    What did you think was the biggest perk of series 2? How much better is it really?

    Main difference I have noticed is it updating quicker due to the faster processor on the 2.

    Screen is also brighter for better view outside or in the sun.

    Other than that I really do not notice that much of a speed difference when using the apps.

    Speed difference, screen brightness in bright light and most of all the battery (42mm SS S2)

    In my case, the battery life on the S2 is so much better. I put my watch on around 7:30a and take it off around 10:30p on average. My old S1 would be at 20% battery or lower most days when I took it off. With same daily usage, my S2 is usually still at 65% or above when I take it off.

    Battery improvement is the biggest. Speed is noticeable, but not major. The screen brightness is twice as bright as the first Gen Watch/Series 1.
