Tonight, Apple presented its new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus to the world (read: Keynote: Apple unveils the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus). At the same time, the apple company presented the second generation of smartwatch, called Apple Watch Series 2.

Compared to the first Apple Watch of the name, this second version of the connected watch sports a similar design. However, many changes have been made, including an improvement in its waterproofness as announced by rumors. The Apple Watch Series 2 is resistant to immersion up to 50 meters deep.

At the same time, the Californian brand presented a new white model with a ceramic case that should appeal to fans, as well as a version of the smart watch made in partnership with Nike. Regarding the price of this Apple Watch Series 2, it starts at $ 369, the classic Apple Watch rising to $ 269.
