Apple introduced their new Premium 'Apple Watch Ultra' that is Aimed at the Extreme Sport and Recreational Diving Markets
Only second to Apple's iPhone Pro Keynote segment, the introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra was without a doubt another great segment with some real punch. Apple's bold new design and a wide range of features built for endurance, exploration, and adventure was a real eye-opener.
Apple Watch Ultra introduces a 49mm titanium case (patented) and flat sapphire front crystal that reveals the biggest and brightest Apple Watch display yet. A customizable Action button offers instant access to a wide range of useful features.
Apple Watch Ultra has the best battery life of any Apple Watch, reaching up to 36 hours during normal use. Additionally, a new low-power setting, ideal for multi-day experiences, can extend battery life to reach up to 60 hours. The Wayfinder watch face is designed specifically for the larger Apple Watch Ultra display and includes a compass built into the dial, with space for up to eight complications. Apple Watch Ultra also brings three new bands — Trail Loop, Alpine Loop, and Ocean Band — offering unique design features that provide a secure and comfortable fit for every adventure.
Apple Watch Ultra is available to order today, with availability beginning Friday, September 23.
Jeff Williams, Apple’s Chief Operating Officer: "Inspired by explorers and athletes from around the world, we created an entirely new category of Apple Watch designed for new and extreme environments — it’s the most rugged and capable Apple Watch yet. Apple Watch Ultra is a versatile tool that empowers users to push their boundaries with adventure, endurance, and exploration."

Julz Arney walks us through some of the key features. With a single press of the Action button, users can quickly drop a Compass Waypoint or start or view a Backtrack. An 86-decibel siren is designed for emergencies, should users become lost or injured, and can help draw attention to a location. The unique sound signature incorporates two distinct alternating patterns, which can repeat for up to several hours. The first pattern suggests distress, while the second mimics the universally recognized SOS pattern.
