Early Apple Watch Series 2 reviews praise the GPS and brighter screen

 

The earliest reviews of the Apple Watch Series 2 went live on Wednesday. Series 2 is currently in the preorder phase, and launches in the first round of countries on Friday, September 16. Every reviewer agrees the Apple Watch experience has improved,...

Apple Watch Series 2 hands-on: Ceramic is stunning, but Hermès overpriced

 

It's really hard to tell the difference between the new Apple Watch Series 2 models and the originals—the aluminum and steel versions anyway—until you place them side by side. Turns out, the Series 2 models are ever so slightly thicker than their...

Apple Watch Series 2 review: This is a lifestyle choice

 

Apple Watch 2 is now the best smartwatch out there, buy this if you want to make a style statement

Apple Watch Series 2 review

 

After much delay, Apple launched the Watch last year and the updates haven't stopped since!

Beautifully built with lots of customisation ; Screen is super bright and crisp ; Fast performance, battery life

Expensive even in the cheapest form ; Nothing else!

Although it looks the same, this is a huge upgrade that makes the difference between wanting to own it or gift it.

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.

The bottom line: Our quick verdict on the Apple Watch Series 2

 

The Series 2 is the best smartwatch you can buy, but it's not the best sports watch. Even with the waterproofing and built-in GPS, it's best if you think of this as a fitness tracker -- albeit, a very stylish, feature-rich fitness tracker. The pace...

Faster performance and longer battery life than before ; watchOS 3 feels much more intuitive ; Waterproof design means you can take it swimming ; Built-in GPS is good for walkers, hikers and casual joggers ; Screen is more than twice as bright ; Works...

Average pace calculations in workouts are often off the mark ; Distance tracking in running falters if you stop to walk ; Activity app is missing features you'll find in other fitness apps ; More watch faces, please ; The Series 1 watch offers many of...

The Apple Watch Series 2 bundles brains, beauty, and brawn into the best smartwatch yet.

Apple Watch Nike+ review: a new and effective take on running watches

 

World’s two most recognisable brands combine for a triumph of branding… and a very decent, social-driven running watch

Exceptional strap design ; Fast GPS pick-up ; Nike + app and watch faces ; Excellent social elements

Slow to sync to iPhone ; Heart rate data not fully integrated ; Lacks the in-depth analysis of dedicated watches

Apple Watch Series 2

 

The Apple Watch Series 2 brings advanced fitness-tracking features that make it more useful than many of the other smartwatches we've reviewed. But it's still a considerable investment for a device you don't really need.

Built-in GPS. Waterproof to 164 feet. Brighter screen and faster performance than original Apple Watch. Accurate fitness tracking. Plenty of third-party apps.

Expensive. Battery life has not improved from predecessor. Lacks integrated sleep tracking and continuous heart rate monitoring when not working out.

The Apple Watch Series 2 is the best smartwatch-fitness tracker hybrid we've seen, and better than the original watch thanks to a brighter screen, faster performance, and a waterproof design.

Apple Watch Nike+

 

The Apple Watch Nike+ boasts sporty styling and some exclusive features that make it a solid alternative to Apple's Series 2 smartwatch, especially for runners.

Ventilated watchband. Exclusive Nike watch faces and features. Lots of third-party apps.

Expensive. Inaccurate pace measurements in testing. No heart rate zones. Lacks continuous heart rate monitoring when not working out.

The Apple Watch Nike+ isn't all that different from the Apple Watch Series 2. And that's not a bad thing. Both watches offer fast performance, sharp displays, and a fantastic selection of third-party apps. The Nike+ just offers some exclusive Nike...
