In order to attract customers who want more from their device—whether they are preparing for a marathon or simply enjoy being outside—Apple Watch Ultra, a larger model, has been offered. According to Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer, “Inspired by adventurers and athletes from around the world, we created a completely new category of Apple Watch tailored for new and harsh situations – it’s the most durable and capable Apple Watch yet.”
The Apple Watch Ultra is a new iteration of the well-known smart watch from Apple featuring a larger screen and a more robust build. The Apple Watch Ultra will go on sale in Australia on September 23. It will cost $1,299 to purchase. The Apple Watch Ultra sports a bigger, aerospace-grade titanium case, a strengthened screen, and a 49mm watch face. With a starting price of $629, the Apple Watch Series 8 maintains its 41mm and 45mm sizes. The selling date is September 16.
Apple Watch Ultra also includes a loud siren so you can be found in remote areas and a GPS track back features so you can find your way back to your point of origin. It can also handle extreme temperatures and can be taken underwater with a host of features for scuba divers exploring the underwater world. Health and Wellness continue to be at the centre of Apple Watch Series 8 and include an electrical heart sensor, ECG and a blood oxygen sensor. For the first time Apple Watch has a new cycle tracking features and a temperature sensor. This can help women track their ovulation more accurately and receive updated cycle notifications – valuable information for a woman who is trying to conceive.
“Apple Watch Ultra is a versatile tool that empowers users to push their boundaries with adventure, endurance and exploration.” It has an orange action button to switch between training modes and more speakers so it can be clearly heard outside and up to 2000nits brightness so it can also be clearly seen. The Apple Watch Ultra has 36 hours battery life and up to 60 hours in low power mode. GPS performance provides even more accurate metrics for serious athletes with dual frequency receivers to make it even more accurate in areas with tall buildings and other obstructions.
Apple Watch SE users can enjoy the benefits of the new Compass app in addition to the enhanced fitness and wellness features. Apple Watch SE is available in 40mm and 44mm aluminium cases, in midnight, starlight and silver finishes, and is compatible with all bands.
The stainless steel Apple Watch Series will be available in silver, gold and graphite
Apple has also updated the new Apple Watch SE and now has the same processor as in Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra, making it 20 per cent faster than the previous generation and will also include Crash Detection.
