Apple Watch Ultra is ready for extreme sports

Apple held its latest hardware event today, where it announced a handful of new smartwatches. We have the Apple Watch Series 8, as well as a review of the Apple Watch SE. But if you need something that can keep up with your active lifestyle, the Apple Watch Ultra might be the one for you.

The Apple Watch Ultra is a newcomer to Apple’s watch lineup and, according to the company, took “years of work”. This is Apple’s most premium smartwatch, as well as the most rugged, by far. The watch itself is made from aerospace-grade titanium, and the front display crystal is sapphire. It can be used with gloves, with a larger digital control and protruding side buttons for easier use. Oh, and it also has a very cool orange action button, which is also customizable, allowing you to start workouts and more.

One of the biggest improvements is the battery. While the Apple Watch Series 8 offers up to 18 hours of battery life (36 hours with the new Low Power Mode), the Apple Watch Ultra doubles that, with a whopping 36 hours of battery life without any power optimization. battery. It’s the biggest battery in any Apple Watch to date, and it packs a heck of a punch. It also has an ultra-low-power Training mode, which provides enough battery life for long-distance triathlons.

The Watch Ultra is also very robust. It is MIL-STD-810 certified, as well as EN13319 compliant. You can dive with it up to 40 meters deep (Apple has shown how it can be used as a scuba diving instructor), and it can also be used for other water activities, like kite surfing. The watch also features a new dual-frequency L5 GPS solution which Apple says is the most accurate GPS of any smartwatch to date. Last but not least, it has a built-in 86 decibel siren that you can activate from up to 180 meters away.

The Apple Watch Ultra will be available starting at $799. It will be available from September 23, and you can order it today.
