New Features, Reduced Prices, and a Commitment to Environmental Sustainability.

Apple’s highly-anticipated “Wonderlust” event has ushered in a new era of smartwatches, featuring innovative capabilities, sleek design improvements, and an unprecedented environmental commitment. The star attractions of the day, the Apple Watch Series 9 and the Apple Watch Ultra 2, mark the tech giant’s first foray into carbon-neutral products, aligning with its ambitious goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its entire business by 2030. Here’s a comprehensive breakdown of these cutting-edge wearables.

Building upon the success of its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 8, the Series 9 introduces the new S9 SiP (System in Package) to elevate performance and unlock exciting features. Notably, the Series 9 incorporates a double-tap gesture mechanism, enabling users to control their watches without physically touching the screen. This intuitive gesture allows for actions like answering and ending calls, capturing photos remotely from your iPhone, and even snoozing your morning alarm. Moreover, the Series 9 boasts a brighter display, expedited on-device Siri responses, and Precision Finding for iPhone, which leverages the ultra-wideband chip to effortlessly locate your phone.

For outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers seeking the pinnacle of rugged durability, the Apple Watch Ultra 2 is the ultimate choice. This versatile smartwatch inherits all the remarkable features of the Series 9 and adds even more. Designed to withstand the elements, the Ultra 2 showcases a rugged and robust build, making it suitable for extreme conditions. It includes a depth gauge for diving enthusiasts, supporting dives up to 40 meters deep. Additionally, the Ultra 2 debuts a dynamic modular watch face, providing real-time data around the watch’s edges. A new customizable Action button empowers users to personalize its functions, from initiating workouts to marking compass waypoints or activating a siren for added safety.

Good news for UK consumers, as both the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 come with price reductions. The Series 9 starts at just £399 for the standard 41mm model with GPS, or £429 for the 45mm model – a £20 saving compared to the Series 8 at its launch. For those desiring cellular connectivity, prices begin at £499 for the 41mm model and £529 for the 45mm model.

The Apple Watch Ultra 2, designed for adventurers, is competitively priced at £799, making it £50 more affordable than its predecessor. It’s exclusively available in a combined GPS/cellular configuration.
