After a wait of two years Apple has finally released an upgrade for its Apple Watch, called the Apple Watch Series Two. In terms of physical appearance it looks pretty much the same as the older Apple wearable but packs in additional features which sets it apart from its predecessor.

Water Resistant And GPS
Firstly the watch is water resistant in water up to 50 meters and is capable of tracking all under water activity undertaken by the wearer and secondly the watch has built in GPS. Apple has guaranteed that the Apple Watch series Two is unlike any other smartwatch which has built in GPS and will reduce your waiting time to zero unlike other watches offering the same feature in the market.
The new watch has gotten a complete hardware redesign which included the inclusion of a dual processor as well as superior graphics which offer double the speed that the original had. The device is capable of projecting visuals at 60 frames per second and according to Jeff Williams it has the brightest display that Apple has sold. Because of the fact that it has over 1000 nits it shouldn’t face the hurdles that are accompanied by the use of LCD based devices in sunlight.
Apple has also added an additional case material for the Apple Watch Series Two and ceramic housing which is now available.
Nike and Hermes
Other than this Apple has also established a partnership with Nike and Hermes so that brand specific editions of the watch can be made. The Apple Watch Series Two Nike+ Edition comes with a customized band that resembles Nikes old Nike+ SportsWatch GPS running devices.
We have pretty much gotten everything that reports claimed the new Apple watch would have starting from the first report we received back in August from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who said that the new Appel wearable will have faster internals, GPS, barometer, better waterproofing and a bigger battery. The Apple watch has been under a lot of scrutiny since its release probably because of the fact that it comes from one of the biggest tech giants out there.
In contrast to what has been written about the watch it has done exceptionally well over the years and is now up to par with Fitbit which has a bigger markets share in this industry. And Apple revealed today that it is the second most recognized and acclaimed watch brand globally and holds the number one position in the smartwatch market.
