Apple today announced that watchOS 2, the major update for the Apple Watch initially revealed at WWDC earlier this year, would be available for download on September 16th. The introduction of watchOS 2 brings in a number of new features, such as native third-party apps, third-party complications on watch faces, and improvements in performance throughout the system.

In addition to the availability of watchOS 2, Apple is also introducing new watchbands and finishes for the Apple Watch, including a rose gold finish for the Sport model. A new partnership with fashion house Hermes has resulted in three new leather straps for the Apple Watch, as well.
