Apple Watches have become a very important part of the Apple ecosystem: they complement the iPhone and expand its capabilities, thanks to sensors and more. focused on sports and health. Also, it is a device that we always carry on our wrist, providing immediate information, anywhere.
This year’s Apple watches have been updated internally. The architecture of Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 adopts the new S9 SoC, and that means a significant improvement in power and performance. What is the power improvement of the watch for? On the Apple Watch, for its most basic use: improve the accuracy of your sensors.
The Apple Watch Series 9, maximizes daily use
The battery of the Series 9 is maintained compared to the previous generation, despite the increase in power. she The Neural Engine is 29% more accurate than before. In the future, these developments will be very helpful in a glucose sensor, for example – which requires more precision and more calculations per second.
In design, the new Apple Watch Series 9 is the same as the previous generation, in two colors: the pink and space gray. Personally the first thing that catches your attention is the new brighter screen (reaches 2000 nits).
Siri can now access health data, so we can consult the parameters of the health app by asking them directly from the intelligent assistant. It also has new second generation ultra-wideband chip to precisely find other smart objects or share contacts just by bringing the Apple Watch closer to another – which works perfectly.
she The double tap gesture works amazingly live. This is a direct legacy from the Apple Vision Pro receiving gesture, which consists of squeezing your fingers to capture or perform actions with the watch.
The new fine woven fabric straps are soft to the touch, the same as we already know but with new designs that give the phone a new look. The new Apple Watch Series 9 has a milestone in addition to being Apple’s first emission-neutral device.
Apple Watch Ultra 2, power and screen
The new Apple watch for professionals has all the new features of the Series 9, such as the new S9 SoC that improves power, including the second generation ultra-wideband chip. Upgrade your display to an amazing 3000 nits of brightness – the brightest screen ever made by Apple.
Directly, the Ultra 2 is the same as the model we already know from last year, perhaps the rumored Ultra in dark color is gone – although Apple has launched new straps that can perfectly combine the two generation. If the Sport Loop is purchased, the device is also completely carbon neutral.
There is one new modular dial which is designed for Ultra. Finally, almost every pixel of the new watch is used for accurate and complete information on the largest screen. It is also compatible with cycling accessories, which can display their information on the watch screen directly.
The battery has not changed, it is already very good. 36 hours on a charge, 76 in low consumption mode and the same proprietary charging system as of now. The improvement of sensors, double touch gestures are also available in this Ultra 2. The surprise of this generation is in the price: 100 euros cheaper than last year, €899 in Spain. More details and possibilities, in the in-depth review that we will soon offer you at Applesfera.
