Like the Apple Watch Series 2, the Apple Watch Series 1 shares a design borrowed from the original Apple Watch, but includes a new dual-core processor and GPU package that allows for greater app performance.

Missing from the Series 1 are new seals and internal design features that make Apple Watch Series 2 “swim-proof.” The updated original also lacks the new, brighter display that ships with Series 2.

Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted the rebranded Apple Watch Series 1 version earlier this year.
