The Apple Watch Series 2 models were called “the ultimate device for a healthy life” and added “incredible fitness and health capabilities including a water resistance 50 meter rating for swimming, and built-in GPS so users can now run without an iPhone.” The announcement for the Apple Watch Series 2 was made on September 7, 2016, approximately one year after the announcement of the original Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Series 2 models included a dual core processor, water resistance to 50 meters, and built-in GPS. This Apple Watch Series 2 model is a the Nike+ version in the 42 mm size and featured a 312×390 display with an anodized aluminum case.
The Apple Watch Series 2 Nike+ configurations had a custom Nike+ fluroelastomer band with compression-molded perforations—also known as holes—that reduced weight and improved ventilation. The Nike+ models included custom Nike-branded watch faces. There originally were four Apple Watch Nike+ configurations:
- silver aluminum case with silver/volt (neon yellow) Nike sport band
- silver aluminum case with silver/white Nike sport band
- space gray aluminum case with black/volt (neon yellow) Nike sport band
- space gray aluminum case with black/cool gray Nike sport band
This Apple Watch was purchased with the silver/volt band. In this photo, the band has been replaced with a midnight blue leather loop.
