    Series 0 is original Apple Watch. Series 1 is original aluminum Apple Watch with the new S2 chip (the same one that is in Series 2). Series 2 is the new Apple Watch that is swim proof, has GPS and other things.

    "swim proof" not waterproof. There isn't a watch in the world that is.

    The Apple Watch Series 2 is rated to ATM5 water resistance.

    "Apple Watch is splash and water resistant but not waterproof. You can, for example, wear and use Apple Watch during exercise, in the rain, and while washing your hands, but submerging Apple Watch is not recommended. Apple Watch has a water resistance rating of IPX7 under IEC standard 60529. The leather bands are not water resistant."

    There is no such thing as a "water proof" :apple: Watch, only water resistant.

    There is no such thing as a "Water proof" watch ANYWHERE. Even diver watches are rated to x meters.

    Drop the highest rated watch in the world here:
    The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in Earth's oceans. In 2010 the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping measured the depth of the Challenger Deep at 10,994 meters (36,070 feet) below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of ± 40 meters.

    Bring it back up and see how it fares with about 11km of water pressing down on it.

    "Water proof" means impervious to water, regardless of depth. This term should never be applied to any electronics or watches. (and likely very little else).
