Apple today announced the flagship Apple Watch model, Apple Watch Ultra.
Apple Watch Ultra is made of aerospace grade 49mm titanium case and features a flat sapphire crystal display. There is a new action button and larger digital crown to make it more suitable for outdoor activities. Apple Watch Ultra also comes with a 2nd speaker for improved audio and three mics for great audio calling experience.
Unlike regular Apple Watch models, all Apple Watch Ultra devices will have cellular capability built in. Apple has also included a large battery that will offer up to 36 hours of battery life on a single charge. It can last 60 hours on extended battery life.
To make the Apple Watch Ultra easier to use in outdoor environments, Apple has included a 2000 nits display. The dual-frequency GPS in Apple Watch Ultra will offer the most accurate GPS on any smartwatch.
New bands available for Apple Watch Ultra:
- Designed specifically for endurance athletes and runners, the Trail Loop band is the thinnest Apple Watch band to date. The lightweight woven textile is both soft and flexible, allowing it to cinch to the optimal fit, and the convenient tab is designed for quick and easy adjustment.
- With explorers in mind, the Alpine Loop band features two integrated layers made from one continuous weaving process that eliminates the need for stitching. The top loops, interspersed with high-strength yarn, provide adjustability and a secure attachment for the titanium G-hook fastener.
- The Ocean Band is designed specifically for extreme water sports and recreational diving with a titanium buckle and corresponding spring-loaded loop. Molded from a flexible fluoroelastomer, it stretches and utilizes the tubular geometry for a secure fit. The Ocean Band also has an optional extra-long tail that allows users to comfortably wear over a wetsuit.
The Apple Watch Ultra will cost $799 and it will be available from September 23rd.
- Customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, the UAE, the UK, the US, and more than 40 other countries and regions can order Apple Watch Ultra today, with availability in stores beginning Friday, September 23.
