    I've been searching for benchmarks for the new processor in the Series 2 and Series 1. Has anyone measured performance on these yet?

    I recall reading that the S1 processor was equivalent to the iPhone 4s' A5 processor and am wondering if the new processor is at the iPhone 5 A6 level of performance.

    Where did your read that?

    Yesterday I read about S1P and S2 being equal in terms of performance, but I didn't read an in depth analysis between first gen Watch and series 2 in terms of cpu speed and didn't read about a direct compare between Watch and iPhone.
    Display resolution is very different, so the kind of apps you run on the system. An iPhone needs a faster GPU because of its resolution and even the CPU should be faster on a phone.
    I guess the Watch SiP is really good at power consumption, that's what really matters on a wearable.
    If you have any link I'd be happy to read it :) thanks

    All I have read is the usual news reports that contain little more than a headline and a sentence or two.
    Here's an example from last year:
