As expected, Apple launched a new version of the Apple Watch last week. While many rumors pointed to an Apple Watch 2, Apple made incremental improvements and dubbed the latest product Apple Watch Series 2. The company also surprised many fans by upgrading the processor in the original Apple Watch and continuing to sell this model at a $100 discount. While the two models are ever so slightly different on the outside, when it comes to size and weight they are virtually the same. So what are the key differences between the Apple Watch Series 1 and the Apple Watch Series 2?

Confirmation of what will surely be a big selling point of the next generation Apple Watch has arrived. Leaked parts have been measured by byte.co.uk and show the device will ship with a larger battery. While the exterior case size is not expected to change, the reorganization of internal components has provided space for a 1.15 mm thicker battery.
The wait is almost over. Apple has made September 7th official with an email invitation to the media. On this particular Wednesday, the company is expected to reveal several new products. The event is scheduled to take place at the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco at 10 am Pacific. The bokeh effect seen in the invite image has led some to speculate that the event will focus heavily on the dual-lens camera featured in the iPhone 7 Plus.
Lately the rumor mill has been centered around the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With the expected release date just weeks away, it's no wonder that numerous leaks and photos of the next generation iPhone have been grabbing all of the headlines. A new report from none other than Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI has reminded everyone about the other huge product release on the horizon, the Apple Watch 2.
The days of a Bluetooth link to iPhone may be numbered for Apple Watch. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple may be planning to include cellular connectivity in the next generation Apple Watch. The news comes hot on the heels of a major announcement from Apple, requiring all app submissions to be native apps built using the watchOS 2 SDK. The requirement takes effect on June 1, just weeks ahead of WWDC 2016.
