The Apple Watch Series 2 was a third generation water resistent smartwatch designed and produced by Apple Inc. It was released on September 16, 2016, alongside the iPhone 7, which also was the first iPhone to be water resistent. It preceded the Apple Watch Series 3, and succeeded the Apple Watch Series 1.


The Series 2 came in two sizes like all the other models: a 38mm and a 42mm case size with matching band sizes for both. You could also get stainless steel and ceramic cases.

This was the first watch to have water resistence and 2 new limited editions--Hermes, which used Hermes Paris' design and material on the Apple Watch. There was also a limited edition which used ceramic in place of the regular aluminum case.



Apple has collaborated with Hermes Paris multiple times, and Hermes Apple Watches use Hermes leather bands and come with a Hermes orange sport band that is included in the box by default. For more about the Hermes edition, go to Apple Watch Hermes.


A special edition Nike+ version of the Series 2 was made with added benefits such as a map of your run, special custom watch faces, some that represent various Nike products, the Nike+ Run Culb app built-in, and exclusive Nike bands.


The Series 2 had an all-new case that was made of ceramic. For more about the Edition models, go to Apple Watch Edition.
