Apple Watch Series 2 unveiled with swim-proof capabilities and built-in GPS

Apple's second-generation smartwatch debuts with water-resistant capabilities.

Almost two years after the Apple Watch was first unveiled in 2014, Apple has finally pulled the curtain back on its second-generation smartwatch.

The Apple Watch Series 2 with swim-proof capabilities and built-in GPS was unveiled during Apple’s event on Wednesday. This new model has a redesigned speaker to make it water-resistant down to 50 meters. Other than that, this updated smartwatch looks near-identical to the first Apple Watch, which was only splash-proof.

The Apple Watch Series 2 comes in conjunction with watchOS 3, which Apple first unveiled this summer at WWDC. The latest iteration of watchOS 3 makes apps launch seven times faster, lets you write with your fingertip to create messages, and activity-sharing so you can compete with your friends.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
