Apple unveils high-end smartwatch, Apple Watch Ultra Series 2

Apple has unveiled the next iteration of its high-end smartwatch, the Apple Watch Ultra Series 2, alongside the launch of the new Series 9. The announcement, made earlier today, was met with an audible gasp from the audience as the company revealed the rugged smartwatch’s impressive peak brightness of 3,000 nits. The Ultra Series 2 is powered by the same S9 chip that fuels the Series 9, indicating a commitment to consistent performance across their product range.

Despite the advanced features, Apple has managed to maintain the battery life of the Ultra 1, promising 36 hours on a single charge or an extended 72 hours when using Low Power Mode. In line with Apple’s environmental commitments, both the Series 9 and the Ultra Series 2 are carbon neutral when paired with the newly introduced Alpine Loop. This reflects the company’s ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and promote sustainable practices.

The pricing for the new Ultra starts at $799, with pre-orders commencing today. For those eager to get their hands on the latest tech, shipping is set to start on September 22. This announcement is yet another testament to Apple’s innovation in the high-tech wearable market, as it continues to push the boundaries of what smartwatches can offer.
