Aquatics pros are going to swoon over the new Apple Watch 2, perhaps the coolest new gadget to hit the aquatics fitness market in a while. And today they are available in stores.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the second generation watch is that it caters to swimmers. But the waterproof aspect of the device is appealing to more than just Katie Ledecky. Sure the watch can withstand depths up to 50m, making it a great tool for tracking performance in the pool or open water (just no scuba diving!), but it also means those working with water, including lifeguards and facility operators, can benefit, too. Not only will you be able to remain connected and on schedule while also tracking your fitness, but you'll be worry free when testing the waters, so to speak.

Anything that promotes swimming and aquatics as a healthy lifestyle activity is a plus for the industry, and if it's Apple setting the trend, the world will be following. Check out all of the features in the new Apple Watch Series 2.
