One of the key introductions at today's Apple keynote is the Apple Watch Series 2. The wearable tech is being dubbed as the ultimate device for a healthy life.

First off, the Apple Watch Series 2 is water-resistant to 50 meters, allowing you to wear it while swimming, in addition to boasting built-in GPS, a dual-core processor, watchOS 3, and a noticeably brighter display. The watch also makes it easier to utilize third party apps and Apple Pay, all while providing you with more convenient response to notification options.

Again, as you can now wear the watch while swimming or surfing, it can in turn count laps, track average lap pace and auto-detect stroke type to accurately measure active calorie burn. The built-in GPS then records precise distance, pace and speed for outdoor workouts such as walking, running or cycling, without needing to take an iPhone.

Thanks to the dual-core processor, the Apple Watch Series 2 is now up to 50 percent faster and also features greater graphics performance, while the display is two times brighter than the previous model.

The implementation of WatchOS 3 means that it's now even simpler to launch your favorite apps, either from the watch face or with the new dock, which displays the latest information already updated in the background.

Finally, new watch faces include Minnie Mouse, activity and numerals, as all you have to do is swipe edge-to-edge to swap out a new watch face and with the new Face Gallery in the Apple Watch app on iPhone.

Apple Watch Series 2 (starting at $369 USD) is scheduled to release on Friday, September 16, in lightweight aluminum or stainless steel cases, paired with a wide variety of new band colors.
