Apple have expanded their Apple Watch offering from Apple Watch to Apple Watch SE and now the new TOUGH explorer Apple Watch Ultra. Built on a titanium chassis, the Apple Watch Ultra is able to withstand extreme from -20°C to 55°C. It is also built for diving with up to 100 meters water resistance and it’s able to function as a dive computer with future updates via Oceanic+ app.
It also comes with precision dual-frequency GPS for better accuracy when trekking in dense foliage which might block out satellites. Reducing the errors to help you stay on track. It’s also easy for you to drop new waypoint for quick direction bearing on the watch’s compass. The more info you have, the less likely you will get lost.
It also comes with a battery life for up to 36 hours for normal usage and it can go up to 60 hours on low power settings. All thought it’s not much, but that’s already way better than the current Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Ultra Design
That distinctive flat sapphire crystal watch face and enlarged Digital Crown will make Apple Watch Ultra stands out from the crowd. The watch face will also be bigger at 49mm compared to Apple Watch’s biggest 45mm. The Ultra will also have a new Action Button which you can customise to trigger a function to an app that you will find useful for your exploration.
Based on the type of adventure, Apple have created different straps specialised for your best comfort during your adventure. They have the Alpine Loop for hiking, Trail Loop for running and the Ocean Band for diving.
