Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Ultra 2 t today's Wonderlust event, succeeding its premium model from the previous year.
This upgraded version receives the same internal updates seen in the Apple Watch Series 9.
There had been whispers about Apple developing a black titanium version of the Apple Watch ultra which ultimately have not panned out to be true for 2023.
The newly announced Apple Watch Ultra 2 is powered by the same S9 chip seen in the Series 9, which is responsible for its fluid animations. It also includes a U2 ultra-wideband location mechanism.
Thanks to the new neural engine in the S9 chip, Siri operates directly on the device. In an upcoming update, Siri will grant access to users' health information.
The screen brightness of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is 3,000 nits making it the brightest display ever in an Apple product.
The innovative U2 chip helps users locate their iPhone with extreme accuracy. Additionally, as one approaches a HomePod, the chip offers media recommendations or controls for currently playing tracks.
A new interaction introduced with this model is the double-tap function, useful for tasks like accepting or declining calls and pausing alarms, similar to features on the Series 9.
When on energy-saving mode, the battery can last a remarkable 72 hours.
In a commitment to the environment, Apple confirms that the production of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is entirely carbon neutral.
Apple Watch Ultra 2 is available for preorder today from Apple for $799.
