display and is waterproof to 50 meters in salt or fresh water

Same battery life, mostly. GPS activity causes a big hit on battery life for running. Lacks always-on display. A tad thicker and heavier. Requires an iPhone to work

The Apple Watch returns in a made-for-sports upgrade that adds swim functions and GPS, but anyone who's not a runner or swimmer should consider the Apple Watch Series 1 instead.

Apple Watch Series 2: the verdict

 

The first Apple Watch had its flaws. The interface was complicated and apps were slow. Battery life was adequate but not outstanding. And it seemed like a solution in search of a problem: other than getting alerts on your wrist, what was the watch...

Apple's focus on fitness with Apple Watch Series 2 is entirely justified. The addition of GPS makes this a much better watch for anyone doing outdoor fitness, and the water resistance and swimming features mean it's now much more versatile.

good product

 

I bought a white one and I love its appearance, very lovely. It's also paired with iphone easily. I won't miss a message or call. But a downside is it has to be charged very frequently, and if your phone is dead, I don't think apple watch can help much.

Deaf person's dream!

 

Can't live without my watch. Pairing is super easy with iPhone5. As I am deaf the vibrating and display of messages is invaluable. No excuse for missing texts anymore, but can turn off with a swipe as well. Find my phone function is super useful. Love...

Consumer review by: Felipe V. (productreview.com.au)

it's great but the battery doens't last a day

 

This is great because you don't need as much of the phone anymore, it gives you all the notifications, calls and messages, you can even reply to them, it looks a bit weird but at the end of the day, that's what you paid for, the battery drains very...

I am in love

 

I actually won mine from work and wasn't sure if it was something I would use. How wrong I was! I have the NIKE version and have used it every day. It makes me feel safe when I am riding my horse alone, it lets me know when I need to move, it tells me...
