Apple Watch Series 2 38mm Ceramic Edition Sport Band

5.0
Verdict: Apple's focus on fitness with Apple Watch Series 2 is entirely justified. The addition of GPS makes this a much better watch for anyone doing outdoor fitness, and the water resistance and swimming features mean it's now much more versatile. The fitness angle also makes it a much easier sell.

The Apple Watch Series 2 Review: Building Towards Maturity

No reviews
Verdict: In many industries, but especially in technology, there's a common wisdom about waiting for the second or third iteration of a product before purchasing it. This is based on the idea that the first version of a product will often be the most flawed or compromised - a product still trying to find its...

Apple Watch Series 2 and Nike+ Edition: Sport & Fitness In-Depth Review

No reviews
Verdict: There's no doubt that for a large portion of the population, the Apple Watch Series 2 upgrades (specifically the inclusion of GPS) will hit the spot. The watch feels slightly faster, and core functionality is just as clean as it's ever been on the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 2 38mm Ceramic Edition Sport Band

No reviews
Verdict: The Apple Watch Series 2 has a few new tricks up its sleeve, but will you want to wear it on yours? While its processor, display and interactivity make it impressively capable, the new Apple Watch remains a sleek gizmo without a killer app.

Review: Apple Watch Series 2 is a great improvement, but watchOS 3 steals the show

4.0
Verdict: Equipped with a noticeably faster dual-core S2 processor, its own standalone GPS radio, and now with a waterproof design, the Apple Watch Series 2 is a worthwhile and fantastic upgrade from the first-generation model. It's also a great jumping on point for new buyers.

Apple Watch Series 2 review: work it out

3.8
Verdict: The Apple Watch Series 2 is exactly that. It's what Apple had resisted calling its wearable for the past year and a half, even declining to categorize it as such when citing industry rankings, opting for the "smartwatch" category instead. It is, definitely, still a smartwatch.
Pros: Built-in GPS, Water resistant up to 50m, Faster performance, Bigger battery
Cons: Limited to iPhone users, Display not visible in direct sunlight, Still has some software glitches

Apple Watch Series 2 38mm Ceramic Edition Sport Band

4.0
Verdict: 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.
Pros: 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 with the same bands as the first-gen watch
Cons: 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 same features for $100 less

Apple Watch Series 2

4.0
Verdict: If you're not at all interested in fitness tracking, Apple Watch Series 2 is likely about as appealing as the first-gen Watch was when it was first released. That being said, if you are a runner or swimmer this may be the push you need to get an Apple Watch.
Pros: Series 2's fitness tracking abilities give the Watch a more focused path. The awaited built-in GPS is accurate and adds another dimension to the smartwatch. Swimproof water-resistance will be welcomed by all, but swimmers will also appreciate the detailed swim tracking.
Cons: Though the Watch's appeal has broadened, it's still relatively narrow with no true "wow" feature. No notable gains in battery life or charging ability. watchOS 3 and an upgraded processor offer a great benefit to first-gen Apple Watch users as well, at a lower price.

Apple Watch Series 2 Review: Better in (Almost) Every Way

4.0
Verdict: Ironically, Apple has made the Apple Watch more appealing to more shoppers by narrowing its focus. From the GPS and water resistance to the new Activity watch face and activity sharing options, the $369 Series 2 is an excellent fitness tracker watch that happens to have lots of other talents.
Pros: Built-in GPS is huge for runners, Faster performance, Brighter display is good in sunlight, Longer battery life, Waterproof design is good for swimming
Cons: Not enough workout data on watch, Where's the watch-face store, Lacks LTE support

Apple Watch Series 2

4.0
Verdict: The Apple Watch Series 2 (starting at $369) is the closest we've come to a genuine smartwatch / fitness tracker hybrid yet.

Apple Watch 2 review: does the wearable still live up to the hype two months later?

4.0
Verdict: The Series 2 is simply what the Series 1 should have been. It has been improved in nearly every way and is finally an all-in-one legitimate fitness tracker with the addition of GPS and water resistance (it should be noted, though, that the new Apple Watch cannot measure elevation, so climbers...

Verdict: The original Apple Watch wasn't amazing, but it did what it set out to do. You could answer phone calls on your watch, see notifications from your phone, and even track your heart rate. And with the most recent software upgrade, the watch has speed and interface improvements that refine it further.
Pros: WatchOS 3 is amazing
Cons: Doesn't feel worth an upgrade over the Series 1

Apple Watch Series 2: Australian Review

No QVC Apple Watch Bundles
