Apple Watch Ultra Launched: Today, the firm unveiled its brand-new, hotly anticipated rugged wristwatch in addition to the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch SE 2. Users who enjoy extreme activities and outdoor adventure will enjoy the Apple Watch Ultra. It has a larger display, special new features, a fresh, premium look, and much more. So let’s look at all of the specifics.
To begin with, the Apple Watch Ultra has a titanium casing made from aerospace-grade material, giving customers a more robust and corrosion-resistant construction. In addition, the casing has grown to 49mm in size and has been elevated to encompass the borders of the larger new display, which is flat rather than circular like the regular Watch 8 and earlier generations.

You will have to wait for the product page since, in a typical Apple manner, the corporation chose not to disclose the screen size on stage. However, the Retina display within this device is 2x brighter than any Apple Watch model and can sustain up to 2000 nits of brightness, according to the official blog post. Additionally, a sapphire crystal guards this display.

Moving on to the Apple Watch Ultra’s highlight, it now has a new Action button on the left side (painted in high-contrast international orange). This is in addition to the raised button and bigger Digital Crown on the right, which Apple claims will make it simpler to operate even with gloves. According to the blog post, the new Action button will provide “instant access to a variety of features, including Workouts, Compass Waypoints, Backtrack, and more”.
When you thought we were through with the design, think again. Apple Watch Ultra also has all-new bands intended for extreme outdoor activities enthusiasts in mind. There’s a Trail Loop for runners and athletes, an Alpine Loop with high-strength yarn and a G-hook, and an Ocean Band for those who enjoy extreme water sports and leisure diving.
Underneath the hood, Apple stated on stage that the Watch Ultra is powered by the S8 chip, an advance over the previous-generation S7 chip, but no figures were provided. Furthermore, precise dual-frequency GPS capability (integrating both L1 and L5 frequencies) is now available for more accurate location. There are also new pro running capabilities, as well as a separate compass and depth gauge applications. Other new functions, such as the temperature sensor and Crash Detection, are carried over from Watch Series 8 and watchOS 9.
