If you want to get an upgrade to the watch on your wrist, then you need to see about adorning your wrist with the Apple Watch Ultra.

It’s got a lot of advantages, so you can very easily call it an ultra item, and the first comes with the fact that it is tough. If you’ve ever held back on your movements because you were afraid that your sports watch was going to shatter, then the Apple Watch Ultra has you covered!

Apple Watch Ultra With Retina

The watch is made from titanium, which strikes the perfect balance between weight, ruggedness and corrosion resistance as well. Additionally, the watch is designed to defend itself from edge impacts, and you can even use it while wearing gloves thanks to the raised digital crown and side button.

Apple Watch Ultra Straps

It is also water resistant, tested to the MIL-STD 810H3 (military standards for withstanding environmental hazards) and has IP6X dust resistance so you know that this thing is very durable and ready to take on whatever you put through it. But of course, the benefits do not end there, and here are some of the major benefits of the Apple Watch Ultra!

Key Features

Comes with the biggest Apple Watch Display. It comes with an Always On Retina display that is twice as bright as any other apple watch. This means that you can see everything you could need for your workout metrics and all of the details on your watch faces. Additionally, you can use the digital crown to get into night mode with only a few small button pushes as well.

Everything is fitted in a compact space: You have a siren, speakers, GPS antenna, and the customizable action button all in one place. You can look at maps, mark a waypoint, make calls and listen to music, or even use the siren to attract help all on the same side of the watch. The best part is that they are all compactly placed!

Full battery life: There’s nothing worse than going on a long backpacking trip or diving along a coral reef and then hearing the notification that you have run out of battery. However, the Apple Watch Ultra is able to take on your longest activities and still have room to spare. You can get up to 36 hours of battery life on normal use, and up to 60 hours of battery use on low power settings.

Comes with a ‘training partner.’ If you want to learn more about yourself as an athlete, then you can see the numbers and the data about your workouts right on your wrist. Along with your heart rate, running form and even an action button to control your workouts.


Product Drawbacks

If you are looking at getting an Apple Watch Ultra, then you do need to be aware of a few small drawbacks.

  • The Apple Watch Ultra can be a bit too sporty for a watch that is trying to market itself as a rugged sports watch. It’s a lot of watch for an athletic person, and it is mostly going to be helpful for weekend warriors.
  • It’s also very expensive, coming in at $799, which is way more expensive than other Apple watches and the price won’t turn most people away from the other types of sports watches that have already established themselves in the game.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

It’s a big and chunky watch that does what it says it is going to do on the tin, but for those who are serious about working out and spending time bettering themselves outdoors, then the Apple Watch Ultra will probably be something that isn’t for them. For the hobbyists, then it’s a perfect watch to try out!
