Apple Watch Series 9
Priced at 70,900, the stainless steel option has GPS and cellular connectivity.
It is available in starlight, midnight, silver, (PRODUCT) RED, and a new pink aluminium case. The stainless steel option can be bought in gold, silver, and graphite cases. Using the Sport Loop band makes the device sustainable.
The Powerful S9
With 4-core Neural Engine, the watch processes machine learning tasks up to twice as fast compared to its predecessor. Use your Watch 9 to command Siri on your smartwatch to access and log health data for details that don't require the internet.
Apple Watch Ultra 2
Like Watch9, Ultra 2 will also come with the double tap gesture, on-device Siri command, 4-core Neural Engine, and Precision Finding for iPhone, among other things. Apple says it has the brightest display ever, perfect for high altitude and under water adventures.
Use the index finger and thumb of the watch hand to pinch together twice and perform common actions on the device like answering a call, ending a call, changing music, stopping a timer, snoozing an alarm, scrolling through widgets and so much more.
An Adventurer's Delight
Apple said that Ultra 2 has been tested for use across the largest range of altitudes for any Apple product, from 500 meters below sea level to explore the lowest valleys, and up to 9,000 meters to ascend the world’s tallest peaks.
