I was not a fan of the Apple Watch Series 1 because it lacked a GPS and water resistance. The Apple Watch Series 2 is an impressive device though! Being able to use it as a GPS to track my workouts and/or backpacking hikes is amazing! Since it’s water resistant, I can wear it when I swim or sweat a lot too! I purchased the Apple Watch 2 aluminum model because of the lesser price. Hopefully the glass will hold up well to unexpected knocks and bangs. There are a plethora of third-party Apple Watch straps and bracelets to choose from and they can be taken on and off without tools. It’s great! My only complaint in regards to the Apple Watch Series 2 so far has been battery life. With intense GPS usage, the battery on mine was around 30% towards the end of one day of heavy use. That’s a small gripe for such an impressive wearable device though!
