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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
