Apple Watch Series 2 announced with swimproof shell and GPS for $369
Apple unveiled its second generation smartwatch today at its annual mobile hardware event, and it is unsurprisingly called the Apple Watch Series 2. The device is very similar to its predecessor: it's got a square, customizable watchface mostly for telling the time and displaying notifications; a single-day battery life; and a funky watch dial Apple calls the digital crown for scrolling and zooming. The biggest changes, however, are a new water-resistant shell, which makes the watch swimproof up to 50 meters, and the addition of a GPS chip.
The built-in GPS allows the device to perform mapping on its own, no phone required. According to reports last month, Apple decided not to include cellular connectivity, likely out of concern for the device's already strained battery. So while the new Apple Watch can tell you where to go when you're out for a run, it cannot receive app notifications, make calls, or send texts.
