As per reports, Apple has succeeded in providing an incredible device. Tech enthusiasts are surprised by the gadget’s performance. One of the most talked-about features of the Apple Watch Series 2 is its water-resistance feature. The device has passed all water-resistance tests and the units are working as per the specs.

The Apple Watch Series 2 devices are supposed to withstand immersion in water up to 50 metres for 10 minutes. As per iTech Post, the watches are functioning properly though they would be observed for 24 hours before arriving at a conclusion.

Other tests were carried out with respect to its heart-rate monitor, readability, step tracking features and other such features. The tests concluded that all features are working perfectly fine and are fully reliable. Its built-in GPS chip allows more advanced tracking.

The Apple Watch Series 2 has reportedly put a lot of focus on physical activity. The updated operating system, watchOS 3 now allows users share their workout data with others.

While everything seems to be working fine for the Apple Watch Series 2, users are complaining about a strange hissing noise in iPhone 7. It was first detected by Stephen Hackett at 512 Pixels after which many started reporting the same problem.

Marco Arment, Tumblr co-founder and iOS developer said that the noise may be happening for a good reason but such as sound by Apple’s iPhone 7 is both ungraceful and unfortunate.
