Introducing Series 2.
Built-in GPS. Water resistance to 50 metres. A new lightning-fast dual-core processor. And a display that’s two times brighter than before. Full of features that help you stay active, motivated and connected, Apple Watch Series 2 is designed for all the ways you move.
Superior Sports Watch
For all the ways you work out.
Apple Watch Series 2 with built-in GPS lets you leave your iPhone at home when you go for a run or ride — and still measure your workout accurately. You can also do swimming workouts in open water, track lengths at the pool, or splash with your kids. And with the brightest display Apple has ever made, you’ll see your metrics clearly, no matter how much the sun glares.
Go. Even without your iPhone.
With built-in GPS, Apple Watch Series 2 can record precise distance, speed and pace while you’re walking, running or cycling outdoors. It picks up a signal straightaway, so you don’t have to wait to get moving. And when you’re done, you can check your iPhone to see a map of your route and where you ran your fastest.
Heart Rate Sensor
Keep an eye on your target.
A custom sensor continuously measures your heart rate while you use the Workout app. See it together with all your other important metrics — and even highlight it so you can check it at a glance.
Splash. Surf. Swim.
Apple Watch Series 2 is rated water resistant 50 metres, so you can leave it on when you’re in the pool or ocean. Since a speaker can’t be sealed because it needs air to produce sound, we reinvented ours — it lets water in, then uses sound vibrations to force it back out.
Sweat the details.
Choose from 12 indoor and outdoor workouts — including swimming, biking, running and elliptical — then set your goals and get moving. However you work out, Apple Watch Series 2 accurately measures your movement. Select up to five metrics to view at once, automatically pause a run, and even mark segments.
Get credit for every workout.
Like all your daily activities, your workouts count towards closing your Stand, Move and Exercise rings. View a history of your rings on your iPhone to see your performance over time, and be inspired to pursue new goals.
Third-Party Workout Apps
Stick with what works.
Whether you’re into cycling, hiking or yoga, you can continue using the workout apps you already know and love, and still get credit towards completing your Activity rings.
Advanced Activity Tracker
Every move counts. So count every move.
Apple Watch Series 2 tracks all the ways you move throughout the day. So whether you’re walking between meetings, doing cartwheels with your kids or hitting the gym, it all adds up.
Sit less. Move more. Get some exercise.
Your Stand, Move and Exercise rings show you how active you are every day and inspire you to move a little more. See if you’ve been sitting too much. Track how many steps you’ve taken and how many calories you’ve burned. And aim for 30 minutes of exercise, even if it’s not all at once.
A nudge when you need it.
Smart notifications help you close your Stand, Move and Exercise rings every day. Apple Watch Series 2 gives you regular progress updates and uses your success to motivate you to pursue new goals.
Healthy loves company.
Share and compare your Activity rings with friends and family to stay motivated. Or compete to see who can hit their goals first. Receive notifications on your friends’ progress and easily respond direct from the notification — whether it’s to send encouragement or a little trash talk.
A tap on the wrist. A pat on the back.
When you hit milestones or reach your personal best, Apple Watch Series 2 is there to help you celebrate. For each achievement you’ll receive a distinctive badge you can share with friends.
Fitness for all.
Apple Watch Series 2 takes into account different pushing techniques and terrains to accurately record Activity metrics for wheelchair users. And there are two wheelchair-specific workouts to choose from.
Powerful Health Tool
There’s more to health than fitness.
Since Apple Watch Series 2 is always with you, it can help you be more aware of your overall health. It lets you easily monitor your heart rate, better manage everyday stress and add apps relevant to your specific routines. So you get a more complete picture of you.
Heart Rate Sensor
Check in anytime.
The custom sensor on the back of Apple Watch Series 2 measures your heart rate throughout the day. And the data is sent to your iPhone, where you can track your heart rate patterns over time in the Health app.
Quiet your mind. Relax your body.
Stay centred as a beautiful animation and gentle taps guide you through a series of deep breaths. Time to Breathe reminders help you practise mindfulness every day.
Third-Party Health Apps
What’s good for you?
The right apps can play an active, immediate role in reminding you to keep up with your regimens and routines. Apple Watch Series 2 lets you add the ones that fit best in your life.
Health App on iPhone
All your data in one place.
In addition to your heart rate, the Health app stores information collected by all your health and fitness apps, so you can see the data in one clear snapshot. You can customise the dashboard overview or take a closer look at individual metrics to see your trends over time.
Just what you need. Just when you need it.
Get a gentle tap when a message or call comes in. Access and launch your favourite apps in an instant. Use Siri to get things done with just your voice. With Apple Watch Series 2, you can get important information and do things quickly and conveniently right from your wrist — so you never have to put your day on pause.
Apps and Notifications
Never miss what matters.
Apple Watch Series 2 helps keep you informed, organised and connected throughout your day. A new, dual-core processor and more powerful GPU enable faster app performance and smoother animations. With watchOS 3 your favourite apps launch instantly with up-to-date information. And a 2x brighter display gives you increased visibility — even in direct sunlight.
Put information from your favourite apps on your watch face, so you can see what you need at a glance. Tap to instantly launch an app. And easily move between faces by swiping from edge to edge, so you always have the one that’s right for the moment.
Your favourite apps. Ready when you are.

All you have to do is ask.
Check for new messages or email. Request the song stuck in your head. Find out if you’ve closed your Move ring. Siri can help you do lots of things quickly and easily — just raise your wrist, say “Hey Siri”, and start talking.
