Apple Watch Series 2


Apple Watch Series 2 is a smartwatch that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2016 to 2017 as a part of the Apple Watch series. This Watch has been introduced on September 7, 2016, and released a week later on September 16, 2016. The price of the new Watch started at $369.

Apple Watch Series 2 comes in three versions: Apple Watch Sport, which was made of Silver, Space Gray, Gold or Rose Gold Aluminum, and Ion-X glass. The second version called Apple Watch is made of Silver or Black Stainless Steel and Sapphire crystal glass. The third version called Apple Watch Edition is made of White Ceramic and Sapphire crystal glass.

In Addition, Apple in collaboration with Nike introduces for the first time Apple Watch Nike+ edition. Apple Watch Nike+ is exactly the same as the Apple Watch Sport version but is bundled with a special color matching perforated band. Each of these versions has been prepared in two sizes, a smaller 38 mm case and a bigger 42 mm case, and paired with one of the 6 straps options.

When it comes to specifications, Apple Watch Series 2 has been equipped with a gorgeous OLED Retina display with Force Touch technology. The 38 mm version features a 1.5-inch display, and the 42 mm version features a 1.65-inch display in diagonal. This Watch is powered by an Apple original system-on-chip Apple S2 to provide the best performance.

The device features as well a 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a Taptic Engine to provide natural feedback, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, NFC technology for Apple Pay, heart rate sensor, a gyroscope, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, wireless charging system, water-resistance up to 50 meters, and more. The battery in the Apple Watch lasts for up to 18 hours of use. 

Apple Watch Series 2 introduces water resistance at a rating of 50 meters. It can keep track of the number of laps and distance during Swimming workouts. During swimming, the touch function can be manually disabled with ‘Underwater mode‘. Once this is turned off, by rotating the Digital Crown continuously, it uses the speaker to expel residual water through a series of 10 vibrations. The Apple Watch Series 2 has a built-in GPS system.

After a year since its release, Apple has released a new generation of Apple Watch. On September 12, 2017, this model has been discontinued and has been made unavailable to order in Apple Store anymore. Of course, you can still buy Apple Watch Series 2 from other sellers. This Apple Watch has been replaced by Apple Watch Series 3. Software support for this Apple Watch ended with watchOS 6.2.8.

Today Apple Watch Series 2 is 5 years old!
