Apple announces new Apple Watch series 2

    Apple Watch 2

  • First Apple Watch was “splash” proof. This is “swim” proof.
    Water resistant for 50 meters, withstanding the water pressure equivalent of 50m.
  • In order to waterproof it, Apple says it has redesigned the speaker on the new Watch so that the speaker actually has a mechanism that pushes out water. New seals and adhesives all over the watch, and a redesigned speaker that actually expels the water when you’re done. The Watch learns about your swimming over time, and adjusts to you.
