Apple Watch Ultra is the costliest Apple Watch ever! Here’s all you need to know

Along with the iPhone 14 Series and the AirPods Pro 2nd Generation, Apple also announced the Watch Ultra, its first rugged wristwatch. It includes a new striking appearance and a variety of features designed for endurance, exploration, and adventure.

Apple Watch Ultra Top Features:

Rugged Design:

The Apple Watch Ultra is made of aerospace-grade titanium and offers the ideal blend of weight, durability, and corrosion resistance. It features a 49mm titanium case with a flat sapphire front crystal.  The shell lifts up to protect the Retina display, which is up to 2000 nits brighter than any other Apple Watch display to date.

The new Action button in high-contrast international orange may be easily customised to provide quick access to features such as Workouts, Compass Waypoints, Backtrack, and more.

The Apple Watch Ultra boasts three built-in microphones that considerably increase voice call sound quality in all settings. An adaptive beamforming technology captures voice while decreasing ambient background noise, resulting in exceptional clarity. Apple Watch Ultra features powerful wind noise-reduction technologies, including machine learning, in demanding windy situations to deliver clear and intelligible audio for calls.

New Bands for all conditions:

The thinnest Apple Watch band to date, the Trail Loop band is made exclusively for endurance sports and runners. The convenient tab is made for quick and simple adjustment, and the lightweight woven fabric is soft and flexible, allowing it to cinch to the ideal fit.

The Alpine Loop band was designed with adventurers in mind and has two interwoven layers manufactured from a single continuous weaving technique, which does not require stitching. The top loops offer adjustability and a secure attachment for the titanium G-hook fastener. They are dotted with high-strength yarn.

The Ocean Band has a titanium buckle and accompanying spring-loaded loop that are specifically made for recreational diving and extreme water sports. It was moulded from a stretchable fluoroelastomer that makes use of the tubular design for a tight fit. The Ocean Band also comes with an extra-long tail that is optional and can be worn comfortably over a wetsuit.

Made for Explorers:

With its larger, brighter display and durable build, Apple Watch Ultra is ideal for adventurers and explorers in everyday and extreme conditions. The revised Compass app in watchOS 9 offers more detail and three angles. The app presents a combination analog/digital compass view. Turning the Digital Crown provides latitude, longitude, elevation, and inclination, as well as Compass Waypoints and Backtrack.

Compass Waypoints are a simple method to mark a location in the app. Pressing Action or pressing Compass Waypoint drops a waypoint that can be changed. Compass Waypoint constantly updates direction and distance in real time.

Backtrack uses GPS data to generate a path showing where the user has been, which helps if they get lost or disoriented. Off-grid, it can turn on automatically. Users can drop a Compass Waypoint or start or view a Backtrack with one button push.

A 86-decibel siren might assist call attention to a location if someone is lost or injured. The unique sound signature repeats two alternating patterns for hours. First pattern conveys distress, second resembles SOS. Low Power Mode and another low-power mode can prolong battery life to 60 hours for multi-day backpacking expeditions.

The wrist operating temperature ranges from -4° F (-20° C) in the highlands to 131° F (55° C) in the desert. Apple Watch Ultra is MIL-STD-810H certified, a military and robust equipment standard. Low pressure (altitude), high/low temperatures, temperature shock, fluid contamination, rain, humidity, immersion, sand/dust, freeze/thaw, ice/freezing rain, shock, vibration, and more are tested. Turning the Digital Crown reddens the Wayfinder interface for nighttime use.

Watch OS 9, ECG, Crash Detection and More:

Apple Watch Ultra has all of the connectivity, activity, and health features that have made Apple Watch the best-selling smartwatch in the world, like heart rate tracking and the ECG and Blood Oxygen apps. It also has extra health, safety, and navigation features.

The Apple Watch Ultra has a revolutionary new way to measure temperature, which gives more information about a woman’s health. The two-sensor design eliminates bias from both the outside world and the body itself. With the new features, users can get estimates of when they ovulated in the past, which can be helpful for planning a family. Temperature sensing also lets people who get their period predict it more accurately.

Users of Cycle Tracking on iOS 16 and watchOS 9 will now get a notification if their cycle history shows a possible divergence, which could be a sign of a health problem.

With Crash Detection, Apple Watch can use two new motion sensors and an advanced sensor-fusion algorithm to tell when a serious car crash has happened. When the Apple Watch senses a serious car accident, it will check on the user and call 911 after 10 seconds if they don’t respond. The location of the user’s device is sent to first responders and shared with emergency contacts.

Long Battery Life:

The Apple Watch Ultra offers the longest battery life of any Apple Watch, lasting up to 36 hours under normal conditions. A new low-power level, perfect for multi-day adventures, can further prolong battery life to up to 60 hours.
