THE Apple Watch Ultra is the latest version of Apple Watch alongside the Apple Watch Series 8. Amid Apple Watch Series 9 speculation, Apple’s current bands are particularly discounted.
Amazon currently offers the Apple Watch Ultra for $729 (opens in a new tab) at checkout (add to cart to see offer price). That’s $70 off its list price of $799 and the lowest price we’ve seen for this Apple Watch. If it’s too rich for your blood, Amazon offers the Apple Watch Series 8 for a record price of $329 (opens in a new tab) ($70 off) and Apple Watch SE 2 for an all-time low price of $219 (opens in a new tab) ($30).
Undoubtedly, these are the best Apple Watch deals of the season.
The Apple Watch Ultra is the best smartwatch for professional athletes and anyone who wants a high-level multifunctional watch that would impress Inspector Gadget. It features the same display technology as the Series 8: an always-on Retina LTPO OLED display. Above the Series 8, the Ultra has a slightly larger case size (1.92 inches by 1.9 inches), sharper resolution (502 x 410) pixels for a density of 338 ppi by 326 ppi ) and a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits.
In our Apple Watch Ultra review, we praise its bold, utilitarian design, gorgeous display, and impressive fitness tracking and battery life. We gave the Apple Watch Ultra a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and our Editor’s Choice Award.
As we’ve grown accustomed to seeing from the Apple Watch series, the Ultra is big on health tracking. It includes apps for tracking heart rate, blood oxygen and ECG, etc. The new features of watchOS 9 are two temperature sensors: one that sits at the bottom of the watch against your wrist, and another that sits just below the screen measuring the outside temperature (and water temperature if you dive). Beyond diving, these inform two important new features in the form of sleep tracking and cycle tracking.
Along with WR100 water resistance, Apple Watch Ultra offers 40-meter diving and swimming protection, a durable MIL-STD 810H certified body, IP6X dust resistance, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, an optical heart rate sensor, a barometer, temperature sensors and an always-on altimeter.
If worry-free battery life, an extra customizable button, and a big screen are important to you, the Apple Watch Ultra might be worth it.
