Meet Apple Watch Ultra. It’s the Apple Watch taken to new levels of robustness and capability. Built with adventure and exploration in mind, it features a robust titanium case, precision dual-frequency GPS, the freedom of cellular connectivity, and up to 36 hours of battery life. Plus the other great health, fitness and wellbeing features of Apple Watch, this takes the sports watch experience to the next level of endeavour.
Every element is crafted with painstaking attention to detailed for peak performance. Titanium strikes an ideal balance between weight and ruggedness. The case design rises up to surround the flat sapphire crystal and protect it from edge impacts, and the digital crown is larger than the regular Apple Watch, and the side button is raised, so they’re easier to use when wearing gloves.
Bigger, brighter display, with Night Mode
Direct sunlight is no obstacle for an Always On Retina display that’s an eye opening 2,000 nits and twice as bright as a regular Apple Watch. And the bigger display provides more room for workout metrics and detail packed watch faces. The Wayfinder face features a time dial that can be switched to a live compass, and in low-light situations, you can rotate the Digital Crown to activate Night mode and see the watch face turn a vivid red.
This gives you quick, physical control over a variety of functions. It’s customisable and can do things like control a workout, mark a Compass Waypoint or begin a dive.
It’s swimproof down to a depth of 100 metres. Apple Watch Ultra features a depth gauge. It also delivers the data and functionality required by scuba and free divers for descents down to 40 metres.
It has an innovative sensor that tracks your temperature while you sleep, so you can see changes over time. Cycle Tracking uses this data to provide a retrospective estimate of when you likely ovulated. When combined with your heart rate and logged cycle data, you’ll get a detailed view of your menstrual cycle.
The Sleep app doesn’t just keep track of your time asleep. It shows you how much time you spent in REM, Core or Deep sleep, as well as when you might have woken up.
Apple Watch Ultra's blood oxygen sensor incorporates LEDs and photodiodes in the back crystal. You can easily take readings of your blood oxygen, or let the watch capture background readings, day and night, to provide this key indicator of your overall wellness.
Squat, spin, stride, you name it…Apple Watch has a workout for it in the enhanced Workout app. And with Workout Views, you’ll be able to see more advanced metrics at a glance, like Heart Rate Zones and customised intervals to keep you going strong.
