During today's big media event, Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 2, with an emphasis on the wearable's swimproof and activity tracking features. To a lesser degree, the company mentioned the casing materials -- aluminum, stainless steel, and now ceramic -- and detailed new versions of its bands created with collaborator Hermès.

Interestingly, it didn't divulge any of the new versions of its own first-party bands and collections, of which there are quite a few. Below we'll list out each new collection of the Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 by case type. Unless specifically designated, each collection has both 38mm and 42mm sizes.

Aluminum Cases

For aluminum, the pricing structure is as follows: $269 (38mm) and $299 (42mm) for Series 1 models, and $369 (38mm) and $399 (42mm) for Series 2 models.

To me, the new watch makes good on the promise of the original apple watch concept. It is far more versatile now. People will want this. They generally DON'T want to wear a Garmin sports watch all day long. It has nothing like the interface, functionality, or (most importantly) style, of the Apple Watch. You would not go to a business meeting wearing a garmin. You would not go to a nightclub wearing a garmin. Whereas you absolutely would engage in these activities, wearing an apple watch.

As a swimmer, the new additions really make me think I should sell my stainless steel 42mm apple watch and upgrade... I mean, come on, after a workout the speaker spits out any water remaining on the driver. That's amazing!

Any guesses on how much I'd get for my stainless steel 42mm Apple Watch? Should I sell it on eBay, or Craigslist? Be interested in your views. Thanks!

The Apple Watch 2 definitely did not sway me as much as I thought it would. Still on the fence. Glad they got rid of the Apple Watch Edition. That was a joke. The ceramic looks interesting.

This is idiotic. Sell the watch itself alone and let customers pick a band.

Actually having to going through and organize all of this proved to me how insane it is that we can't just make our own collection. I would buy a Stainless Steel Case with Sea Blue Classic Buckle in 42mm but Apple doesn't think that's a good idea out of the gate I guess:\
