In the months since the release we’ve seen apps add more features to the Apple Watch and software updates increase the functionality to help users be more productive, lose weight, get in shape and we even used it to save money by earning extra cash back with Discover Apple Pay in 2015.

Apple just announced the Apple Watch Series 2 (aka Apple Watch 2) and the Apple Watch Series 1. Apple Watch Series 2 is a massive upgrade with a waterproof design, upgraded processor and built-in GPS. The Apple Watch Series 1 is the Apple Watch, but with a better processor.

The Apple Watch Series 1 price starts at $269 for the Apple Watch Sport and goes up for the Apple Watch at $599. We’ve seen several Apple Watch deals knock $50 to $100 off at Best Buy and other retailers. The Apple Watch Series 2 is $369 and $399 for the Sport version with a 38mm and 42mm face respectively.

You will need an iPhone to use the Apple Watch, and many of the things you can do with the Apple Watch relies on this connectivity. The Apple Watch is not an iPhone Watch that replaces the phone in your pocket, but the Apple Watch 2 might be.

Later this year new watchOS 3.0 features will make your Apple Watch faster, add more controls, new watchfaces and deliver very important upgrades. This will connect with the iOS 10 features to let your Apple Watch do more.

Instead the Apple Watch delivers faster access to many of your common activities. This is not the first smart watch, nor is it the first watch that connects to the iPhone, but it is definitely one that interests a lot of users.

Answer Calls on the Apple Watch

You can answer a call on your Apple Watch using it as a small Bluetooth speaker phone. After using a similar feature from a Samsung watch we know you'll definitely want to use this only for short calls and to be conscious of where you are taking calls. If you wouldn't talk on speakerphone, you shouldn't talk on your Apple Watch.

You cannot answer a FaceTime or FaceTime Audio call on the Apple Watch. You can choose to answer and transfer a call to the iPhone.
