  1. I like the idea of a running-focused watch. With a few carefully-selected tunes and some Bluetooth headphones, you’ve got yourself a nice system for lightweight workouts. I don’t have a watch now, so at $500+ it does seem very expensive just to get geeky about my running.

      They didn’t mention it here but the original apple watch was also improved and they now call it series 1. You could buy that one for less than the 500+. Or the series 2 with aluminum case, also. cheaper…I believe the 500+ mark is only for the stainless steel cases.

    I just feel sorry for those who bought the original apple watch edition, the gold or rose gold one. Apple ripped them off big time by selling them a $10k-17k watch that’s now outdated. What a robbery.

      Are you really as stupid as your posts suggests ?
      “Ripped them off” ? Seriously ? Back then they knew that EVERY SMART WATCH will be getting updated sooner or later… So it was THEIR choice to buy the Gold Version. If they wanted a Status Symbol they would have pick ROLEX in a heartbeat… So… Check your facts and stop being so incredibly ridiculous…

    Isn’t it a bit suspicious that there was no mention of battery life?

    exactly what about the battery life
    i assume its as bad as in the first edition since there is total silence in that part
