Apple Watch Series 2
For tech-lovers, an Apple watch Series 2 is a must-have piece of kit that seamlessly combines impressive functionality, stylish aesthetics and effortless wearability. The Series 2 is the second iteration of Apple's wildly successful range of smartwatches and boasts an even more intuitive design than the original model. Shop for your Apple Watch Series 2 on eBay or browse the many Apple watch straps available to add a few new colours and designs to your collection.
A new operating system released by Apple alongside the Watch Series 2 has enabled improvements and refinements. Included is a new Siri watch face that brings all the benefits of voice-activated control to your wrist, while AI functionality alerts you to useful information.
One of the key components of the Apple watch Series 1 was its activity app, and this also receives a vital upgrade in the Series 2 model. You can now set monthly goals, essential for incentivising you to get active. There are also completely new sports and activities on offer, plus new features to support High-Intensity Interval Training.
The optical heart rate monitor has also been further developed. The app now allows you to measure your recovery and resting heart rates as well as your general heart rhythm, cleverly alerting you to anomalous escalations which could be the early indication of heart conditions.
The real headline of the Series 2 however, is its water resistance. Wear it in the shower, the pool, or even dive into the sea with it on, perfect for tracking your open water swims. Apple promise that it can withstand depths of up to 50 metres.
Design-wise it's still one of the sleekest models around, with little modification from Series 1. Its stainless-steel or aluminium chassis comes in a range of stylish colours: gold, rose gold, space grey or silver. However, if you're after the ultimate fusion of practicality and style look out for the white ceramic model.
Polished to a super-smooth finish, it's four times tougher than the metal versions. Plus, with a variety of different straps available, including sports and luxury fashion brands, there's something for everyone.
