5 reasons why Apple Watch Ultra will become the ambitious upgrade for Apple Watch users

The Apple Watch Ultra is touted as the idea of ​​a smartwatch for those who push the limits on endurance or love the outdoors. But over the past two days, from Apple Event conversations with Apple Watch users, it seems to indicate that the new device has a lot of aspirational value for them to think about upgrading.

Here’s what makes the Apple Watch Ultra appealing to regular Apple Watch users

Bigger but not heavier

The Apple Watch Ultra has a slightly different design with a titanium chassis, larger crown, and an additional Action button that can be customized to do multiple things. The Watch Ultra has a larger face at 49mm, compared to the larger 45mm size on other models, but it’s only a few grams heavier due to the titanium body.


The new watch is designed for the outdoors, which means it can work perfectly in temperatures ranging from -20 degrees Celsius to 55 degrees Celsius. Interestingly, many regular Apple Watch users find themselves in these conditions due to where they are. Additionally, the watch is designed to work underwater to depths of 40 meters.

Battery life

Many regular users could use the Ultra’s extra battery life, which promises up to 36 hours on a full charge and up to 60 hours in low power mode. For users who regularly take long-haul flights, this means they don’t have to find ways to charge their Apple Watches in lounges or mid-flight. And for others, you can keep the charger at home while rushing off for an overnight business trip.

No need to bring the outside inside

The Ultra’s single-buckle strap might seem too clunky for many to wear in the office or just on a casual trip to a restaurant. This is where the fact that the Ultra is compatible with any other Apple Watch band becomes crucial. For many regular users, new groups may then be limited to their outdoor adventures only.

A button for regular actions

The Action button can help you find your way back after a mountain hike, but it can also help you bookmark and find your way to that Indian restaurant you discovered in a new city. The combination of Compass Waypoint and the BackTrack option has so many urban use cases that it is sure to be a much used feature even under normal circumstances. And it helps that the action button can be customized to give quick access to many situations like starting a workout when you don’t have easy access to the screen.

The Apple Watch Ultra will be available in India at Rs 89,900, which is almost double the price of the Apple Watch Series 8. Although this will ensure that many buyers will only yearn for the Ultra and buy it not really, for many more this newbie will become a way to show the world that they can afford to be different from the pack.
