Apple’s new watch for adventurers is its largest and baddest yet: the Apple Watch Ultra. Built to withstand harsh environments and extreme sports activities, the ultra is also capable of connecting to LTE networks for enhanced connectivity compared to non-cellular models.
Apple Watch Ultra offers many advantages over its predecessors, particularly its larger display that’s 7% bigger than Series 8. This extra space makes reading your data in bright sunlight easier, while its 2,000 nits brightness doubles that of Series 8 models.
It’s fortunate that the screen is large because it is both responsive and fast. Utilizing the same S8 SiP 64-bit dual-core processor as used in Series 7 and 8 watches, no speed drops should occur when making transitions from either of those watches to this new device.
Action Button Makes Workouts Easier
One of the key features of Apple Watch Ultra is its Action Button, which can help make workouts simpler. Set it to launch fitness apps or start workouts when needed; turn on flashlight or pause currently playing one; etc.
Your Action Button can also be set to open the compass app, which automatically generates waypoints if you’re lost. In case of emergency situations there’s also an 86 decibel emergency siren which Apple states can be heard up to 180 meters away.
It features a larger battery than its Series 8 counterpart, giving it up to 36 hours of run time on one charge compared to 24 for its 41mm counterpart; although still significantly less than some competitors.
Apple Watch Ultra for Athelete
Are You an Athlete Who Needs Track Their Performance For athletes who require tracking their performance, the Apple Watch Ultra offers more in-depth training metrics than Series 8, such as heart rate zones, power, elevation (even running stride length efficiency metrics) as well as creating custom workouts with AirPods to share them with fellow exercisers.
Workouts themselves are also highly accurate, using wrist haptic feedback and AirPods to track distance and time intervals accurately. Although not as advanced or precise as watches like Garmin and Polar, this is still an excellent choice if you require tracking your training more in-depth.
Water resistance is one of the primary selling points of the Apple Watch Ultra and it far surpasses expectations compared to similar watches from competitors like Pebble or Tag Heuer. Able to survive a 10-foot drop into water, making it ideal for swimming and snorkeling adventures alike.
