One of the key features of Apple Keynote event was Apple Watch Series 2 other than the Star featured iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus.




The successor to original Apple Watch which launched in April last year, Apple Watch Series 2 not just brings new hardware and software features, but also comes with new straps.

The watch comes in three major variants (based on material used in construction of the case) - Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Ceramic White. There are also new straps created in collaboration with Hermes, a popular fashion brand.

And that's not it. Nike too has worked with Apple to bring the Apple Watch Nike+ Edition. Made specifically for runners, the watch comes with an 'Advanced' mode. Having perforated straps, the Nike+ edition Apple Watch Series 2 will be available in four colors.

With built-in GPS, Apple Watch Series 2 records precise distance, pace and speed for outdoor workouts such as walking, running or cycling, without needing to take an iPhone.

On completion of an outdoor workout, view a route map that shows variations in speed in the Activity app on iPhone. Whether running, going for a swim or walking between meetings, the Activity app on Apple Watch Series 2 counts all daily activity towards the Stand, Move and Exercise rings.
