The biggest change with Apple Watch Ultra would be the sheer look of it. It’s larger with a flat 49-millimeter display and is encased in a protective titanium build. Still though, it’s running watchOS 9 with the same processor as the SE second-generation and Series 8.
As for controls the Ultra boasts a larger Digital Crown and side button on the right. The new addition here is the customizable “Action button” on the right. It’s easy to find with an “international orange” paint job. The Apple Watch Ultra features a similar sensor stack on the rear and it recharges with the same standard magnetic puck charger.
Like the Series 7 or Series 8, the Ultra supports fast charging with the cable that is included in the box. In terms of health features the Ultra can detect a fall or car crash, heart-rate, blood oxygen levels, take an ECG, and even provide skin temperature readings.
When recording a workout on the Apple Watch Ultra, you can see more with just a quick glance thanks to the larger display. Many apps are optimized to take advantage of this and Apple made a custom watch face to take advantage of this. “Wayfinder” like any other watch face can be customized with complications.
Last but not least, the Apple Watch Ultra can stretch battery life for up to 36 hours and with low power mode turned on you can stretch that into multiple days.
If you’ve been wanting to score one for yourself or someone has been asking for one, $50 off the Apple Watch Ultra is a pretty excellent deal. And it’s excellent to see it arriving in time for the holidays.
