Apple's iPhone 7 event may be over, but now is the time to unpack everything we've seen. One of the biggest announcements of the evening was the Apple Watch Series 2. At first glance, the second-generation Apple Watch is almost indistinguishable from the first. The companion device is still a familiar square shape, but it's beneath the improved OLED display that the major improvements are to be found.

Tucked away inside the water-resistant wearable is a dual-core processor that is 50 percent faster and offers double the graphics capabilities of the original. There's a brighter display, coming in at 1,000 nits, which will make it a lot more usable in direct sunlight. But how much will it cost? You can find pricing for all of the different Series 2 variations, and the lower pricing for Series 1 smartwatches, in the tables below.

Apple also has options for the Stainless Steel Case with Space Black Link Bracelet and with a Milanese Loop, which start at £699 and range up to £1,049. The Series 1 has also seen a price cut, which means the first generation wearable - complete with the new dual-core processor -- will now start at £269.
