Is VoiceOver more responsive on the Series 2 Apple Watch?

watchOS and Apple Watch Apps

Hi all on applevis
I want to know that Does the series to Apple Watch is much responsive then the series 1 Apple Watch?
I mean in the first Apple Watch there is a delay in VoiceOver
wen we flik on screen or when you open the app there was a delay if you flick fast you can feel the delay, but I wanted to know is this the same case with the series to watch?
I went to the Apple Store but in demmo watchs you cant turn on voiceover

If anyone have any experience then kindly Share thank you

I purchased my series 2 Apple Watch yesterday and can report that at least in my limited testing so far, Voiceover seems very, very much more responsive. This is especially noticeable in flicking through complications and applications, passcode entry, options in quick reply mode in texts, etc. I'm very glad I upgraded.

I believe the same could be said for the new Series 1 watch as well as both it and the Series 2 have the same processor. That combined with Watch OS 3, I am sure VoiceOver responsiveness is a lot more snappy.

I myself am looking at buying the Series 1 as the Series 2 is still a little pricey for my taste, and being that the Series 1 has the same processor as the Series 2, I figured that the Series 1 would be more up my alley.

I am curious to know if there are also others who bought the Series 1 and even more curious to know if my suspicions are correct.

Thank you so much for all of your replies, I'm confused, should I go for the iPhone 7 Plus? or should I go for the Apple Watch? right now I have the iPhone 6 s Plus
I never use the Apple Watch, does having a watch is an advantage?
What about the volume of the series to watch, does it is louder than the previous watch?

To be honest, I bought the 7 plus because I am a developer and wanted the new phone to test the taptic engine. I also felt that the new taptic engine would open a lot of interesting possibilities for tactile feedback in the UI for accessibility and through third-party applications, but as of now this isn't really the case. As far as responsiveness, I honestly think the 6S is a great phone and while the 7 is the latest and greatest thing, you wouldn't necessarily need to upgrade unless you are terribly bothered by lag or really, really want that new Taptic engine or feel that you would benefit from the extra ruggedization in the new phone.
As for the watch, whether or not you need one depends heavily on your potential use case. What sorts of activities do you see yourself doing with the watch? Would you enjoy having the additional access to notifications on your wrist and to more detailed fitness information? I personally find that for me, the watch is worth it for taptic time, for being alerted of mail, calendar, message, and Slack notifications on my wrist, and for fitness and health tracking. I also am a person who hates loud talking watches and who is put off by the fragility of Braille ones. I wanted a watch that was attractive and unobtrusively performed the functions I needed it to, while being rugged enough to withstand an occasional dip in the pool or a trip and fall while being worn by a fairly clumsy Megan. My choices were between the Bradley timepiece which I felt was frankly overpriced and just looked strange, the Tissot silenT Touch which was a little expensive and quite large for my wrist, or the Apple watch. I figured if I was going to pony up several hundred dollars for a watch, I might as well get one that did a bunch of extra neat things, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. As evidenced, I guess, by the fact that I jumped on the Apple train and shelled out again for stainless steel generation 2. *smile*
All this, though, to say that just as the Apple Watch is a very personal device, the decision to purchase one is a very personal choice. My reasons for buying and liking mine might actually be why you despise yours if you get it. I know people who love it and people who hate it. So ultimately, I'd say your best bet is to consider your use case. If you want, consider all the things you do in a day that might be enhanced by the watch. And remember that if you buy it and hate it, you have 14 days to return it.
Happy decision-making!
