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

 

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 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. Apple's shift from pure fashion accessory with...

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 2

 

Apple Watch 2 review: A major upgrade – the Apple Watch 2 is now properly water-resistant, speedy and great for fitness freaks. A deserved winner of TrustedReviews' Wearable of the Year 2016 award.

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.

Apple Watch Series 2 review: Apple's winning wearable

 

A great update of the best smartwatch around: the Apple Watch is an exception fitness device

Water- and swim-proof ; Built-in GPS ; Brighter, more readable screen outdoors

The price is high ; Still no sleep tracking

The fact remains, though: the Apple Watch in either of its guises is the best smartwatch on the market, and the Series 2 can now claim to be among the best fitness trackers too.

The Apple Watch Series 2 Review: Building Towards Maturity

 

Back in the first half of 2015 Apple released the first version of the Apple Watch . The Apple Watch was a long-rumored product, often referred to as the iWatch before its release. At the time, it represented the best attempt that I had seen to provide...

Last, but not least, are the Apple Watch's health and fitness tracking abilities. When the Apple Watch first launched I thought I would just turn these off and forget about them, but my own poor health choices have led to me relying on them to keep...
