Apple Launches it’s ‘Watch Series 2’ With a GPS and Water Resistance

On Wednesday as Cupertino, California-based tech firm, Apple Corp. was launching their most anticipated flagship, the ‘iPhone 7‘, Apple’s Chief Operating Office Jeff Williams showed off a new version of the Apple Watch, ‘Apple Watch Series 2‘, featuring a fast dual-core processor, a brighter screen, heart rate sensor, water resistant and a built-in GPS.

According to Apple, the watch is designed with a GPS chip that allows for running and walking to be more accurately tracked during fitness sessions. The company adds that the watch is water resistant to a depth of 50 meters.

Apple also showed off a number of new apps that come with the device, including Niantic’s popular location-based augmented reality game, Pokemon Go. The Apple Watch Series 2 is priced at $369 (roughly 1.3 million UGX), and will be available on September 16 as pre-orders are on September 9.[related-posts]

Apple’s first watch was shipped last year in April hoping for a new blockbuster product amid slowing iPhone sales, which contribute more than 60% of the companies annual revenue.

While the company shipped 1.6 million devices from April to June, the product’s growth fell more than 56% from the same period in 2015, according to research analyst IDC.
