October 6, 2015

Almost 2 weeks ago, Apple officially released their 1st major upgrade to the Apple Watch, watchOS 2. However watchOS 2 was suppose to launch alongside iOS 9, Apple discovered a major bug inside the OS that needed to be worked out, delaying the launch a few days.

watchOS 2 introduces quite a few improvements and changes compared to watchOS 1. Here’s a rundown of the new features:

  • New Watch Faces (Time Lapse, Photo, Photo Album)
  • Tim Travel & Complications, offering important information at a glance
  • Nightstand Mode
  • Natively-Running Applications
  • Developer Access to elements in Watch like Digital Crown, Taptic Engine, heart rate sensor, and speaker
  • Reply to Email right on Watch
  • More Room for “Friends” (Contacts)
  • Multi-Color Watch-to-Watch Messaging
  • Transit Information
  • Discover & Store Credit Card Support in Apple Pay
  • Improved version of Siri
watchOS 2 is also much speedier than before, thanks to the lightness of the OS Apple developed and the fact that an app’s data can now be stored locally on the Watch using the internal memory.

All of these great features and improvements should be enough to attract everyone who owns an Apple Watch, but has it attracted you?
