Single Sign-on Missing from tvOS 10 Update

Not only because the iPhone 7 remained the focus, there's weren't any out-of-the box features like the promised cellular connectivity.

The model still has the same features as the previous model, which syncs up only with iPhones.

Based on display size, meanwhile, the Apple Watch Series 2 has a larger 1.65-inch display, although the 1.35-inch screen of the Gear S3 isn't really far behind.

The Watch Series 2 comes with an nearly identical design as its predecessor. A rectangular display and the noted crown control. The new case for this model will be made up of ceramics that is said to be four times harder than stainless steel.

However, it's the internals that have got a bump. There's also an upgraded GPU which processes graphics twice as fast. The sluggish user interface with apps opening slowly was a primary concern when the Apple Watch launched, and while the update to watchOS 2 helped, the third-generation operating system is in another league.

The screen brightness has doubled (1,000 nits vs. 450 nits). It will be open more easily and with just a swipe.

However, it's the fitness aspect that takes away the brownie points. Numbers is one of the more basic watch faces for the Apple Watch, with hands and a single number.

The new Apple Watch ticks closer to being the techie timepiece it was always clocked up to be. The addition of Global Positioning System and better water resistance make it more of a fitness tracker.

Have you received notification of your Apple Watch Series 2 being delayed?

For the users of Apple Watch in a wheelchair, the company added a new wheelchair setting that changes how the device calculates tracks and activity. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, and tap on the My Watch tab. In the pool swim workout, you first tell the watch the length of the pool. "We like that a lot", adds Pocket-Lint.

According to the WSJ, a user can see the battery level drop by one-fifth after a 20-minute jog with the music turned on. But in the new watchOS 3, pressing this button will pull up your favourite apps. Instant Performance & Simple Navigation It is easier and faster than ever to perform common tasks with watchOS 3, including replying to a message, starting a Workout or skipping a song. "Glances didn't actually solve this problem, though, because Glances were so infrequently refreshed with up-to-date data". What is more, the device is waterproofed with swimmers (or shower enthusiasts) in mind. And, it does that well.

The SOS mode allows the Apple Watch to display dial emergency services. Some may have desired a more strikingly different design - though, hey, last year's straps still fit! - but it remains the best-looking smart watch around.

Breathe isn't exclusive to Apple Watch Series 2.

The watch will automatically detect your swimming stroke, swim distance, number of laps, lap times, calories and even your average heart rate.

PocketLint says the Series 2 is a "fitness first" device.

Daring Fireball's John Gruber focuses on the combination of software (watchOS 3) and the hardware (Watch Series 2), and thinks the new ceramic Edition makes much more sense than the ridiculous gold one.
