Josh Ginter is a great writer, and I always enjoy reading his thoughts on Apple’s mobile devices (see here, here, and here). Today he shared some first impressions of the Apple Watch Series 2, so of course I rushed to check them out. I agree with him on almost every point.
If you didn’t buy an Apple Watch before because you heard the Apple Watch was slow, then I think this is a very good place to jump in on the platform. Combined with watchOS 3, the new CPU inside this watch makes this a wearable that I don’t think most people would even consider calling “slow” anymore. However, if it wasn’t the slowness, but the core functionality of the Apple Watch that kept you from buying the old model, this isn’t going to change your mind.
Apple has finally shipped watchOS 3, the third major version of their still extremely young wearable platform. watchOS shipped in April 2015, with watchOS 2 coming just a few months later in September. As I have made very clear with this site, I have owned an Apple Watch since launch day last April and have worn mine literally every day since then. I have a profound love for my Apple Watch, and can’t see going back to a world without it.
People always make predictions for what they think will be coming at these Apple events, and they rarely go back and give grades on how they did. I made some predictions last week, and I took a look at the results form yesterday’s announcements.
We are exactly 1 week away from Apple’s next big event, and all we know for sure is that they will be unveiling the new iPhone. What we don’t know is what else will be shown off at the event. iPads? Macs? Maybe, but what I’m most interested in is a new Apple Watch.
