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

Apple has upgraded the 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 - but it doesn't quite do enough to make you need such a watch in your...

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.

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 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 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....

Apple Watch 2 review | Apple Watch Series 2 review: Virtually perfect

 

Our Apple Watch 2 review evaluates the Apple Watch Series 2's build quality, new features, speed, battery life, tech specs and value for money. The Apple Watch Series 2 is noticeably faster than the original Apple Watch and water-resistant to 50m, and...

Fast performance ; Attractive design ; GPS ; Water resistance ; 2-day battery life ; Brighter screen

High price tag ; Not compatible with Android smartphones

The new Apple Watch Series 2 takes the main complaints about the attractive but flawed original Apple Watch - slow operation, lack of GPS, limited water resistance, short battery life - and solves or at least improves them systematically.
