Background and Identification ¶ 

Announced September 7th, 2016 the Apple Watch Series 2 is the successor to Apple's first foray into the realm of smartwatches. This watch offers technical upgrades such as built-in GPS, water resistance up to 50 meters, a faster S2 dual-core processor, and a screen with twice the brightness. With the tagline, "The ultimate device for a healthy life," this phone is made to appeal to runners, swimmers, hikers and meditators alike.

Aesthetically the watch is similar to its predecessor, featuring an identically-sized, square watch face, but it now offers four varieties: Apple Watch (aluminum or stainless steel case), Apple Watch Nike+ (aluminum case with Nike Sport Band), Apple Watch Hermès (stainless steel case with Hermès leather band), and Apple Watch Edition (ceramic case with sport band).
